Chandigarh:

Expressing displeasure over use of vulgar language by rapper Honey Singh in his latest Punjabi song, Punjab State Women Commission chairperson Manisha Gulati demand setting up of a censor board for songs in Punjab.


Gulati said vulgar language used in the song ‘Makhna’ by Honey Singh crossed all boundaries. “I demand that a censor board be constituted for the songs on the line of the censor board for films. The song ‘Makhna’ sung by Honey Singh misguide the youngster with its lewd lyrics,” said Gulati.

Terming it as need of the hour, Gulati said that a censor board for songs will act as deterrent against such singers who were singing vulgar songs. She said that she would personally meet the chief minister to request him to form the censor board in Punjab.

Gulati also urged Punjabi singer Gurdas Mann to come forward and support the Punjab State Women Commission in its campaign against vulgar songs.

She said that Gurdas Mann should persuade the singers and producers not to produce vulgar songs in future. She said after the commission acted against Honey Singh, some of his supporters are threatening her of dire consequences. She said she had informed the police about this.

On July 9, Mohali police had registered an FIR against Honey Singh, following complaint lodged by the commission. With the help of Punjab government, Gulati said the commission would seek help of public prosecutors to cancel the bail application, which may be filed by the singer to stay his arrest
