The singer further tweeted that she had been called a ‘regular offender’ by the organisation and told her that in one of her older videos she was insulting Islam as she was ‘exposing her body’ and playing westernised music. She added that the foundation, along with the Nizamuddin Dargah has an issue with her recent video ‘Tori Surat’ alleging that they find it offensive because she is seen in the video wearing a sleeveless dress accompanied by dancers who were ‘body exposing’ according to the threat notice.
