Kamal Nath in soup after cutting temple-shaped birthday cake; BJP says it is an ‘insult to Hindus’

Kamal Nath, senior congress leader and former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, sparked controversy on Wednesday after a video of his pre-birthday celebrations went viral where he was cutting a temple-shaped cake with Lord Hanuman’s portrait on it.

As the video surfaced online, BJP accused the congress leader of insulting Hindu sentiments while the grand old party defended its leader, saying that during Nath’s three-day visit to his hometown of Chhindwara, his supporters celebrated his birthday, which falls on November 18 , in advance

The Congress said Nath’s supporters brought the cake, which was shaped like the 35-meter Hanuman Mandir he built there before becoming the chief minister.

In the video, Nath, who calls himself “Hanuman-bhakt” (a devotee of Hanuman), is seen with the cake. The celebration apparently took place at the home of the former chief minister in Chhindwara on Tuesday night.

BJP accuses Kamal Nath of ‘insulting Hindus’

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan slammed Kamal Nath, calling his actions “insult to Hindus”.

“Congress was against Ram Temple. Now they remember Hanuman ji only for voices… They put the picture of Hanuman ji on the cake and cut it. This is an insult to the Hindu religion and the Sanatan tradition,” Chouhan said.

BJP’s Chhindwara district Vivek ‘Bunty’ Sahu also launched an attack against Kamal Nath, saying that although the congress leader has built the Hanuman temple in Chhindwara, he has no faith.

Former CM Nath may have built Lord Hanuman’s temple, but he has no faith in the temple. He and his whole family often go to great lengths to play with the Hindu faith,” he said.
