“Hindu-Muslim unity is our cultural heritage and Tharoor has tried to defame it,” said Rashid.“People of India will never forgive him and his party for such a statement,” Rashid said, adding that the Congress will have to face consequences for its MP’s statement in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Agra: An Aligarh-based Muslim outfit leader on Thursday announced a reward of Rs 11,000 for anyone who blackens the face of Congress leader Shashi Tharoor , who has kicked up a controversy with his remarks that if voted to power again, the BJP will rewrite the Constitution and pave the way for creation of a “Hindu Pakistan”.Slamming Tharoor for his comments, Ameer Rashid, who is the president of Muslim Youth Association in Aligarh, said that the Congress leader has hurt the sentiments of both Hindu and Muslim nationalists.
“If Tharoor loves Pakistan so much, he should move there,” he added.At an event in Thiruvanthapuram on Wednesday, Tharoor said, “If they go on 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 of India and write a new one.”
