Thiruvananthapuram:  A group of Bhartiya Yuva Morcha activists vandalised Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s office today. They were protesting his ‘Hindu-Pakistan’ remark. 

According to a Hindustan Times report, police said activists poured black oil at the entrance of the office, put a black flag and a board on which ‘Tharoor’s Pakistan office’ was written. 

Protestors fled from the scene when police reached Tharoor’s office. Though, police have registered a case against a group of unidentified people. 

When the attack took place, neither Tharoor nor anyone else was present in the office.

State opposition leader, Ramesh Chennithala said, “It is a dastardly attack. It exposed the real face of the BJP.” 

“Yuva Morcha worker’s action was a democratic way of protest. Workers have every right to vent their anger if they are provoked with such irresponsible statements,” said BJP Thiruvananthapuram district president S Suresh.

Shashi Tharoor recently said that India will become “Hindu Pakistan’ if BJP comes to power in 2019 Lok Sabha election. Tharoor said, “A state with a dominant majority religion that seeks to put its minorities in a subordinate place will be a Hindu Pakistan.”
