Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s wife Amruta was trolled on Tuesday for promoting a Christian-related charity event.

The former banker and social worker, however, hit back saying that she is a ‘proud Hindu’, and that “empathetic journalists and journalism should not ignite the fire of religious differences.”

Earlier, Amruta, who attended a Christian charity event on Monday night, posted a photograph from the event on Twitter which didn’t go down well with some Twitterati who started trolling her. 

“launched-Be Santa-campaign, as Ambassador for @927BIGFM – to collect gifts from people -for poor children, to bring smiles to their faces during this Christmas.Drop ur gifts at nearest @927BIGFM & Feel the joy -as best way to multiply your happiness is by sharing it with others,” she tweeted Monday.

She was accused by a section of social media for "promoting evangelism", "luring Hindus into the fold of Christianity" and "encouraging Christian missionaries" by "promoting their agenda".

In her defense, the first lady of Maharashtra claimed that she was a "proud Hindu" and would do all that she can to unite Indian citizens and bring in harmony.

“I’m a proud Hindu & like many, I celebrate every festival in my country & that is an individual choice.. We represent the true spirit of our country. and that doesn’t dilute our love towards our country, religion & humanity. In my capacity as a Proud Hindu Citizen, I will always try to unite & bring in harmony wherever I can. But just wish to remind you that empathetic journalists & journalism should not ignite the fire of religious differences. Ican’t stop a serene action bcoz of some wrong deeds!” Amruta Twitted.

Amruta is known for her active involvement on social causes. Amruta has adopted two villages and is also an adviser to different NGOs working for the causes that she believes in.
