Outrage over poster showing Kamala Harris as Goddess Durga

Presidential elections in the United States are less than two weeks away and both Republicans and Democrats are trying their best to convince the voters. From the Democrats, Indian origin Kamala Harris is the vice presidential nominee and is trying to woo the Indian-American voters through her India connections. However, one such attempt has landed her into controversy after a photo of her was tweeted showing her as Goddess Durga.

The picture was shared by Kamala's niece Meena Harris on microblogging website Twitter and showed Harris as the Goddes Durga killing the US President Donald Trump, who was depicted as the demon Mahishasur.

The photo resulted in outrage from Hindu groups in America who demanded an apology from Meena for tweeting the 'offensive' image. The tweet was later deleted.
