Perry, 32, was raised in a conservative Christian household and both of her parents are pastors.

However, she has said on numerous occasions that she does not identify with any religion.

"I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God," she told Marie Claire in 2013.

"'I pray all the time - for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it," she continued.

In 2010, she married her former husband Russell Brand in a lavish Hindu ceremony in India.

The couple reportedly stayed at the Oberoi Vanyavilas hotel during their wedding trip and posted an image together outside of the Taj Mahal during the same trip.

They later divorced in 2012.

Despite the users who told the "Roar" singer her post was "offensive" and "ignorant," others felt they were just being harsh.

"Well im an indian and Hindu also.this is not offensive at all.some people get offended so easily," a use wrote.

Another user weighed in, in hopes of steering the conversation in a more positive direction: "Why is everyone making such a big deal out of this..... Shouldn't we be proud that our culture is recognized (sp) around the world? Instead, all we Indians here are fighting amongst ourselves....Unity in diversity people.... Peace ?"
