FIRs have been lodged in many cities of UP, Madhya Pradesh and Bengal, including Kanpur, against Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s objectionable statement on Devi regarding ‘black film’. The BJP has demanded the arrest of Moitra in the midst of a political uproar over bad words. Meanwhile, the Aga Khan Museum in Canada has apologized to the Hindu community by removing the controversial poster of the film.
His party Trinamool Congress has already distanced itself from Moitra’s statement. On Wednesday, the party tweeted about this again. At the same time, BJP Bengal President Sukanta Majumdar said on Wednesday, if the police do not initiate action against Moitra in ten days, then we will go to the court.
At the same time, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Chouhan said, Moitra has hurt the religious faith of Hindus. We will not tolerate insult to deities at any cost. State Home Minister Narottam Mishra said, the government is considering banning Leena Manimekalai’s documentary film Kali.
Moitra said, come to Tarapith temple and see the enjoyment
Moitra tweeted, targeting the opposition, you will not be able to become a good or a big Hindu by resorting to lies. I have never endorsed any film or poster, never used the word smoking anywhere. I invite you to visit Maa Kali’s temple at Tarapith, so that you can see what food and drink she enjoys. Truth doesn’t need any support.
Mahua unfollows Trinamool on Twitter
Mamata Banerjee and Mahua Moitra’s relationship also saw a rift on Wednesday, after she shrugged off the Trinamool’s statement. Mahua has unfollowed the party’s account on Twitter.
Tharoor came in support of Mahua, Congress shunned
Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Wednesday, “I am shocked by the attack on her (Moitra) over Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s remarks on Maa Kali. I urge people to be less serious and allow individual to practice religion as they like. He tweeted, I am not unaware of the maliciously fabricated controversy, but am shocked by the attack on Mahua Moitra for saying that.
Every Hindu knows that what the devotees offer as bhog tells more about them (the devotees) than the goddess. “We are in an era where no one can publicly say anything about any aspect of religion without claiming to have offended anyone,” he said. It is clear that Mahua Moitra was not trying to hurt anyone.
Aga Khan Museum said – we respect all religions
The poster of ‘Kali’ was removed by the Aga Khan Museum. The museum apologized and said, we respect all religions. All promotional material of the film has been removed immediately. The Indian Mission had appealed to the Government of Canada in this matter.
