West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shyam Mondal has allegedly called state’s Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee a ‘hijra’ (eunuch) at a party meeting in Chandrakona, West Midnapore district, according to a report by news agency PTI. The agency reported that while addressing his party workers, Mondal said, “I want to ask the Hindus and Muslims present here. Do Muslims have to prove that they are Muslims when they go to offer namaz at a mosque? Do Hindus have to prove that they are Hindus when they go to temples? Hindu society is ashamed to see Mamata offering namaz during Muslim festivals. Today, it is not clear whether she is a man or a woman. If anyone has seen a hijra in Banaras recently, then I will tell him that Mamata has turned into a hijra here.”

A video was published by the news agency ANI on its Twitter handle on Monday morning where he is seen addressing a small gathering on the street.The agency claims that it is the video of Modal’s statement against Mamata Banerjee. However, the date and time of the video and the identity of the person has not been verified.

As per PTI, Shyamapada Mondal, who is party’s state committee member, alleged that Banerjee has been doing what Muslims do as their religious practice. Asked to comment on the episode, Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee said the BJP was creating an unhealthy political environment in the state. “By making such remarks, they are thinking that they will make their party stronger,” Chatterjee told PTI. “But they should remember that it is Bengal. This will not be so easy here. People will give them a befitting reply,” he told the agency.

So far no action has been taken against the BJP leader for his remarks. However, BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said Mondal would be cautioned. “It is advised that no one should use such words against a woman. This is not expected, and he will be cautioned,” Ghosh told The Indian Express.
