While BJP supporters were rejoicing at the news of Narendra Modi’s wax statue at Madam Tussauds, 65 Indian MPs wrote a letter to Madame Tussauds urging the administration not to build the wax statute of Prime Minister Modi. 21 Rajya Sabha members and 43 Lok Sabha members on Wednesday signed a letter written by Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi said “The denial comes on grounds of human rights violations in Gujarat when Modi was chief minister” He added “Gujarat Riot was the worst thing that ever happened to India after the 1947 Emergency.. sorry sorry.. 1975 Emergency”.
The Christian community has also supported Rahul Gandhi and has given the logic that the amount of wax required to build Modi’s statue can be used to make 100,000 candles for protest purpose, the figure being equal to their annual target of converting Hindus into Christians.
One of the MPs who chose to be anonymous said “If Modi’s wax statue can get a place in Maddame Tussauds wax museum, Mr. Owaisi’s wax statue should get a place at least in the Lonavala wax museum, and Rahul Gandhi in any museum”.
This is not the first time when someone with a wax statue at Madame Tussauds is in a controversy, other eminent personalities have also been in similar kinds of controversies in the past. Bollywood star Govinda also has his wax statue, which famous journalist Barkha Dutt claims to be hers. After her claim, Madame Tussauds had declared the statue as Disputed Property.
