Read about Shashi Tharoor’s Twitter faux pas

Following the ‘soft Hindutva‘ approach Congress is taking to woo back alienated communities, Congress leader, who had once reportedly told the court he is not a Hindu, wrote a book ‘Why I am a Hindu’ has committed a faux pas while wishing for Mahavir Jayanti today. Congress MP Shashi Tharoor today wished his followers for Mahavir Jayanti, the birth anniversary of the twenty-fourth and last Tirthankar and is one of the most important religious festivals of the Jains by posting a picture of Gautam Buddha.

Twitterati came together to teach Tharoor a lesson or two in religion, liberally sprinkled with humour.

After being pointed out his error, Tharoor accepted the same and posted a link to the source of his image where he said he welcomes more authentic and acceptable alternatives.

While Gautam Buddha and Lord Mahavir, both stood for peace and non-violence, and were born decades apart, they are very different from each other and founded two different Indic school of thoughts. One would expect someone who writes books on India and Hinduism to have the basics sorted.
