You may recall a few months ago Sidhu Moose Wala’s mother was elected Sarpanch of Moosa Village in Punjab, now as expected people are targeting her son’s lyrical content via his mother and her new position as Sarpanch.
Over the last few days two letters have been made public and shared by Ghaint Punjab, one from Pandit Rao Dhanevar to Charan Kaur ( Sidhu Moose Wala’s mother) and a hand written response to the letter from Charan Kaur to Pandit Rao. In Charan Kaur’s response letter, she has stated that her son will not sing songs that have provocative lyrics.
In the original letter to Sidhu Moose Wala’s mother filed by Professor Dhanevar he raised the following questions:
Why does the son of Moosa village’s sarpanch sing provocative/illegal songs?
Sidhu Moosewala had sung Jatt us pind nu belong karda, are Moosa pind’s lads like this?
Is the sarpanch of Moosa village taking any action against such provocative songs?
As the sarpanch of Moosa village, Charan Kaur can instruct her son to not sing such songs then why isn’t she doing so?
Why doesn’t the sarpanch of Moosa village ask her son to get his provocative songs removed from YouTube?
Now, the strange thing about the questions raised is that the Professor has not sent any letters like this to other villages were prominent singers have ties to village Sarpanch’s, is this just a case of the professor wanting to score some cheap points by going after Sidhu’s mother?
Charan Kaur made her response public and in the letter she mentions ‘’Jatt Us Pind Nu Belong Karda’ was sung by her son nearly one and a half years before she was elected as the Sarpanch. Since she was elected Sarpanch, Charan Kaur said she has constantly asked him to refrain from singing such songs.
Not only this, she has also mentions that after the election, neither has her son sung any objectionable songs nor will he be singing any in the future. Another highlight of the letter that has grabbed peoples attention, is the last line that reads as “He will sing Baba Nanak’s songs”.
This apology letter was received by Pandit Rao today and he took to his social media to share it while quoting it as “ਸਿੱਧੂ ਮੂਸੇ ਵਾਲਾ ਦੀ ਮਾਤਾ ਚਰਨ ਕੌਰ ਨੇ ਕਿਹਾ ਹੈ ਕੀ ਅੱਗੇ ਤੋ ਸਿੱਧੂ ਮੂਸੇ ਵਾਲਾ ਭੜਕਾਊ ਗਾਣੇ ਨਹੀ ਗਾਉਣਗੇ… Baba Nanak di Bani gaawugaa Sidhu Mosewala..” It’s quite evident that Pandit Rao is resolute to get the Punjabi singers out of the guns, gangsters, alcohol, and other objectionable culture and also, seeks to lead them into singing more dignified Punjabi songs. However, his move made him receive a lot of flak from many Punjabi singers who have been earning scores by singing such controversial songs.
