Ram Gopal Varma has landed himself in trouble by sparking off controversy with his “offensive” comments against Lord Ganesha. Hurt with his atheist remarks, lawyer and political activist Shehzad Poonawalla on Friday lodged a complaint with Delhi police and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) against Varma. Poonawalla said, “Varma’s tweets hurt everyone’s’ sentiments.”

A Congress leader said, “Ram Gopal Varma’s tweet is condemnable. This is a secular country and one should always respect others religious feelings. He has hurt the religious sentiments of many people by giving this statement.”

Meanwhile, Varma had apologized, “All tweets I put on Ganesha were in my usual manner but unintended by me to hurt anyone’s sentiments…but if they did I sincerely apologize.” Varma earlier wrote and deleted, “The guy who couldn’t save his own head from being cut, how he will save others heads is my question? But Happy Ganpathi day to morons!”
