Here is the song for which rapper Honey Singh has been booked by Punjab police

In 2013, the Punjabi rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh was involved in a controversy over the lyrics of his song 'Main Hoon Balatkari' (I am a rapist)

Punjabi rapper, Honey Singh has got into trouble over the lyrics of his latest song ‘Makhna’. The rapper had unveiled, what he called his come back song, in December 2018. The song was composed, written and sung by him.

The Punjab police have booked the rapper under IPC sections, 294 (obscene acts) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), under Information Technology Act and section 6 of the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, after it received a complaint by the state women’s commission chief, Manisha Gulati.

The case has been registered at the Mataur police station in Punjab’s Mohali district.

T-series owner and music producer Bhushan Kumar, who produced Singh’s latest album, along with Neha Kakkar, who has sung the song have also been booked.

Gulati had asked the police to file a criminal case against the Bollywood singer and sought a status report by July 12.

Gulati had written to the Additional Chief Secretary (Home and Justice), state Director General of police (DGP) and the Inspector General of police (crime), over the lyrics of Honey Singh’s song ‘Makhna’, seeking a ban on the song saying that the song is “indecent” and bound to have a “negative effect” on the society.

The song which is breaking the internet with over 200 million views in the last six months has a verse which reads:

“मैं और मेरे कलाकार सब बैठ के करें chill
पर मैं हूँ womanizer, मुझे अकेले में मत मिल
SiliconE वाली लड़की को मैं पकड़ता नही
Brown girl से मेरा दिल भरता नही
गोरी-गोरी skin के लिए मैं मरता नही
क्योंकि मैं हूँ शेर, घास चरता नही “

Honey Singh uses lyrics like “Mein Hoon womaniser (I am a womaniser)” and makes lewd remarks like “Silicone wali ladki” (referring to women who opt for artificial breast implants). He further makes racists remarks by using words like “brown girl” and “Gori-Gori skin” (fair-fair skin) in his song, which probably prompted the state women’s commission chief, Manisha Gulati, to seek a ban on the song and file a criminal case against the rapper.

Senior Superintendent of Police Harcharan Bhullar told reporters that Honey Singh’s song, has contents which are “objectionable” and the police, taking suo moto cognizance, would summon the rapper soon.
