Canberra: Indian origin pop singer Aiysha Saagar has angered the Indian community in Australia. However, the community is a divided lot. Aiysha was selected as the Gold Coast Goodwill Ambassador by the eastern city’s Mayor Tom Tate, and she is set to travel to India to promote the tourist city to Indians.
However, her pictures on her website where she poses on the Surfers Paradise beach with the Australian flag pained on her body has miffed a section of the Indian community here, according to a local news report.
Event coordinator of Queensland-based Indian Associations Neeraj Narayan said that “more than 60 per cent of India was still conservative and Saagar’s partial nudity would reflect badly on Gold Coast’s image”. “They may not see the appeal in coming to Australia if that’s the image she is promoting,” Narayan was quoted as saying.
However, Sagaar said: “The whole point of these photos is to promote me as an artist.”
