Shashi Tharoor in a bid to suppress the agitation against “Padamavati” film, made an extremely derogatory statement on the great Maharajas who ruled India for centuries.
Read the statement made by him!!!
“It is (our fault) and I say so. I actually don’t take the mantle of victimhood. In about half a dozen places in the book, I am harsh enough on us… Some British reviewers said ‘Why doesn’t he explain why the British conquered?’ And it’s a fair question…”
“In fact, every single one of these so-called valorous maharajas, who today are after a Mumbai filmmaker because their honour is at stake, they were less concerned about their honour when the British were trampling all over it. They scurried to accommodate themselves. So let’s face it, there is no question, that we were complicit,”
- So for Shashi Tharoor, the Maharajas who built India were so-called valorous. Isn’t this an insult made to Indian heritage?
- The Maharajas who fought for India’s Independence are so-called valorous?
- The Maharajas who built stunning art piece are so-called valorous?
- Mr Tharoor, you are enjoying freedom today, because the maharajas had sacrificed their lives for you.
This is how Smriti Irani’s master plan divided the Congress party!!!
“Did all the Maharajs (kings) kneel in front of the British? What will Jyotiraditya Scindia, Diggi Raja (Digvijaya Singh) and Amarinder Singh say on Shashi Tharoor’s comments?”.
This is how Smriti Irani questioned the Congress leaders who claim that they come from royal Maharajas’ family. Shashi Tharoor said that Indian kings were not valorous. Perhaps he meant to say that the kings who were the forefathers of the modern day Congress leaders were the ones who knelt under the British.
How Scindia got angry and bashed Shashi Tharoor?
“I think he should study history, I am Jyotiraditya Scindia and I am proud of my past”, this is how he revolted against Shashi Tharoor.
When the anger grew against Shashi Tharoor, he smartly made a u-turn!!!
“I am dismayed that some BJP supporters are claiming I attacked Rajput honour. I spoke about the Maharajahs who made their accommodations w/the British. I have never made a communal comment in my life”.
“As for specific concerns of the Rajput community, people’s sentiments must be respected in the interests of India’s diversity& harmony. Rajput valour is part of our history & is not in question. BJP & its censors should take these concerns into account”.
