People extend support to Husky 'Nawab' and his owner after furore over their Kedarnath visit
A religious trip that was supposed to be special for a Noida couple and their pet 'Nawab' has turned into a nightmare for them. Nawab's owner Rohan Tyagi has been reportedly booked for allegedly hurting religious sentiments by making his pet dog touch an idol at the Kedarnath shrine.
After the furor and the debate that began after news of his FIR, Rohan shared a post saying he's been taking his pet dog to temples for the past four years.
After the videos went viral, the Badrinath-Kedarnath temple committee on Wednesday demanded stern action against the devotee, saying these visuals have hurt the religious sentiments of people, reported news agency PTI.
Mr. Tyagi said Nawab has been visiting temples across India for the past four years, "so why this drama now?" He shared an elaborate post, "Why is this drama happening now suddenly?" He also shared an old video of his dog at Badrinath and Tungnath.
#MakeIndiaPetFriendly message was shared from Nawab's Instagram account, where they shared an update on the fiasco.
Support has been pouring in large numbers for Nawab and Rohan.
