The Punjab State Women Commission has sought action against rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh for allegedly using vulgar lyrics against women in a recent song. Taking suo motu cognizance, chairperson of the women panel Manisha Gulati has written to the state home secretary, Punjab Director General of Police and Inspector General of Police (Crime), recommending appropriate action against the singer.
"We have asked the police to register an FIR against the singer for using vulgar lyrics against women in his song 'Makhna'," Gulati said. The women panel has asked the police to submit a status report in the matter by July 12, she said. Gulati said the song with the objectionable lyrics against women should be banned in the state.
The shocking and disgusting lyrics refer to girls as 'silicon', 'brown', and 'gori gori'.
"Mein aur mere kalakar, Sab baith ke kare chill, Par main hoon womanizer, Mujhe akele mein mat mill, Silicon wali ladki ko mein, pakadta nahi", read an excerpt from his pathetic lyrics.
The rapper in 2013 was involved in a controversy over the lyrics of his song “Main hoon balatkari (I am a rapist)”. Even the Punjab and Haryana High Court had ordered the Punjab government to file a case against Honey Singh for singing vulgar songs. It had also said singers like Honey Singh should be boycotted, as “his songs make us hang our heads in shame”.
Singh had a busy and successful 2018 with chartbusters such as Dil Chori, Chote Chote Peg, Rangtaari, This Party is over now, along with his single 'Urvashi' featuring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani.
On the work front, Yo Yo Honey Singh announced his World Tour on social media in the month of February. He shared a video of the rehearsals which he captioned "Live concerts rehearsals begins now. We Coming !!! Are u Ready ??? Tours starting very soon @itsaslialfaaz @singhstamusic @hommiedilliwala
