Political analyst Shehzad Poonawalla has strongly objected to international singer Rihanna’s new post on social media that she shared on Tuesday in aid of a brand shoot. In the picture that she tweeted, Rihanna posed topless and was seen wearing a necklace that featured a Lord Ganesha pendant.
Rihanna’s picture has enraged Twitter with several sections of the internet censuring her for “hurting sentiments” with her post. Shehzad Poonawalla added that the image in question has “hurt” his “feelings and sentiments” as well.
“I am a Muslim but as an Indian and Maharashtrian, I love Lord Ganesha ji – sorry this misuse of Ganesha ji image hurts my feelings and sentiments – will Rihanna Backers in India accept this also? #GaneshaInsulted,” Shehzad Poonawalla said in his post.
