Bhopal: A case has been registered against Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra on charges of hurting religious sentiments of Hindu over her remarks on Goddess Kali in support of a film directed by Leena Manimekalai.

The Bhopal police have filed an FIR based on a complaint by a resident of Bhopal's Jahangirabad. The police have charged Section 295 (A) of the Indian Penal Code deals with deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs.

Responding to the FIR against her, Mahua tweeted that "Bring it on BJP! Am a Kali worshipper. I am not afraid of anything. Not your ignoramuses. Not your goons. Not your police. And most certainly not your trolls. Truth doesn't need back up forces."

The MP had said at an India Today conclave in Kolkata that she had every right as an individual to imagine Goddess Kali as a "meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess" as every person has the right to worship God in their own way.

Attending an India Today conclave in Kolkata, she said as an individual she had every right to imagine Goddess Kali as a "meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess" as every person has the right to worship God in their own way.

"For me, Goddess Kali is a meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess. And if you go to Tarapith (a major Shakti peeth in West Bengal's Birbhum district), you will see sadhus smoking. That is the version of Kali people worship (there). I, within Hinduism, being a Kali worshipper, have the right to imagine Kali in that way; that is my freedom," she said.

"I have the freedom to do it (envision a meat-eating goddess) as much as you have the freedom to worship your god as vegetarian and white-clothed."

A day earlier, the TMC distanced itself from the remarks made by Moitra on Goddess Kali during a media event on Tuesday. The party said the remarks were made by the MP in "her personal capacity" and were "not endorsed by the party".
