Kamala Harris’ niece deletes morphed picture of Maa Durga after netizens’ outrage

Meena Harris, the niece of Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee Kamala Harris, took to Twitter to share a photoshopped image, which depicted Kamala Harris as Maa Durga. The image also showed Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden as a lion, the ‘vahana’ (vehicle) of Maa Durga.

In the image, Kamala Harris symbolized as ‘Durga’ was seen killing US President Donald Trump, who was depicted as buffalo demon “Mahishasura”.

“I am actually speechless, other than to say that the first day of Navaratri was LIT,” said Meena Harris in her tweet.

However, the tweet did not go down well with netizens who slammed her for trying to exploit Hindu traditions for the political brownie points.

Some even questioned whether Harris would draw up such a caricature with Prophet Muhammad of Islam.

Just few days back, a man chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ had beheaded a teacher over allegations of showing caricature of Prophet Muhammad to his students.

Some even questioned the fairness of trying to use Hindu symbolism in a bid to sway votes ahead of US Presidential elections.

Some even questioned what work Kamala had done to be compared to Goddess Durga.

Amusingly, Kamala Harris also appears pretty clueless about the festival.

In a strangely worded tweet, Harris had wished Hindu Americans happy Navratri as a ‘holiday’.

Following the social media outrage, Meena Harris quietly deleted her tweet.
