Singer Sona Mohapatra claims Sufi Foundation threatened her over her latest video

Singer Sona Mohapatra had yesterday claimed that she has received a threating email from the Madariya Sufi Foundation asking her to remove her latest music video from all communication mediums. The Singer added in a series of tweets that the said foundation is calling her video vulgar and claiming that it will incite communal tensions.

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.


The Mumbai Police, taking cognisance of her tweet had offered help to the singer. The singer was asked details and was advised to visit the nearest police station to lodge a formal complaint.
