Kali Puja and Bengal are synonymous and this is no new concept; this has been going on for centuries, if not more. The situation in Deganga is certainly no different as well.

What’s more, they warned that Hindus would experience terrible consequences if they dared to worship there any longer. The development did scare Hindus a great deal.
