Tharoor on Monday tweeted that his Thiruvananthapuram office was attacked by "Yuva Morcha BJP vandals". Tharoor said that the attackers and raised offensive banners and shouted slogans, asking him to go to Pakistan.

This comes days after Tharoor was in news for his 'Hindu-Pakistan' remark, for which he was severely criticized by the BJP.

Following the incident, even Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala had said in a press briefing that Congress leaders should "choose their words carefully".  

"All Congress leaders must realise this historic responsibility bestowed upon us while choosing words and phraseology to reject BJP's hatred," Surjewala had said.
