Updated: As Sidhu Moose Wala landed in Italy, it became evident that his show in Italy would not be taking place. The reason the show the got cancelled was due to people saying they would be protesting at the venue if he performed. The Italian police were informed of these threats. It was then decided that the show would not go ahead.
Sidhu Moose Wala then posted the video below, which is heartfelt and passionate. His honesty and the subjects he raises are very thought-provoking. Why are people going after his parents ? Their 5 minutes of fame is reliant on Sidhu Moose Wala which is a shame.
Sidhu Moose Wala went live on Instagram this morning to apologise for hurting Sikh sentiments. Sidhu also went on to explain his reasoning for his wording of a verse on what was to be his forthcoming song ‘Jatti Jeone Morh Wargi’.
The song Jatti Jeone Morh Wari was from a forthcoming film called Ardab Mutiyaran. A leaked version of a song by Sidhu Moose Wala for the film has been doing the rounds for a few days and has courted controversy. The controversial verse mentions the Khanda and Mai Bhago Ji.
The song ‘Jatti Jeone Morh Wargi’ is here in full and below is the apology and explanation from Sidhu Moose Wala about the song.
In a statement issued on Friday at the party headquarters, SAD’s senior vice president and spokesperson Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema said that Sidhu Moosewala has committed a heinous crime by inappropriately mentioning the great Sikh woman Mai Bhago, who was known for rallying 40 Sikhs (Chali Mukte) and bringing them back to fight after they abandoned Shri Guru Gobind Singh at the siege of Anandpur Sahib in his utterly obscene song.”
It clearly shows that the singer and his promoters have no knowledge or respect for the great Sikh martyrs as they were just using the pious figures of the glorious Sikh history for their petty commercial gains,” he lamented, adding that a criminal case must be registered against all of them and they should be arrested.
Dr Cheema also requested the Punjab government to issue appropriate directions to the people working in the entertainment industry about the portraying of Sikh martyrs and warriors in the songs, videos, and films, so that this would not happen in the future.
