Punjabi Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has landed himself in trouble for allegedly using vulgar lyrics in his latest song ‘Makhna’. In the lyrics, he has called himself a womanizer. Taking a suo moto cognizance, Punjab State Women Commission Chairperson Manisha Gulati has written to the state home secretary, Punjab Director General of Police and Inspector General of Police (Crime) asking for appropriate action against the popular rapper.
Punjab’s women panel has asked the police to file an FIR against Honey Singh for using lewd lyrics against women in his song ‘Makhna’. They have further demanded the police to submit a status report in the matter by July 12. Miss Gulati, in a statement, said, “We have asked the police to register an FIR against the singer for using vulgar lyrics against women in his song ”Makhna”. She further said that such a vulgar song shall be banned from the state as it is “indecent and have a degrading influence on society”.
She also said, “A legal action and an inquiry is required to be initiated by the police on the matter as the song readied by T-series chairman Bhushan Kumar and singers Honey Singh and Neha Kakkar uses vulgar words against women.”
The song was released by T-series on Dec 21, 2018.
This isn’t the first time that Honey Singh has been accused of using vulgar lyrics in his song. Back in 2013, he was involved in a controversy over the lyrics of his song ‘Main Hoon Balatkari’ (I am a rapist). Punjab and Haryana High Court had ordered the Punjab government to file a case against the rapper for singing vulgar songs.
