Shashi Tharoor while addressing a rally at Thiruvananthapuram called the BJP’s vision for India as that akin to a Hindu Pakistan. The MP received an enormous backlash from bhakts and non-bhakts alike.
Congress MP, Shashi Tharoor said that the BJP’s vision for India is as good as forming a Hindu Pakistan while addressing a rally at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerela.
In case you missed it, this is the statement from Shashi Tharoor:
“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 Mahatama Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom struggle fought for.”
The MP from INC clarified his statement through a post from his official Facebook account.
I have said this before and I will say it again. Pakistan was created as a state with a dominant religion, that…
The statement came in the wake of the caste and religion politics played by the ruling BJP to create nationwide vote banks and divide the country based on the lines of majoritarianism.
However, his statement was not well received by the twitterati and they attacked him down with their own allegations, abuses and disfigured tweets.
If India had to become a Hindu Pakistan, it would've happened long ago. India is the only country where the requirements of the majority are neglected so as to facilitate the needs of the minorities. @ShashiTharoor is clearly engaging in minority appeasement. #HinduPakistan

Shashi tharoor's communally charged 'Hindu Pakistan' remark is nothing more than appeasement of minority votes. We strongly demand his apology. Who is he to disgrace our harmony-base free country.1/2

Only a mentally sick person can compare his country with Pakistan by saying it "Hindu Pakistan". ससी थुरूर-एक बेवड़ा।।

Dear Shampoo boy @ShashiTharoor, second term to BJP will not make India 'Hindu Pakistan.' But its clear as daylight multiple-term rule of your party has created 'original' mini-Pakistans in almost every city of India

Mr. Tharoor’s statement “Hindu Pakistan” is only helping BJP and BJP can help Tharoor in Sunanda case. Is it a Quid pro quo? 🤔#ConspiracyTheory

Nehru created "Muslim Pakistan" but not "Hindu Hindustan" at the same time we are suffering because of that decision till today . @ShashiTharoor has audacity to say BJP will create "Hindu Pakistan" if in power. BJP will be in Power in 2019 to create "AKHAND BHARAT" Cong Lost it

It is because of liberal comments like "Hindu/Saffron Terror", "Hindu Pakistan", "Ram is a myth", "Ram is a misogynist", "bangles are anti-feminism", that I just don't see myself supporting the Opposition.#HinduPakistanComment

Shashi Tharoor says that BJP can turn India into hindu pakistan.
Anyone found agreeing will be beaten to death.

Better a Hindu Pakistan than an Idiotic India led by the Gandhis and people like Tharoor who push their skewed narrative.
