Topless Rihanna clicks picture with Ganesha

This is the second time within days that the singer has stoked a controversy in India.

Barbadian pop star Rihanna, who is already in headlines for her tweet backing the farmer protests, came under fresh fire on Twitter on Tuesday as she took her social media handles to post a topless image where she is seen wearing a Lord Ganesha pendant.


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), among others, heavily criticised Rihanna for her post and also filed police complaints against the two social media giants in Delhi and Mumbai and alleged that the photo had “hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus”.


This is the second time within days that the singer has stoked a controversy in India. Earlier this month, she became one of the first international celebrities to tweet about the farmers’ protest and the internet restrictions imposed near agitation sites in the wake of the 26 January violence in Delhi.
