Muslim Youth Offers Rs 11K For Blackening Shashi Tharoor’s Face
On Thursday, a Muslim youth leader from Aligarh, UP declared a reward of Rs 11,000 for blackening the face of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor who has sparked a controversy with his statement that India will become a “Hindu Pakistan” if BJP wins the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
President of Muslim Youth Association in Aligarh Mohammad Ameer Rashid condemns Tharoor’s statement. He said that Congress leader has not only hurt the sentiments of Hindus but also of Muslim nationalists too. He also said, “Hindu-Muslim unity is our cultural heritage and Tharoor has tried to defame it.”
He also said, “This irresponsible statement is backed by Congress leadership and has hurt not only Hindus but the patriotic Muslims too and is merely an attempt to divide Hindus and Muslims living together in a great nation.”
He also said that India’s people would never forgive him for passing such a baseless statement. Congress Party would have to face the consequences in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He added that if Tharoor loves Pakistan so much then he should consider moving there.
On Wednesday, Shashi Tharoor, had stated, “If they have been able to win a repeat of their current strength in the Lok Sabha, then frankly, our own democratic Constitution, as we understand, will not survive… because then they will have all the three elements they need to tear up the Constitution and write a new one,” at an event in Thiruvananthapuram.
He further stated that the new Constitution will be the one which will enshrine the principles of Hindu Rashtra, which will remove equality for minorities and will create a Hindu Pakistan, which was not what Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and the great heroes of India’s freedom struggle fought for.
