Senior actor Anupam Kher has questioned his thinking about a tweet by Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor. In his tweet, Tharoor described the killing of the only Kashmiri Pandit Sarpanch killed by militants in Kashmir as the murder of just one Congress worker. After which Kher asked him what has happened to your thinking?
Expressing displeasure at Tharoor's tweet, Anupam wrote, 'O dear Shashi Tharoor, you are such a educated person. What has happened to your mind? In this scenario, when a terrorist kills anyone from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, he is killing an Indian and not a member of any political party. How much distraction is spoken. Sangat has such a bad effect !! '.
O dear @ShashiTharoor!! You are such an educated person. What has happened to your thinking? In this scenario when a terrorist kills anyone from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, he kills an INDIAN. Not a political party member. What a twisted thing to say !! Compatible so bad effect !! 4 https://t.co/xyv3RHlobR

Tharoor wrote – Congressmen being murdered all over the country
Anupam reacted sharply to a tweet by former Union Minister and Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram seat in Kerala, Shashi Tharoor, in which he described the murder of the lone Kashmiri Pandit Sarpanch Ajay Pandita as a Congressman. In his tweet, Tharoor wrote, 'Congressmen are being murdered from Kashmir to Kerala because of their stand for secularism and democracy. The message is clear, all enemies of the Idea of India want a Congress-free India.
Sarpanch was killed on 8 June
Earlier in the evening of Monday, June 8, militants shot dead the only Kashmiri Pandit Sarpanch Ajay Pandita in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district. According to the police, the incident took place around 6 pm, when the terrorists shot Sarpanch and Congress member Ajay Pandit from Lakhipavan area of Larkipura district in the back.
Anupam expressed his strong anger
Even after this incident, Anupam shared a video on social media, wrote, 'I am very sad and angry with the ruthless killing of Ajay Pandita, the only Kashmiri Pandit sarpanch in Anantnag. My heartfelt condolences to his family. In this case, the suspects have also kept silence, otherwise they shed tears in the chest. In the video, he said that the nineties are being repeated again in Kashmir. This incident surprises the silence of the intellectuals who thrash the death of terrorists in Kashmir and say that injustice has been done.
Deeply saddened & angry at the merciless killing of the lone #KashmiriPandit sarpanch #AjayPandita in Anantnag yesterday. My heartfelt condolences to his family. There is an obvious silence from the usual suspects who cry their heart hoarse otherwise. #JusticeForAjayPandita pic.twitter.com/5TnLpABOh2
