Arrest Mahua Moitra is trending all over Twitter amidst the Kaali row as the Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP came in support of Leena Manimekalai and her upcoming movie Kaali. Mahua Moitra sparked outraged as she made some controversial remarks about the Hindu deity.

Ever since the poster of Kaali surfaced on the internet filmmaker Leena Manimekalai has been targetted by the netizens. She suffered severe backlash as the depiction of the Hindu goddess Kaali with a cigarette and a pride flag in the poster didn't go down well with netizens. This was considered disrespectful and The Delhi and UP police filed an FIR against the filmmaker.

The filmmaker however stood her ground and stated that she is ready to pay with her life. Recently after #ArrestLeenaManimekalai, Arrest Mahua Moitra has been trending on Twitter. The TMC MP has come under the spotlight for coming in support of the poster. She said that she believes Kali is a "meat-eating, alcohol-accepting goddess" at a media conclave. This however sparked massive outrage, leading TMC to distance itself from the views of the MP and issued a condemnation. This is not he first time Mahua Moitra has faced backlash, she has been been previously criticised for her opinions on the meat ban in South Delhi.
