Honey Singh’s Lyrics Are Against Women’s Dignity: Panel Chief
Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has again landed himself in a soup as Punjab Women's State Commission has sent him a notice for his latest music video 'Makhna', in which he has allegedly again used vulgar lyrics. Manisha Gulati, chairperson of the commission, said Honey Singh should go out of the country if he can’t stop using vulgar lyrics.
“People from other countries chant ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, while Honey Singh sometimes uses words like balaatkari (rapist) and sometimes words that go against the dignity of women. If he can’t stop using these lyrics, he should go to some foreign country where this is allowed”, Gulati added.
Earlier, Manisha Gulati took a suo moto action and wrote to the Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Punjab DGP, and IG, Crime, Punjab. She has asked them to take action on the matter especially for using lyrics like ‘Mein hoon womaniser’ and ‘Silicon wali ladkiyon ko mein pakadta nahi’.
Manisha, in her complaint, added, “This song is getting viral on social media and its video is also objectionable. Hence, we have taken a serious note of it and asked the police to register an FIR against the singer and company owner. We want that this song be banned and hence we have also raised our objection with the censor board. We cannot allow songs with such obscene words to be allowed to propagate further. We will also meet the state government officials to get the song banned at least from Punjab.”
DGP Dinkar Gupta said that they were legally examining the matter. “If there is a violation, due legal action will be followed”, he said.
