    After the attack, Tharoor tweeted, "Today @YUVAMORCHABJP vandals attacked my constituency office in Thiruvananthapuram. They poured black engine oil on signs, doors, walls & gate, drove away innocent citizens waiting with their petitions, put up offensive banners & shouted slogans asking me to go to Pakistan."

    Tharoor sparked a massive controversy with his remarks on a Facebook post that if voted to power again, the BJP will rewrite the Constitution and pave the way for the creation of a "Hindu Pakistan".

    Tharoor said many proud Hindus like him cherished the inclusive nature of the faith and had no desire to live, as their Pakistani neighbours were forced to, in an intolerant theocratic state.

He has been booked under Section 2 of Prevention of Insult to National Honours Act. He has also been slapped with charges against 153 and 295(A) of the IPC as well "for hurting the sentiments because the word Hindu has been quoted related to an Islamic State", said the petitioner.
