Shashi Tharoor Defends 'Malayali Taliban' Tweet Despite Immense Backlash
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor received immense backlash after tweeting a video claiming to be of the Malayali Taliban. "It sounds as if there are at least two Malayali Taliban here — one who says “samsarikkette” around the 8-second mark & another who understands him!", tweeted Tharoor. However, he stood his ground while sharing an article that quoted intelligence reports saying eight IS Keralites were among the freed prisoners.
