In July 2018, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor while addressing an event in Thiruvananthapuram said if BJP won Lok Sabha elections, it would create a condition leading to the formation of a “Hindu Pakistan”.

He further added that, “If they (BJP) win a repeat in the Lok Sabha, our democratic constitution as we understand it will not survive as they will have all the elements they need to tear apart the constitution of India and write a new one.”

“..that new one will be the one which will enshrine principles of Hindu Rashtra, that will remove equality for minorities, that will create a Hindu Pakistan and that isn’t what Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom struggle fought for,” he added.

In response to this, Kolkata court has issued an arrest warrant against Shashi Tharoor for comments.
