Honey Singh New Year Controversy
Rapper Honey Singh, who was forced to cancel his scheduled New Year’s Eve show following protests in the backdrop of Delhi gang rape incident, today sought to wash his hands off the controversy triggered by offensive lyrics in some of his songs.
NGO HELP on Tuesday submitted a complaint to the senior superintendent of police against him over alleged vulgar lyrics of his song. The FIR was registered under sections 292, 293 and 294 of the IPC that are related to obscenity offences. NGO president Parwinder Singh Kittna said the songs of rapper Honey Singh are vulgar and such songs can act as a catalyst in crime against women. He said the song is available on YouTube and police should remove its video from the website as soon as possible.
His song Main Hun Balatkari (I am a rapist), which he now claims he hasn’t sung, has come in for severe criticism. The lyrics have been termed offensive towards women by activists, who have started an online campaign against Singh. Singh’s detractors say that some of his songs are misogynistic and promote a permissive and casual attitude to sexual assault
As per Honney Singh’s Manager “We did not cancel the show because of this petition and FIR. We cancelled it in the wake of Delhi gang rape issue. This is not the first concert we are cancelling in Delhi after that horrific incident. We had also cancelled our much publicised December 25 event,”.
This is not the first incident that Honey Singh involved in controversy for vulgar songs. In recent times Honey Singh was in news for controversy with Jassi Jasraj. Inspite all this he is making new songs day by day , which are super duper hit in market. Looks like many people like his songs, which encourage him to repeat such act again and again.
