Case Filed on Trinamool’s Mahua Moitra Over ‘Kali’ Remark
Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra faces charges for her comments on Goddess Kali at a media event. Jiten Chatterjee, (the BJP leader) had filed an FIR implicating her for hurting religious feelings.
As Mahua Moitra tweeted – Bring it on BJP! I myself am a Kali worshipper. I am not afraid of anything, not your ignoramuses, Neither goons Nor your police, and definitely not your trolls. Truth doesn’t need backup forces,”
She already told in her earlier comments that it has been twisted by trolls as her support for a hugely controversial film poster shared by filmmaker Leena Manimekalai featuring the Goddess smoking.
While taking part in India Today Conclave East held in Kolkata, the Krishnanagar MP said it is up to individuals how they view their gods.
“For me, Goddess Kali is a meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess. And if you go to Tarapith (a major Shakti peeth in West Bengal’s Birbhum district), you will see sadhus smoking. That is the version of Kali people worship (there). I, within Hinduism, being a Kali worshipper, have the right to imagine Kali in that way; that is my freedom,” she said.
