“Not Endorsed By Party”: TMC Distances Itself From Mahua Moitra’s Remark On ‘Maa Kaali’


After TMC MP Mahua Moitra called Hindu deity Maa Kali a “meat-eating, alcohol-accepting goddess”,  the Mamata Banerjee’s party has condemned the remarks.

Taking to Twitter, the Trinamool Congress wrote: “The comments made by @MahuaMoitra at the #IndiaTodayConclaveEast2022 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.”

Mahua Moitra, speaking at India Today conclave East 2022 on Tuesday, had reacted to a controversy over a movie poster showing Goddess Kaali smoking a cigarette.

“Kaali to me is a meat-eating, alcohol-accepting goddess. You have the freedom to imagine your goddess. There are some places where whiskey is offered to gods and in some other places it would be blasphemy,” Ms Moitra had said at the conclave.

“When you go to Sikkim, you will see that they offer whiskey to Goddess Kaali. But if you go to Uttar Pradesh, and if you tell them that you offer whiskey to the goddess as ‘prasad’, they will call it blasphemy,” she further added.
