Kaali row: Mahua Moitra points clarification, says ‘by no means backed any movie’

New Delhi: The BJP has lashed out at Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra for her ”insulting” remarks on Goddess Kaali and requested if the “freedom of speech is just for insulting Hindu Gods and Goddesses.” BJP’s social media head Amit Malviya slammed Mahua Moitra for ‘insulting’ Goddess Kali and dared her to make comparable feedback concerning the Gods of different religions.

Talking at an occasion organised by a non-public TV information channel, Malviya stated, “Freedom of speech is only for insulting Hindu Goddesses. From MF Hussain to Owaisi to now Moitra, all have selectively targeted the Hindu religion because they know that Hindus are tolerant.” 

BJP additionally demanded an apology from the TMC chief Mamata Banerjee over the problem. “TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee should clarify it. This is not the first time that such instances have been reported. Earlier too TMC leaders have done the same. We think this is the official stand of the ruling TMC to hurt the sentiment of Hindus to get votes,” BJP state vice-president Rathindra Bose stated.

 It could be famous that the TMC chief has courted controversy for her feedback that Goddess Kaali is a “meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess”. Nonetheless, Moitra later issued a clarification, saying she “never backed any film or poster or mentioned the word smoking”.  

The firebrand TMC MP took to Twitter and stated, “To all you Sanghis- mendacity will NOT make you higher Hindus. I NEVER backed any movie or poster or talked about the phrase smoking. Recommend you go to my Maa Kali in Tarapith to see what foods and drinks are provided as bhog. Pleasure Ma Tara.” 



It could be recalled an enormous controversy has erupted over the poster of Canada-based Indian filmmaker Leena Manimekalai’s upcoming documentary “Kaali.” The poster of the movie depicted a girl wearing a fancy dress portraying the goddess and smoking. A flag of the LGBT neighborhood is seen within the background.

Earlier on Tuesday, the TMC chief had courted controversy for her reported remarks, “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).”

She additionally added, “within Hinduism, being a Kali worshipper I have the freedom to imagine my Kali in that way… that is my freedom and I don`t think anyone`s sentiments should be hurt. I have the freedom… as much as you have to worship your god.”

Condemning the remarks made by Moitra, the ruling TMC later distanced itself from the feedback.

“The comments made by @MahuaMoitra and her views expressed on Goddess Kali have been made in her personal capacity and are NOT ENDORSED BY THE PARTY in ANY MANNER OR FORM. All India Trinamool Congress strongly condemns such comments,” the social gathering stated in a Twitter publish. 

The portrayal of Goddess Kali within the poster didn’t go down nicely with a piece of social media customers who’ve demanded the poster be withdrawn. Some even demanded strict motion towards her and the hashtag `Arrest Leena Manimekal` is trending on Twitter.

A number of police complaints have been filed towards the filmmaker for allegedly hurting the spiritual sentiments of Hindus.
