Maa Kaali is with India, says PM Modi; won’t take lessons on goddess from Malviya, says TMC 4.75/5 (4)

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the blessings of Goddess Kaali are always with India as he addressed the centenary celebrations of Swami Atmasthananda, who was the 15th president of the Ramakrishna Math.

His remarks came amid the raging controversy over Goddess Kaali in connection with which the BJP has demanded the suspension of Trinamool Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra from the party.

As PM Modi spoke at the occasion, he remembered Ramakrishna Paramhans and said, "Swami Ramkrishna Paramhans was a saint who experienced Maa Kaali in front of his eyes." PM Modi also referred to Bengal's Kaali Puja and Swami Vivekananda. "Swami Vivekananda had such stature but he used to become like a child in his devotion for Goddess Kaali. Such unwavering faith was also there in Swami Atmasthananda," PM Modi said.

"Maa Kaali's blessings are always with India," he said.

 

Hitting back at BJP's Amit Malviya over his Kaali remarks, TMC MP Saugata Roy said that there was no need to give a lesson to Bengali Hindus about Maa Kaali. Amit Malviya is spreading lies.

He said, "The PM never did ‘Kali Shadna. He went to a program at Ramakrishna Mission today. What Amit Malviya has said is not right. We will not interfere in any religious issue. That is our party's stand. And we will not create controversy. This is why we did not support our MP. But we will not take a lesson from Amit Malviya about Maa Kaäli."

Referring to PM Modi’s speech, BJP leader, Amit Malviya on Sunday targeted CM Mamata Banerjee and TMC MP Mahua Moitra and tweeted, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks reverentially about Maa Kaali being the center of devotion, not just for Bengal but whole of India. On the other hand, a TMC MP insults Maa Kaali and Mamata Banerjee instead of acting against her, defends her obnoxious portrayal of Maa Kaali."

 

The controversy erupted after filmmaker Leena Manimekalai shared the poster of the film on social media. The poster depicts a woman dressed in the costume of Goddess Kaali. She is seen smoking a cigarette in the photo. Along with her usual accoutrements of trishul (trident), and sickle, the actor playing the goddess is shown wielding the LGBTQ+ community's pride flag.
