12-year-Old Boy With Actual Tail Treated as a God

12-year-old boy with tail

Ke$ha told the British publication Heat that she was born with the tail but that it was removed before she could shake it.

"I had a tail when I was born. It was a tiny tail, about a quarter of an inch, then they chopped it off and stole my tail," she told Heat. "That was when I was little. I'm really sad about that story."

A 12-year-old boy in Chandigarh, India has what looks like a 7-inch tail sticking out of his back.

Arshid Ali Khan is worshipped as the living incarnation of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman, and has faithful followers who refer to him as "Balaji," Nairaland.com reported.

Doctors have a different, less spiritual, theory: The appendage is actually meningocele, a rare form of spina bifida that causes the spine to grow abnormally.

As a result, Arshid Ali Khan is worshipped as the living incarnation of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman, and has faithful followers who refer to him as "Balaji," Nairaland.com reported.

Although medical experts believe Khan should have the "tail" removed because he risks further medical problems, he is philosophically opposed to it.

“I love my tail. It’s a gift from God. It’s unusual, but people respect me and bow before me because of it," he said, according to the Sun. "I feel special.”
