Mamata Dares PM Modi, Amit Shah to Compete With Her on Chanting Mantras

Accusing the BJP of only playing politics over the Ram Mandir issue, the West Bengal chief minister said her government had built a skywalk at the iconic Dakshineshwar temple.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday hit out at the BJP saying  “Worship does not mean only putting a tilak on the forehead. You must understand the meaning of the mantras. I challenge Modi-Shah to compete with me in chanting mantras,”

On BJP questioning her religion, She said neither she nor the people of the state need to learn the meaning of ‘communal harmony’ from the “divisive BJP”.

She even challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah to see who can chant mantras better.

The TMC supremo was speaking at a pre-holi event organised by the Marwari community.

Mamata stressed that the BJP plays politics of religion, while she believes in religion that has humanity, not that which has a political colour.

“There are people who question my religion. I want to tell them that my religion is humanity and I do not need lectures from others about religion,” she said at a programme in connection with the upcoming Holi festival.

On BJP’s allegations that she does not allow puja to be conducted in Bengal, she said they should go and see how many ‘mandir’ (temples) have been constructed during the TMC regime.

“Ek Ram mandir nahi bana paya, rajniti kar liya (They were unable to build the Ram mandir, but managed to play politics around it.),” Mamata said and added that her government had built a skywalk at the iconic Dakshineshwar temple in the state, and has undertaken several developmental works at religious sites.

She also paid homage to the slain jawans and their families saying, “I don’t believe in religion where they play politics over blood. I don’t play Holi with blood.”
