Shashi Tharoor Mocks Modi’s Traditional Naga Headdress, BJP Demands an Apology For Insulting People of North East

Shashi Tharoor may have once again landed himself in trouble after his statements about Modi’s headdress have gone to the extent he may not have imagined. It is Shashi Tharoor’s reference to the attire and dresses of the North-East as ‘hilarious’ and ‘outlandish’ which has triggered an uproar now. The Congress leader has been expounding on over the last few days about Prime Minister Narendra Modi not ever wearing a skull-cap.

Addressing a forum at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, Tharoor, a Lok Sabha MP, took aim at the Prime Minister, asking: “Why does our Prime Minister, who wears all sorts of outlandish headgear wherever he goes around the country, all over the world… why does he always refuse to wear a Muslim skull-cap?”, Tharoor asked. He added, “You’ve seen him in hilarious Naga headdresses with feathers and various kind of extraordinary outfits.”

As expected, the reference has not gone down well with the Northeast leaders. A number of prominent North-East leaders, including Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio has called for Tharoor and the Congress to apologise. Check out Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio’s tweet on the controversy.

Several BJP leaders and Union ministers took to Twitter to slam the Congress MP’s remarks. Check out the tweet:

Tharoor, who had recently kicked up a controversy with remarks that the BJP, if voted to power again, will rewrite the Constitution and pave the way for creation of a ‘Hindu Pakistan’, said Modi shunned the green colour as he felt it was associated with Muslim appeasement.
