The statement that caused all the ruckus was, “eh mere Punjabi bhain bhraawan layi, mere desh da jhanda laike khadi aa kudi, eh mere desh layi, negativity ton bacho, music saareyan da saanjha, [This girl is carrying my nation’s flag, this is for my nation and everyone. Music belongs to all, do not use it to spread hate], as per DNA. It was twisted by some portals as per reports, and the tweaked statement indicated that Diljit Dosanjh had disrespected the country’s flag. The distorted statement, as per some portals, was, “Diljit Dosanjh accused a girl of inciting hatred by waving the Indian flag during a music performance in America. He said, “Don’t spread hate, music belongs to everyone, not one country @diljitdosanjh Do you have no respect for the Indian tricolor?”
The statement was posted by a Twitter account called PunFact. The singer retweeted a post that slammed the Twitter account for spreading fake news.
It would be better if @pun_fact starts posting complete video.@diljitdosanjh dedicated this concert to India and Punjab.
