The latest raunchy yoga video of Playboy model Sara Jean Underwood has caused uproar in India. In the video, Sara is seen performing various asans while naked.
The racy video is available on the playboy website but the Indian community has asked the mogul Hugh Hefner firm to remove the video from the site and related products.
The president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, Rajan Zed was quoted as saying, “Hindus are upset over what is the misuse of the revered system of yoga by Playboy for mercantile greed and we are urging the organisation to withdraw all its yoga-related products.”
“Yoga is one of the six systems of orthodox Hindu philosophy and it is highly revered in Hinduism. It is actually a serious mental and physical discipline by means of which the human soul can unite with the universal soul.”
“Sara Jean Underwood wants you to gain an intimate understanding of her asanas, the various postures and positions practised in yoga, suggesting the next best thing to actually doing them in person is watching these sexy nude videos that are designed to raise your heart rate,” he said.
“Playboy should not attempt to distort the esteemed yoga tradition as it hurts the devotees of yoga,” Zed added.
