Ramakrishna Mission says ‘shocked, angry’ at TMC MLA’s Maa Sarada remark
The Ramakrishna Math and Mission expressed ‘shock and anger’ at a Trinamool Congressman’s alleged audio clip in which he claimed that ‘Maa Sarada is reborn as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’. Condemning Trinamool MP Nirmal Majhi’s alleged remark, Swami Suvirananda, General Secretary of Ramakrishna Math and Mission, said, “We are shocked and angry at his remarks…Sarda Devi’s image has been seriously hurt…Maa Sarada Devi is not just a majestic woman. , she is the spiritual personality at the level of Sita, Radharani, Vishnupriya Devi… She had the same vision for everyone irrespective of race, religion and caste… All the monks of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission, the Brahmachari, feel with great sadness and anger that the chef has dishonored our absolute adored Sarda Devi with his statement. Countless fans send us emails and phone calls expressing their anger and grief. We can’t quite find the language to express our grief. Our mother’s lack of respect seems to be miserable. Never let such an unprecedented incident be repeated by anyone. Following Swami Suvirananda’s statement, Trinamool Congress spokesman Kunal Ghosh said party leaders had been instructed to refrain from making such a remark. In an audio clip, the MP for Uluberia reportedly said, “A few days before her death, Maa Sarada told some of Vivekananda’s assistants that after her death she would be born as a human being in Kalighat. She said she would do social work and be involved in political activities. Numerology, statistics show that Mamata Banerjee is Maa Sarada. Rejecting the MLA claim, Swami Suvirananda said, “None of the authentic books that have been published so far on Maa Sarada contain this information. I did not hear this from any of the monks and devotees of the house who came into contact with Sardadevi. We don’t understand where the chef got this strange information.
