New Delhi: A complaint has been filed against All India Hindu Mahasabha whose Durga puja pandal had showcased an idol resembling Mahatma Gandhi instead of Asura that was killed by Goddess Durga.

Following this the organisers of the puja had to change and removed the face after pressure from the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The organisers later said that the similarities were “just a coincidence”.

Following this incident, BJP spokesperson Samik Bhattacharya said that they do not support such things.

He said such things are absolutely unacceptable and the administration should take immediate steps against the organisers.

The pictures and videos from the durga puja pandal has gone viral on social media. Twitter users are also criticising this act.

More details awaited.
