I hate those who indulge in communal politics: Mamata Banerjee
On Tuesday, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee inaugurated a number of Kali Puja pandals. Speaking on the occasion, she once again communal politics of the BJP.
She said that the BJP is doing communal politics and is trying to divide people on the basis of religion, something which the people of Bengal won’t tolerate. The BJP is doing this because it does not have any acceptance here.
She said she has nothing but hate for those who use others’ religious beliefs to hold on to their existence. It is a personal matter as to who wants to follow which religion; nobody can force a belief on another person. It is the duty of those in power to unite people, not divide them.
Many people intentionally keep beef inside temples and then spread the rumour that someone has done it hurt religious beliefs. One of them was caught red-handed and had admitted that he was a BJP member. Therefore the Chief Minister asked everyone not to fall into the trap of communal misinformation.
She said that the colour of the blood of both Hindus and Muslims was the same – red. In Bengal, people of different religious denominations and beliefs stay in unity. Hence, she appealed to everyone to stay together in peace.
