Shashi Tharoor Quotes Anupam Kher’s 2012 Tweet On Patriotism; Latter Calls It Proof Of The Politician's ‘Unemployment’
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher and politician Shashi Tharoor recently locked horns on Twitter. The two were involved in a war of words after Shashi Tharoor shared an old tweet by Anupam Kher, which the latter posted back in 2012. Anupam Kher’s tweet was a quote that talked about how a patriot must be ready to defend his country against the government. Now, years later, in a different context, Shashi Tharoor said that he totally agrees with him.

Anupam Kher's tweet from 2012 was a quote by Edward Abbey, which read, "A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." Sharing this tweet now, Shashi Tharoor wrote, "Thanks @AnupamPKher. Agree with you totally here." He then shared a quote by Mark Twain, which read, "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it." Anupam Kher hit back, and replied that Shashi Tharoor finding a tweet from years ago, and commenting on it today, was proof of his ‘unemployment and brainwashing’. Kher further wrote that it was a sign of ‘how far he had fallen’.

Anupam Kher’s tweet read, “प्रिय  @ShashiTharoor! आपने मेरे 2012 के ट्वीट को ढूंढकर निकाला, आज उस पर टिप्पणी की। ये न केवल आपकी बेरोज़गारी और दिमाग़ी कंगाली का प्रमाण है।बल्कि आप इंसानी तौर पर कितना गिर चुके हैं इसका भी सबूत है।मेरा ये ट्वीट जिन लोगों के लिए था वह आज भी भ्रष्टाचार का प्रतीक हैं।You Know It.”


Shashi Tharoor addressed Anupam Kher accusing him of stooping low. He wrote, “Dear @anupamPKher: So my quoting your 2012 tweet is stooping low; what would you say about a Govt that only quotes 1962,1975& 1984?  यह भी बेरोज़गारी और दिमाग़ी कंगाली का अंतिम प्रमाण है? मेरा ये ट्वीट जिन लोगों के लिए हैं वह आज भी अपनी नाकामयाबी दिखा रहे हैं भारत के सीमे में.” ALSO READ: Sushant Singh Rajput Demise: Anupam Kher Shares A Motivational Post, Encourages Aspiring Actors Not To Give Up – VIDEO
