"It feel bad that I hurt my Jain friends & my friends @ArvindKejriwal & @SatyendarJain . I hereby quit all active political work/affiliation," Dadlani tweeted on Saturday.

Soon after the singer tweeted on the Jain guru, he was ridiculed by several Jain sect followers.

However, Dadlani was quick to reply with an apology where he also appealed everyone to not mix religion and politics.

Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter and said that his family deeply respects Tarun Sagar.

Delhi Home Minister Satyendra Jain also took to Twitter to apologise on Dadlani's behalf. "I apologise for hurting feelings of Jain community by my friend @VishalDadlani. I seek kshama from Muni Shri Tarun Sagar ji Maharaj," he tweeted. 

On Friday, after the adjournment of the first day of the monsoon session of Haryana Vidhan Sabha, Tarun Sagar had addressed the Haryana Legislative Assembly, which was attended by Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki, members of the House as well as bureaucrats.
