hear the news
The controversy surrounding the black film is taking a political colour. In the first TMC MP Mahua Moitra commented about Maa Kali. BJP is furious against this, so now Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has come out in support of Moitra. Tharoor tweeted, “Every Hindu knows whatever Mahua Moitra said. He said that how one believes in religion, leave it to him (the devotee).
Shashi Tharoor made two consecutive tweets. “The attacks on Mahua Moitra have taken me by surprise. These attacks are happening because of what every Hindu knows. Hindus know that the way of worship varies from place to place in the country. Only that devotee knows what one offers to the Goddess. He further said, we have reached such a situation, if we say something about someone on a public platform, then someone’s sentiment will be hurt. However, it is certain that Mahua did not say so out of a sense of humiliation. He further said, I appeal to everyone to keep the atmosphere cool. How one believes in religion, it should be left to the devotee.
I am a black devotee, I am not afraid of anyone.
Earlier, Mahua Moitra tweeted and said, I worship Kali. I am a devotee of Kali and am not afraid of anyone. The BJP kept on attacking, he said. I am neither afraid of your ignorance, nor the police, nor the goons nor your trolls. Truth doesn’t need any power.
TMC has done away
BJP is attacking on Mahua’s statement. FIR is being registered at many places regarding his statement. Meanwhile, Mahua Moitra’s party Trinamool Congress has distanced itself from his statement. Moitra had said on Tuesday that Kali has many forms. To me Kali means the goddess who accepts meat and wine. MP Moitra had said during the discussion, ‘It depends on you how you see your God. If you go to Bhutan and Sikkim, then whiskey is offered to God in worship there. At the same time, if you give whiskey to someone in Uttar Pradesh, then his feeling can be hurt. For me Goddess Kali is in the form of a meat-eater and a wine-drinker. Goddess Kali has many forms.’
