While the country celebrates the victory of good over evil on Durga Puja every year, a group of students in the Jawaharlal National University have been observing it as ‘Mahishasur Martyrdom Day.’
Yesterday, Smriti Irani created a wave across the country by her speech in parliament. Her speech went viral on all social media platforms. Among many other revelations and great points, she also pointed out something that made me very angry. She pointed out that JNU student union had termed Ma Durga as a fair skinned sex worker who honeymooned with Mahishasur, a dark skinned guy before killing him in his sleep.
The statement reads, “Durga Puja is the most controversial racial festival where a fair-skinned beautiful Goddess Durga is depicted brutally killing a dark-skinned native called Mahishasur. Mahishasur, a brave self-respecting leader tricked into marriage by Aryans. They hired a sex worker called Durga who enticed Mahishasur into marriage and killed him after 9 nights of honeymooning during sleep.”
