Prime News, National (New Delhi), July 18:- Amid protests against him over his ‘Hindu Pakistan’ remark, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor lashed out at the protestors asking them if they want to start a ‘Taliban in Hinduism’. “They are asking me to go to Pakistan. Who has given them the right to decide that I am not a Hindu like them and I don’t have the right to stay in the country? Have they started a Taliban in Hinduism,” Tharoor said in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.
Tharoor’s remark comes on a day when the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) youth wing activists waved black flags at his office in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. They earlier defaced his office, poured black engine oil on signs, doors, walls & gate and shouted slogans asking him to go to Pakistan.
“Today @YUVAMORCHABJP vandals attacked my constituency office in Thiruvananthapuram. They poured black engine oil on signs, doors, walls & gate, drove away innocent citizens waiting with their petitions, put up offensive banners & shouted slogans asking me to go to Pakistan. We have all been warned. The BJP’s answer to the simple question “have you given up the dream of a Hindu Rashtra?” is apparently vandalism & violence. That is the face they have shown in Thiruvananthapuram today. Most Hindus will say these Sanghi goondas do not represent us,” he had tweeted after his office was attacked. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
