Rahul behind ‘Hindu Pakistan’ remark, says BJP  2 Months ago

Source:   Times Of India  

NEW DELHI: BJP on Thursday said Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s “Hindu Pakistan” jibe was made at the instance of party chief Rahul Gandhi who feared losing support of Muslims and was out to appease the minority community.

“Yet again, Tharoor has cattle-classed Indian democracy. The Congress’s character is that it crosses the ‘Lakshman rekha’ (limit) in its hatred for Narendra Modi and BJP, and in doing so, it assaults Indian democracy,” party spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters. ‘Cattle-classed’ was a reference to the term that Tharoor, then a junior minister in the UPA government, had used when there was a suggestion that ministers travel economy class.

“It is shameful to denigrate one’s own country, one’s own country’s democracy, to denigrate the Hindu religion time and again. This is a shameful act for which Rahul should come out and not only apologise but explain to us why any leader of that party, whenever they open their mouth, they speak this way,” he said.

BJP’s Anil Baluni alleged that Tharoor was following the script of Rahul, alleging that he had told a Muslim delegation that Congress was a “ pro-Muslim party”.
