Don't disturb peace during Durga Puja: Mamata warns BJP, RSS

Don't disturb peace during Durga Puja: Mamata warns BJP, RSS”

She added that politics should not be done in the name of festivals.

Stating that her government did not put any curb on celebration of Vijaya Dashami rituals, Banerjee said, "There is misinformation campaign by certain outfits that we are stopping Vijaya Dashami celebrations at puja pandals and households". "Those having no inkling about Durga Puja and Kali Puja celebrations in Bengal are spreading all sorts of rumours", she said. Some people are trying to play dirty politics over Durga Puja. On September 4, the Trinamool Congress chief had directed the police to stop any attempt of Shastra Puja (weapon worship) on Vijaya Dashmi.

On September 11, PTI reported that RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's programme in Kolkata will go ahead as per schedule, despite the state government cancelling permission for the venue citing security reasons. Mamata is against procession with arms even while it is part of "Shastra Pujan". "Mamata is the daughter of a Brahmin and she knows the paraphernalia of pujas, but she ignores those to appease Muslims and ensure her vote bank". "This is not appeasement [of minorities]". It is what we have inherited since Independence. "It is not our invention", she said, according to India Today.

CM Mamata said, "One thing should be clear- there shouldn't be any immersion during Muharram".

The West Bengal government on Friday told the Calcutta High Court that it would allow immersion of Durga idols till 10 pm on Bijoya Dashami, extending the time by four hours from the previous deadline. The immersion will not be allowed on October 1 on account of Muharram but it will again be permitted on October 2.
