A Kolkata Court has issued an arrest warrant against Congress MP Shashi Tharoor over his alleged remark that the BJP will rewrite the Constitution and pave the way for creation of a “Hindu Pakistan”.
Tharoor’s alleged statement had sparked off a controversy with the saffron party demanding an apology from the Congress leader.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Dipanjan Sen issued a bailable warrant against Tharoor on a petition by lawyer Sumit Chowdhury, who claimed the statement promoted disharmony.
The matter has been scheduled for hearing again on September 24.
