Shashi-Tharoor

Amid ongoing controversy over the Kaali documentary poster, the senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday clarified that whatever he tweeted is his personal opinion.

His comments come a day after his Twitter post on Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s remarks on Goddess Kali. While her party, the Trinamool Congress, has distanced itself from its party MP terming it as her personal opinion.

Mahua Moitra is facing heat on social media days after erupting a huge controversy at a conclave when she said that she had every right as an individual to imagine goddess Kali as a meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess.

Taking to Twitter, Tharoor said he does not have any other kind of opinion except personal. Quoting Alexander Hamilton, he also wrote those who stand for nothing, fall for anything. He had tweeted without making any reference.

While the BJP severely criticised Mahua Moitra and her party Trinamool Congress distanced itself from the comment and condemned it, the Lok Sabha MP got support from Shashi Tharoor who said Mahua Moitra was being attacked for saying something that every Hindu knows.

What devotees offer as bhog to the goddess says more about them than about the goddess, Tharoor had said.

At a time when Trinamool Congress publicly denounced Mahua Moitra’s statement that Kaali is a meat-loving and liquor-accepting goddess, Tharoor had said that he was taken aback by the attack on Moitra and urged everyone to lighten up and leave religion to individuals to practice privately.

A day after the TMC distanced itself from its party MP’s controversial remarks on Kaali, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has now broken her silence on the ongoing controversy and advised her that people make mistakes but they can be rectified.

Mahua Moitra, who is known for his fiery speech, is now facing a series of complaints for her comments on Goddess Kaali.
