Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has said that it is safer "to be a cow than a Muslim" at many places in India, remarks that may trigger a controversy.
Tharoor's remarks comes close on the heels of his "Hindu Pakistan" statement that invited criticism from his political opponents.
He also posted the link of his article published on a news portal, which had the "cow-Muslim" remark.
The remarks also came days after 28-year-old Akbar Khan was lynched by a mob in Rajasthan's Alwar district on suspicion of cow smuggling.
