Moitra had said, “How do you see your God. If you go to Bhutan and Sikkim, then whiskey is offered to God in the morning worship, but if you give this to someone in Uttar Pradesh, then his feeling can be hurt. For me Goddess Kali is in the form of a meat-eater and a wine-drinker. There are many forms of Goddess Kali.”
At the same time, when the opposition to this statement of Mahua increased, TMC sidelined itself. The party has said that Mahua Moitra’s remarks on Goddess Kali are her personal views. The party does not support this. All India Trinamool Congress strongly condemns such comments.
At the same time, Mahua Moitra had also clarified when the controversy escalated. She said, “To all you sanghis- lying will NOT make you better hindus. I NEVER backed any film or poster or mentioned the word smoking. Suggest you visit my Maa Kali in Tarapith to see what food & drink is offered as bhog. Joy Ma Tara.”
