Intervening in the row over the remarks, Mr Javadekar said there are no plans for a national seminar to prove Darwin wrong.
"I have discussed the matter with my MoS and I have asked him to refrain from making such comments. We should not dilute science. This is the advice I have given him," Mr Javadekar told PTI.
"We are not going to fund any event or don't have any plan for a national seminar to prove Darwin wrong. It is the domain of scientists and we should let them free to continue their efforts for progress of the country," he added.
Following his statement on Darwin's theory, Mr Singh had also called for an international debate on the issue to decide if it merits a place in school textbooks.
"I propose, if the Ministry of Human Resource Development is ready to sponsor a world-level international conference to decide what is true and factual and that must be taught in schools and colleges," he added.
Mr Singh had said our ancestors have nowhere mentioned that they saw an ape turning into a man, thereby casting doubts on Darwin's evolution theory.
