NEW DELHI: YouTuber Kamiya Jani finally broke the silence on the Jagannath temple darshan controversy that is brewing up on social media platforms. Earlier, the BJP found fault with Kamiya's darshan at the Puri Jagannath temple in Odisha.

BJP accused Kamiya, founder of the popular travel and food online channel ‘Curvy Tales’, of promoting beef eating culture. The saffron party also blamed Biju Janata Dal (BJD) leader VK Pandian for allowing the Youtuber, easy access to the temple breaching all norms.

The issue snowballed on the internet and thus has forced Kamiya to come up with a response.


'I went to seek the blessings of Lord Jagannath and shoot a video about the temple. I am a Hindu. I have never eaten beef, nor have I encouraged it.' - Kamiya says in the video shared.

The controversy erupted after the BJP unearthed a video of Kamiya having banana fritters and beef at a hotel in Kochi. The saffron party correlated this to her visit to the revered shrine of Puri Jagannath temple.

“I cover many such stories of local cuisines on my YouTube channel. It doesn’t mean that I have to taste them all.” Kamiya cleared the air.
