“I want Muharram to be observed peacefully and none should believe in rumours. Hindu religion is not imported. It has its roots in Bengal as leaders like Swami Vivekananda and Ramakrishna Paramhansa hailed from this cultural state. We believe that festivals like Eid and Durga Puja are for all and it unites everyone,” Mamata Banerjee said.

She criticised attempts to foment riots and indulge in divisive politics. She pointed out that social media is being used as a tool for spreading violence and creating riots.

“One section of people is tarnishing the image of social media by posting some pictures and trying to trigger riots,” said the Chief Minister.

“But one should remember that spreading fire is easy but dousing it is very difficult. We will not allow anyone to play with fire,” Banerjee said on the sidelines of a meeting ahead of Bengal’s biggest festival slated from October 15-19.
