Huskies are being adopted as Hindu gods of love by some people, who have said the dogs have a “dark” side.
The adoption of Huskies as Hindu deities of love is causing controversy, with some people saying the dogs should not be adopted as they are a “devil-hating” dog.
A local Hindu organisation has said that if adopted by a Hindu family, Huskies should be given a Hindu name and a Hindu religion.
According to the organisation, it is a common practice to give dogs a Hindu god name.
“Huskies are not bad dogs, but they do have a dark side.
They have been misused and used to hurt others,” said the group’s president Rajesh Chaudhary.
“If the dog is adopted by an owner who is not a Hindu, the dog should be called ‘Shiva’ (God),” he said.
While Hindu gods have been adopted by various religions, some are not in favour of adopting them.
In 2014, a man in Kerala was fined Rs 5 lakh by the Kerala High Court for adopting an “infidel” dog as a god dog.
