"Don't Want To Live In An India Where...": Trinamool's Mahua Moitra

Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra defended her statement that Goddess Kali is often worshipped with meat and alcohol.

Mahua Moitra said she worshipped Goddess Kali.

New Delhi: Amid a spiralling controversy about her comment on Goddess Kali being a "meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess", Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra dared the BJP on Wednesday to prove her wrong.

Here's what Mahua Moitra told NDTV on the controversy:

  1. I am a Kali worshipper. I am a practicing Hindu. The comments were on my own religion. They were not meant to offend.

  2. [BJP's] Nupur Sharma denigrated Prophet Muhammad. I celebrate Goddess Kali.

  3. I don't want to live in an India where I can't talk about religion.

  4. I challenge the BJP to prove me wrong; file an affidavit that this is not how Goddess Kali is worshipped.

  5. BJP is trying to impose a monolithic, patriarchal, Brahminical, North Indian idea of my religion.
