However, this did not go down well with many of her Indian followers. “Don’t disrespect Indian Goddess… this can’t be called as mood.. have some values. Just delete this picture. (No hate for her),” one person wrote.

Another said it was not a good idea for the singer to use a religious image to represent her mood.

“This is a little offensive to the Hindu community because the meaning behind this photo and god symbolizes something different. Not sure what you intended it for, but its supposed to symbolize strength and courage,” an Instagram user posted.
