The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today came down heavily on Congress party over party leader Shashi Tharoors remarks that India will turn into Hindu Pakistan if BJP wins the 2019 elections. Addressing the media here, party spokesperson Sambit Patra termed the remark as shameful and asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to tender an apology and explain Patra said that the Congresss hate for BJP and PM Narendra Modi has now At least seven generations of the Congress party will have to answer why they discriminated against Hindus in the country. He said that the Congress had previously linked Hindus to terrorists to coin the word Hindu terrorism. He also blasted the party for doubting the Army and made a reference to senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azads recent remarks saying the Army is killing civilians. Patra said that the Congress party issuing a statement that it distances itself from Tharoors comment is not enough. He asked the Congress to hold a press conference and apologise for insulting Hindus. When Kapil Sibal says in Supreme Court that the Ayodhya issue should be heard after the 2019 polls, Congress says it is his personal opinion. When Chidambaram and Sushil Kumar Shinde talk of Hindu terrorism, you say it is their personal opinion. When Ghulam Nabi Azad and Saifuddin Soz insult the Army and the Constitution, you say it is their personal opinion. Why doesnt the Congress just come out and say that the Congress party is only about Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and nobody else, Patra said.
