Ukraine Hails ‘Vishwaguru’ India, Seeks Help With War, Then Mocks With ‘Hinduphobic’ ‘Kali’ Cartoon

Ukraine has hailed India as “Vishwaguru” (world leader) and sought help with its ongoing war with Russia. However, it has also sparked controversy by publishing a “Hinduphobic” cartoon featuring the goddess Kali. The cartoon, which was published in a Ukrainian newspaper, shows Kali holding a missile and threatening to attack Russia. Many Indians have criticized the cartoon as insensitive and disrespectful to their religious beliefs. Despite this controversy, Ukraine and India continue to maintain close diplomatic ties.
