Punjab Women Commission has demanded a ban against Honey Singh‘s latest song ‘Makhna’. The women commission has charged the singer for his vulgar lyrics against women in the said number. The Punjab police has booked the rapper and a case has been lodged at the Mataur police station in Mohali district of Punjab.
The chairperson of women panel Manisha Gulati had written a letter to the State Home Secretary, the Punjab Director General of Police and Inspector General of police (crime). They had demanded that appropriate action should be taken against the singer.
In her letter, Gulati also sought a ban on the song saying that the song is ‘indecent’ and bound to have a ‘negative effect’ on the society. She also asked the police tpo file a criminal case against the singer. She has also sought a status report by July 12.
