After ‘good Hindu, bad Hindu’ comment, Shashi Tharoor goes on a tirade against Ram Temple at Ram Janmabhoomi again

Shashi Tharoor avoided answering a direct question about whether he would want a Ram Temple built at Ram Janmabhoomi by saying he had already 'said what he had to'

After insulting the Hindu Community by his ‘Good Hindu-Bad Hindu‘ tirade, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has now insinuated Hindus by saying that they should follow their own scriptures and stop violence to get their way to build Ram Mandir. Shashi Tharoor went on to say that Hindus should rather build Ram in their hearts.

Reportedly, The Congress MP was responding to his recent controversy, where he had said that no good Hindu would want a temple at the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid site.

“In fact, if anything, there is a scripture that says build Ram in your heart. And if Ram is built in our heart it should little matter where else he is or he is not, because he is everywhere,” Tharoor said in an exclusive interview to PTI.

Tharoor went on to contend that while a good Hindu is somebody who believes his worship but Hindu scriptures do not allow the use of violence to have one’s way. He further said that the Hindus in the country are seeking to build a Ram temple by resorting to violence.

“My only point is, would a Hindu have wanted to build such a precious place at the expense of conducting an act of violence. A good Hindu is a law-abiding Hindu. A good Hindu is someone who has ‘insaaniyat’,” the Congress leader asked.

Following Shashi Tharoor’s statements, social media users reacted and highlighted Tharoor’s hypocrisy and his Christian appeasement politics.

Some Social media users suggested Tharoor of making Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Minister in his hearts.

It would seem like Shashi Tharoor’s only aim is to continually assert that a Ram Mandir should not be built on Ram Janmabhoomi in order to appease Congress’ votebank. He said:

“Advani said he would have respectfully wanted to relocate the site and Vajpayee had also hinted at all sorts of compromises provided the Ram Temple could also be built, it could even be a joint wall between a mosque and a temple. Who knows what Vajpayee would have wanted? He is not here to tell us but no, neither of them ever spoke in terms of demolishing the mosque and when it happened they both condemned it. So what am I saying that is so shocking for the BJP?”

He went on to call the fact that there was a temple which was desecrated to build the Babri Masjid merely an “academic debate”.

The Congress leader with these polarising statements seems to be hinting at the Congress party’s position regarding the Ram Mandir Issue. Congress Party has been reluctant to take a stand, while its senior leaders like Kapil Sibal are actively fighting against the interests of Hindus in Ram Janmabhumi case. However, Congress President Rahul Gandhi who is unsurprisingly silent on this issue and rather busy playing Janeudhari Hindu by visiting several temples in the poll-bound states.
