Following Tharoor’s ‘Hindu Pakistan’ jibe, the Aligarh Muslim Youth Association says it will pay `11K to anyone who blackens his face
Lucknow: Upset over Shashi Tharoor’s ‘Hindu Pakistan’ statement, the Aligarh Muslim Youth Association has announced a reward of Rs 11,000 to anyone who blackens the face of the former Union Minister and senior Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor.
Association president Amir Rashid charged Tharoor with hurting the sentiments of the people of the country, particularly Hindus. “His statement was against the secular character of the country and an attack on the cultural and social fabric of the country. He abused Hindus and tried to create a divide in the society in the name of vote-bank politics. People will not forgive him for his divisive statement,” alleged Rashid.
“We have not registered any FIR yet. We are verifying the complaint with Kerala police,” said SSP Lucknow.
Meanwhile, a complaint has been lodged against Shashi Tharoor at the Gomtinagar Police Station in Lucknow by a Muslim intellectual and advocate Rizwan Ahmad for allegedly making a ‘provocative statement’.
