Trinamool Congress's Mahua Moitra -- who had a clutch of police cases filed against her over her remark on Goddess Kali as a "meat-eating and alcohol-accepting goddess" that has offended the BJP -- on Wednesday said she stands by her comment and challenged the party to prove her wrong.

As per news report of NDTV, the BJP, she said, "is trying to impose a monolithic, patriarchal, Brahminical, North Indian idea of my religion". "I challenge the BJP to prove me wrong. Anywhere in Bengal where they file a case, there will be a Kali temple within 5 km where the goddess is worshipped thus," she told NDTV in an exclusive interview. Citing the Kaal Bhairav temple of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, and the  Kamakhya temple of Assam, she dared the BJP governments of the two states to file affidavits contradicting her. One of the police cases  filed against her is in Bhopal.
