A life-size idol of Goddess Kali, lying upside down in a temple in Siliguri city of the Indian state of West Bengal, has left god-fearing devotees outraged amid a reported incident of a failed robbery attempt to take away the jewels that decorated the idol in the temple.
Idol of Maa Kali at Gate Bazar Kali Mandir in Siliguri was demolished. Seculars won’t say anything on this. pic.twitter.com/b9E1O3AOVH— Roop Darak (@iRupND) January 21, 2020
The pictures ensued a debate on social media, as Hindus slammed "seculars" and "liberals" for not speaking up against “attacks on Hinduism” and while being vocal about issues concerning Muslims.
Don't worry I'm a biggest follower of Maa Kali and she will punish them because she is very alive .— Amitabha Chaudhuri (@cb89be1fc9ca477) January 21, 2020
They think by vandalising Maa kali' s form they vandalised Devi's image in our heart? 🤣— Rahul Sarraf (@RahulSrraf) January 21, 2020
They don't know that we Hindus' know the art of making God's and worshipping them without form too ! May she punish the culprits with right karma!

Hindu goddess Kali, widely viewed as a destroyer of evil forces, is frequently portrayed as standing or dancing on Shiva, one of the most important deities of Hinduism, who lies beneath her.
