Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], July 12 (NT): Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor who are facing charges in his wife Sunaanda Pushkar murder case said that if Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wins 2019 general elections then India would turn into a 'Hindu Pakistan'.
on Tuesday addressing at a gathering in Thiruvananthapuram, Tharoor further said that the BJP will form a new Constitution which will create the ambience for a nation, much like Pakistan, where rights of minorities are not valued.
He added that new one will be the one which will preserve principles of Hindu Rashtra, that will take away equality for minorities and that'll create a Hindu Pakistan and that isn't what the father of nation Mahatama Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom battle fought for.
Criticizing Tharoor’s remark, the BJP demanded Congress chief Rahul Gandhi's apology.
Sambit Patra the spoke person of BJP took to Twitter and said that the Congress doesn't lose any chance to degrade India and insult Hindus.
“MR Sashi Tharoor says India will become “Hindu-Pakistan” if BJP returns to power in 2019!
Shameless @INCIndia doesn’t lose any opportunity to demean India & defame the Hindus!
From “Hindu terrorists” to “Hindu-Pakistan” the Pak appeasing policies of Cong are unparalleled!
