Outlook Magazine Admits to Quoting Home Minister Rajnath Singh 'Erroneously'

Home Minister Rajnath Singh speaking in Lok Sabha


New Delhi:  "Outlook" magazine admitted to have "erroneously" attributed to Home Minister Rajnath Singh "Hindu leader" remark which created a storm in Lok Sabha yesterday.

In a statement uploaded in the weekly's twitter handle @Outlookindia, the magazine yesterday said that in a Lok Sabha debate earlier today, CPI-M MP Mohammad Salim referred to a story publish by it in its November 16 issue.
 "In this story, a remark made by late Ashok Singhal of Vishwa Hindu Parishad was erroneously attributed to Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Outlook deeply regrets the lack of diligence in verifying the source of the statement.

"It was not our intention to denigrate the Home Minister or Parliament. Outlook sincerely regrets the embarrassment caused to Mr Rajnath Singh and Mr Mohammad Salim. The online version of the said article has been corrected to put the facts on record," the statement of the weekly said.

The article created a storm in Lok Sabha after CPM leader Salim raised it, prompting the Home Minister to strongly deny it. The statement of the CPM leader was later expunged by the Speaker.
