On Tuesday while addressing an event in Thiruvananthapuram Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said that if Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is elected again in 2019 Lok Sabha elections than it will give rise to a condition that will result in the formation of “Hindu Pakistan”. He explained that BJP winning the elections again will destroy the rights of minorities in the country thereby making India a “Hindu Pakistan”. On such a comment from Congress leader Shashi Tharoor which was no more than an allegation was extremely criticized from the BJP in context to which an apology has been demanded by the Bharatiya Janata Party from Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
According to our news sources, Shashi Tharoor was addressing an event in Thiruvananthapuram and while giving a speech he tried to target BJP with a statement which meant that after winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections BJP will write a new Constitution which will be very similar to Pakistan in terms of giving no respect to the rights of minorities.
“If they (BJP) win a repeat in the Lok Sabha, our democratic constitution as we understand it will not survive as they will have all the elements they need to tear apart the constitution of India and write a new one. That new one will be the one which will enshrine principles of Hindu Rashtra, that will remove equality for minorities, that’ll create a Hindu Pakistan and that isn’t what Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom struggle fought for,” said Tharoor while addressing an event.
He further said that at present BJP has its government in more than 20 states so the party already seems to have a Rajya Sabha majority and if they manage to do what they did in the last Lok Sabha polls than India surely will suffer.
Such a statement was highly criticized by the party and an apology has been demanded the same from the Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
Regarding this BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Rahul Gandhi should apologise on the behalf of Shashi Tharoor. She further added that formation of Pakistan was the result of politics by Congress in order to achieve the ambitions of the Party and that Congress has crossed all its limits in order to demean India and defame Hindus.
Patra also took the matter to Twitter and alleged Congress on the same as the party never loses an opportunity to demean India and defame Hindus.
