The message is clear, says Shashi Tharoor

Anupam Kher tweeted on June 9, "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."

The 65-year-old actor was not happy with Shashi Tharoor politicising his killing. Anupam Kher tweeted, "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!! संगतकाइतनाबुराअसर!!"
