PM Modi breaks silence on Kaali controversy | WATCH
Prime Minister of India - Narendra Modi

Amidst the Kaali poster controversy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given a statement. Without mentioning the controversy, PM Modi said that the country has the blessings of the Goddess Kaali and the way forward will be found only through the consciousness of the mother.

On the occasion of Swami Atmasthanand’s 100th birthday celebrations, Prime Minister Modi said, “Today, the world is talking about a sustainable lifestyle, a pure lifestyle; this is a field where India has thousands of years of knowledge and expertise.” Our country has long served as a global leader in this area. 

The prime minister continued by stating that Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa was a saint who had a clear vision of Maa Kali and had committed his entire life to serving Maa Kali. He used to say, “This entire world, this variable, everything is mother.” The religious beliefs of Bengal and the whole of India have the same consciousness.
