    you have to read shiva puruna.. its very difficult to understand hinduism from outside.. because you need to read allthe 18 puranas,mahabarata and ramayana to derive right conclusions.. similarly vedas and upanishads meaning need to got from right persons.. then you can decide why its like that..for you its long way but what i heard from Bannaje govindacharya lecture is on daksha prajapati killing sage rishi gave curse to all the shaivites who consider Lord Shiva as ultimate God.. to take the Aghori life lifestyle,

    by eating flesh like dog, smering ashes from cremation ground.. the curse is still prevelant.Similarly from Lord shiva side they gave curse to those who ignore shiva in worship that they will not be able to control their sexual desire and fall off from spirtual path..

Aghoris are Kapalini of Shiva or Maa Durga. They are kind of Sadhus who live in the nature or love natural kind of life. Anciently it is told that Aghori were Purushas sent by Shiva on Earth to keep in custody and spread the Dharma. Maybe true or maybe not.

It is told that Shiva represents the first of the Aghori, when in Rudra form too.

What you have read on Google, not only is false This is a fake propaganda spreaded by Anti-Hindu people in Bhaarat.

They hate Aghoris because they will never let themselves be tempted by any kind of commodities.

This is not an opinion but the truth as it is.

In Internet you will hardly find any truth around them.

I suggest you to dig into Agamas and Kaula mantra oral initiations by non internet experiences.

Aghori refers to the most closest to Shiva Shakti devotees.

Other Shastras are https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iMJYAGH0qw0

This Shiva Stotram.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WgR2h3r4iRc महाकाल शिव अघोर मंत्र इस मंत्र का जाप करने से भोलेनाथ शिवजी आपकी रक्षा करेंगे | कोई भी दृष्ट शक्ति आपके पास नहीं आ सकती

Aghori exist since before the 4 Vedas has been composed.

Most of Sanatana Dharma is still kept orally.

Websites demoting and falsifying the things serve to political campaigns leaded from those people who want to superimpose by force other cults or sects or religions. Political ploys are making internet a place of fakehoods.

There are those who worship the God of the High Heavens. There are those who worship God in a statue or in an image. There are those who worship the formless God. There are those who worship God in their own hearts. There are those who believe that God is the mind. The Aghoris worship God in their body or in the body of the others. Because "I am God", Aham Brahmasmi.

Whoever Knows Shiva, Knows He is Aghori also.

    I already told you that the info that you have are allegations @Dark Knight. If you want to think badly about Aghori and Shiva you are free to think whatever you want. Think they are cannibals, think they are creepy. Maybe you are right. Maybe you are wrong. You can decide eventually to travel India to know this by yourself through a direct experience.

    Whatever your mind is in turmoil and agitation can not connect with reality. "Man changa katorie me Ganga". The mind of the meditator, yogini, is calm like a cup of the Gange river.
