Kerala court issues arrest warrant against Shashi Tharoor

The court had summoned the Congress MP on 1 November but his office claims the notice did not mention the date of his appearance


A local court in the capital of Kerala Thiruvananthapuram has issued an arrest warrant against former Union Minister and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor. The Chief Judicial Magistrate First Class of Thiruvananthapuram issued this warrant against Congress Tharoor on charges of defamation of Hindu women.

Shashi Tharoor is accused of writing and defaming against Hindu women in one of his books. Despite the notice of the court, in this case, Shashi Tharoor neither appeared himself nor any lawyer was produced on his behalf, after which the court issued an arrest warrant against him.

After the warrant issued by the court, the office of Shashi Tharoor said it had received information from the about the arrest warrant. “We got court summons a few days ago. The time to appear on the warrant was noted, but the date was not given,” an office-bearer said.

On behalf of Tharoor’s office, it was said that their lawyer had requested a fresh summons with the date mentioned, bringing it to the notice of the court. “We did not receive a new summons,” they said.

The matter will be brought to the notice of the court on Monday and further steps will be taken accordingly.

Earlier this year, a Delhi court had granted bail to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in June in another defamation case for his ‘scorpion’ remark against Narendra Modi wherein he had said that the prime minister, he had been told, was like a scorpion on a linga of Shiva that could not be crushed with one’s feet.

In the case against him in the Kerala court, he is alleged to have defamed women of the Nair community in one of his books, The Great Indian Novel. The book, published in 1989, caught the attention of people anew this year when excerpts from its contents were quoted during the Lok Sabha campaign.

Tharoor wrote in the that there was a time in Kerala when a man of the Nair community would know whether his wife was ready to receive him by checking whether another man’s slippers were lying outside their bedroom.
