Biden & Harris issue happy Navratri greetings | Diya TV News

WILMINGTON, Delaware (Diya TV) — Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris continue their efforts to court the Indian diaspora, as each issued Navratri greetings. Biden & his wife Jill sent their best wishes, tweeting “may good once again triumph over evil.” And Harris and her husband Doug added “may this holiday serve as an inspiration to…build a more inclusive and just America.”

But at the same time, Harris’ niece Meena deleted an image she posted of her auntie being depicted as Goddess Durga, which led to a petition asking her to apologize. Meena Harris is a lawyer, entrepreneur and daughter of Kamala Harris’ sister, Maya. The image she posted photoshopped Kamala Harris’ face onto Hindu Goddess Durga, showing Joe Biden as her lion and President Trump as a demon she slays.
