In religion and mythology
The third avatara of Lord Vishnu was varaha, a boar. Varaha is generally depicted having a boar's head on a human body.
Varahi is the Hindu Goddess Durga in the form of a wild boar. She is regarded as the consort of varaha and one of the saptamatrikas (seven fierce forms of Goddess Devi).
Consumption of pig meat – pork - is forbidden or considered haraam by muslims . A vast majority of Hindus also avoid pig meat although it is beef (cow meat) that is forbidden by the religion.
