Noida Man Brings Pet Dog To Kedarnath Yatra, Priests Disappointed

For pet owners, pets are like their own children. Therefore, if they seek the Almighty’s blessings for themselves, they do the same for their children as well. But a recent incident in Kedarnath did not get along well with the temple committee members. Rohan Tyagi of Noida recently visited the Kedarnath Temple in Uttarakhand and also took his dog Nawab on the road. Nawab is a four and a half year old Siberian Husky who is also curiously known as India’s first paragliding pet of India. On Nawab’s Instagram page, a video was uploaded in which he was touched the feet of Nandi, the sacred bull of Lord Shiva. He also received a tilak from the priest. The temple committee did not take the incident on a positive note, saying it hurt the pilgrims’ religious feelings. The committee also filed a FIR against the incident.

While some people were unhappy with the incident, many others showed their support for Nawab and Rohan. A social media user commented: “Even dogs are children of God, they have every right to worship God.” Another wrote: “Sorry but I may be the purest soul I’ve ever visited there”. Yet another commented: “We support you, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.” The hashtag #wesupportnawab is also going viral on the internet.

Nawab is an influential pet with over 75,600 followers on Instagram. He was also the first pet in India to have a paragliding experience with his owner.
