Shashi Tharoor Says BJP's Win In 2019 Will Lead To Creation Of "Hindu Pakistan"

New Delhi: Shashi Tharoor, the leader of Congress stated that if the BJP is re-elected in the 2019 national elections, the minorities' rights would be trampled, which will make India a "Hindu Pakistan". This comment faced a lot of backlash from the BJP which demanded an apology from Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

On Tuesday, while addressing an event in Thiruvananthapuram, Mr Tharoor had said that the BJP will write a new constitution, making India less tolerant and inclusive.

He said, "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," as reported by news agency ANI.

Sambit Patra, BJP spokesperson 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."
