5 min read

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Wednesday said that if BJP wins 2019 elections, it will tear the constitution, replace it with a new one enshrining the principles of a Hindu Rashtra converting India into a Hindu Pakistan. The Lok Sabha MP said the saffron party in power wants a majoritarian rule in the country.

“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,” Tharoor said while delivering a lecture on the ‘Threats Faced by Indian Democracy and Secularism’ on Wednesday.

Tharoor added that the only thing that stand in BJP’s way is a two-third majority in the Rajya Sabha.  “They already have more than 20 states under their belt so a Rajya Sabha majority looks near,” Tharoor warned. The statement caused a huge in news rooms and social media discussion forums alike.

The comments quickly divided Twitter sharply in two camps – one which agreed with Tharoor while the others slammed him for making the statement and accused him of “creating a fear psychosis in the minds of minorities”.

Others personally attacked Tharoor for making the statement despite having “close relations with Pakistan”. Noted Indophile Dr David Frawley said, “Why is it that those who raise the specter of India becoming a dangerous Hindu Pakistan have close relations with Pakistanis, have articles in Pakistan publications, are quoted favorably in the Pakistan press, visit Pakistan and have their pictures taken with Pakistan leaders?”

Some on the microblogging website supported Tharoor claiming that the recent events already point towards India on the way to become a ‘Hindu Pakistan’.

“Shashi Tharoor is factually correct. If Mob lynching,white collar corruption,Silencing of voices against government,Killing and intimidation of journalist,Fake Development propoganda news of government is new Normal then its all signs of HinduPakistan”, a Twitter user said.
