Bengal Before RSS :: Raam Mandirs and Tradition of Raam Bhakti in Bengal

The incumbent Trinamool, as the party lately shed relics of 'Congress' tag off their logo, has been vocal with acute shrill that Lord Raam is not Bengal's deity; Since Durgapuja is celebrated with great pomp and fervor in today's Bengal, RaamNavanmi, hence, is not a Bengali festival and it is an RSS-BJP conspiracy to import this Raam culture from the dehats of North Indian cow belt. Many of their front line ideologues have cascaded this falsehood everywhere. As if they do not know who He was to invoke Devi Durga untimely in Autumn (Akaal Bodhan), the usual time Bengalis worship the Mother Divine. Then again, why would they toe Mamata's lines, had they read texts and honored reasons?
