MV Govindan, the Kerala state secretary of the CPI(M) is drawing flak for his statements at a press conference regarding remarks by Speaker AN Shamseer about Lord Ganesha.
When asked by a journalist if Lord Ganesha is a myth, he said, “Is ganapati science then? Let us look at myths as myths only. The formation of Kerala is also a myth, right? We are not against believers.”
However, when asked if Allah is a myth, he said, "I didn't say all Gods are myths. Unlike Hindus, Muslims doesn't have 1000s of Gods. They believe in a higher concept single God!"
