Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday sparked big controversy after he said that 'India will become Hindu Pakistan, if BJP wins 2019 Lok Sabha elections'. Here is how twitter reacts!

Addressing an event in Thiruvananthapuram on 11 June 2018, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor stated that the BJP will write a new Constitution which will pave the way for a nation, much like Pakistan, where rights of minorities are not respected.

“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,” he said.

“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,” he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“They already have more than 20 states under their belt, so a Rajya Sabha majority looks near,” he said, adding, “Now if they could muster what they managed during the last Lok Sabha polls, India is done for.”

The BJP sharply countered the comment, saying the Congress had “demeaned and defamed” Hindus of India.

The party demanded Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s apology. Speaking to ANI, Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Rahul Gandhi must apologise for what Shashi Tharoor said. Congress was responsible for creation of Pakistan because of its ambitions yet again it has gone ahead to demean India and defame Hindus of India.”

Patra also took to Twitter and said that the Congress doesn’t lose any opportunity to demean India and defame Hindus.
