Singer and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has been getting a lot of criticism lately for the use of vulgar words in his song Makhna. People from all over, especially in Punjab, have been appealing against the song and the singer.
However, the latest is that the Punjab Police has booked Honey Singh for lewd lyrics in his song. The action was taken after an FIR was filed against the singer and also a written complaint by the Punjab Women Commission to the Punjab government and Director General of Police demanding action against him.
Talking to IANS, the chairperson of the Punjab Women Commission, Manisha Gulati slammed Honey Singh and said that the lyrics of his song are irreverent towards women and demeans them. “Honey Singh has used extremely vulgar language in his song. The words used are absolutely irreverent for a woman that’s why we want strict action against Honey Singh and Bhushan Kumar (Managing Director of T-Series). We have written a letter to the Punjab government, Director General of Police and home secretary to take action against this song. This is also to set a benchmark so that from now onwards singers or songwriters don’t make songs that disrespect women. The Central government and the Censor board should also intervene and set some kind of bar for musicians,” said Manisha Gulati.
Another Punjabi singer Jasbir Jassi had earlier slammed Honey Singh for promoting vulgar content and had said that Honey should be banned and punished.
