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.
Speaking exclusively to Republic TV, the Chairperson of Women Panel said that strict action will be taken against singer Honey Singh over his disgustingly sexist lyrics.
We have a lot of responsibilities, we have a lot of work, and at the time we were not able to file a complaint, but "dere aye durust aaye", is the policy we have followed, At the time we had not realized, and we were not able to serve the notice to them. But now we have followed it up, and now strict action will be taken against them.
No, we have not done so, For us, our law itself is 'personal', and we have spoken to the Punjab government to take strict action against the matter. We are going to file an FIR and get his song banned. Because he has used terrible vulgar language. We talk about women rights and empowerment, and on the other hand, Honey Singh is using such distasteful language for addressing the gender.
We have contacted a brilliant officer here in Punjab, and we have registered a complaint with him and an inquiry is underway
This happens because the government has not taken any initiative or steps in order to ban vulgar language in songs. The Censor Board should also pitch in, and limitations should be addressed. The dignity of either gender should not be compromised and we have taken this initiative and hence we will not keep quiet.
