Is BJP starting Taliban in Hinduism, questions Shashi Tharoor

Congress MP Shashi tharoor, who had earlier triggered the controversy with “Hindu Pakistan” remark has again lashed out at BJP by questioning them whether they want to start “Taliban in Hinduism”

“They are asking me to go to Pakistan. Who has given them the right to decide that I am not a Hindu like them and I don’t have the right to stay in the country? Have they started a Taliban in Hinduism,” Tharoor said in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

This comes after Tharoor on Monday accused the BJP youth activists for waving black flags at his office in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala and damaging his office. He alleged that slogans were raised against him; asking him to go to Pakistan.

“@YUVAMORCHABJP vandals attacked my constituency office in Thiruvananthapuram. They poured black engine oil on signs, doors, walls & gate, drove away innocent citizens waiting with their petitions, put up offensive banners & shouted slogans asking me to go to Pakistan. We have all been warned. The BJP’s answer to the simple question “have you given up the dream of a Hindu Rashtra?” is apparently vandalism & violence.  That is the face they have shown in Thiruvananthapuram today. Most Hindus will say these Sanghi goondas do not represent us,” he had tweeted after his office was attacked.
