If you are an avid user of social media then you must’ve come across the hashtag #arrestleenamanimekalai, this hashtag is on the top because the tweeple are agitated over the poster of a documentary Kaali, where the goddess can be seen smoking a cigarette.

Tweeple are saying that the poster of Kaali hurts the religious sentiments of Hindu followers. In the poster, it can be seen that the Hindu goddess Maa Kali was seen smoking a cigarette. The filmmaker Leena Manimekala shared the poster on Facebook and wrote that she is super thrilled to share the launch of her recent film today at Aga Khan Museum. A 6-minute excerpt of the film, ”Kaali” will be shown today as part of Aga Khan Museum’s ”Rhythms of Canada”, a week-long festival celebrating the diverse tapestry of Canadian Culture. Entrance to the event and the Museum’s permanent collection Gallery during the festival is free.

As soon as the poster was out and it came to the notice of people, users started talking about it. One of the users said that When you violate others’ freedom, yours ends. Insulting others’ beliefs isn’t art or free speech. The insulters of Hindu deities should be brought to justice. International society must combat Hinduophobia and stand with India.

5 candidates contested for the 4 Rajya Sabha seats in the elections, including JD(S) contestant D Kupendra Reddy. The elections were marred by cross-voting.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Thiruvanthpuram on Tuesday that the BJP would win double-digit seats from Kerala in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Prime Minister was addressing a rally of BJP workers to mark the conclusion of a month-long, state-wide padyatra led by party state president K Surendran.

He added the opposition parties have realised their defeat in the elections of 2024. PM Modi said they have lost their mental balance.

This has been the prime minister’s third visit to Kerala in less than 2 months. The prime minister said the huge crowd that had joined the Surendran-led padyatra has made the BJPs target of 370 seats in the Lok Sabha easier.

The Prime Minister said he is committed to fulfill the expectations of people and this is Modi’s guarantee. He said the BJP-led union government has never shown any discrimination towards Kerala. He said in the last 10 years the BJP-led central government has ensured Kerala’s development and the wise people of the state know this.

PM Modi predicted that in the third term of the BJP government, India will become the largest force in the world and this is Modi’s Guarantee. He said the third Modi government will increase its fight against corruption. He added in the last 10 years, more than 25 crore people have been brought out of poverty.

The Congress will also contest for both of the Goa seats in the elections. While in Gujarat, the AAP will field candidates for two seats and the Congress Party for 24 seats. Additionally, nine Haryana seats will be contested by Congress candidates, and the Kurukshetra Lok Sabha seat will be represented by an Aam Aadmi Party candidate. However, the two parties in Punjab will not form an alliance.

In addition to the AAP, the Congress and the Samajwadi Party have agreed to share seats in Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state in the country, with 80 representatives in the Lok Sabha. The SP and its supporters will compete for the remaining 63 seats, leaving the Grand Old Party to contest 17 of them.

During the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi, the Congress head at the time, put out a similar seat-sharing scheme. However, the negotiations between the two parties’ could not come to a conclusion, and hence it collapsed. In the 2019 elections, the BJP easily won all seven seats in the capital, handily defeating the AAP and Congress, who combined received less than half of the total votes cast.
