Congress IT cell attacks BJP’s Bangalore South candidate for performing Ayudha Puje as per Hindu rituals

An old picture of Tejasvi preparing for Ayudha Puje with weapons and tools around him has gone viral, trying to shame him by implying he has a 'violent' side to him.

Following the announcement of Tejasvi Surya’s candidature for Bangalore South Lok Sabha seat for the BJP, members of Congress IT cell have descended upon him, attacking him for performing the Ayudhya Puje as per the Hindu traditions.

As if just tweeting and attacking Tejasvi was not enough, Congress even resorted to using paid promotion to try and attack Tejasvi.

As seen above, the tweet by one Vishal Singh Jain appears as a ‘promoted’ tweet on another user’s timeline, suggesting Congress has paid to advertise that tweet on the timelines of even those who do not follow him.

Ayudha Puje is a part of the Navratri celebrations where weapons and tools are worshipped. In Karnataka, it signifies the killing of Mahishasur demon by Goddess Chamundeshwari. The festival is widely celebrated across the South India, with little variations in the manner of worship.

This is not the first time Tejasvi has been attacked for this particular picture where he is worshipping the weapons and tools as part of Ayudha Puje.

The 28-year-old advocate, Tejasvi Surya is perhaps one of the youngest candidates for the upcoming elections.

Hindu festivals, rituals and gods have quite recently been the target of mockery, fearmongering and hatred by the so-called ‘secular liberal’ intellectuals of India. When blatant disregard and insult and mockery do not work, liberals proceed to stoke the ‘guilty Hindu’ psyche. They try to project Hindu festivals and rituals as something to be ashamed of. Diwali becomes the sole cause of air pollution and swimming pool loving liberals become suddenly conscious of water wastage on Holi. Rakhi, Karwa Chauth and Bhai Dooj are the symbols of patriarchy and Jallikattu becomes atrocity against animals for boastful beef-eaters.

Recently, we witnessed how the sudden popularity of the ‘Rudra Hanuman’ image by Karnataka based artist Karan Acharya had pushed liberals into a frenzy. There were tweets, posts even editorial pieces on how the ‘Angry Hanuman’ image is a symbol of militarised Hinduism and it was even accused of spreading hatred and causing communal discord.

This was followed by the ‘Militant Ganesha‘ when a so-called journalist spotted an idol of Lord Ganesha riding a tiger and wearing tiger skin. As anyone who has even a basic idea of Hindu culture would know, Lord Ganesha is the son of Goddess Parvati, whose avatar Goddess Durga rides a tiger and Ganesha’s father is Lord Shiva, who is sometimes depicted as having dark (blue) skin and wearing tiger skin as his attire.

Ayudha Puje being depicted as some sort of ‘violent’ past which Tejasvi has been hiding from the world is just another attempt by the Congress to make Hindus feel embarrassed about their being Hindus.
