Petition Against Rapper Honey Singh for Derogatory Lyrics

In the wake of the recent outrage against Delhi gang-rape, a group of social activists have filed an online petition protesting against a performance of rapper Honey Singh, alleging his lyrics were offensive towards women.

The petition filed by one Kalpana Misra via Change.Org has appealed for a ban on the Punjabi rapper's New Year's eve performance at a Gurgaon hotel today.

"These pornographic lyrics are unacceptable and it is because of women-hating sentiments like these that men think that it's fine to do what they did on that bus, that December night in Delhi.

"Let's put a stop to these subversive lyrics that infiltrate the minds of people who don't know better and who then justify to themselves the rightness of a crime that harms another human being, sometimes so severely that they lose their lives," the petition stated.

When contacted, the Bristol hotel said they will go ahead with the performance as scheduled and that they were not aware of any such petition.

The rapper was unavailable for comment.

Honey Singh raps mostly in a mix of English and Punjabi and has lent his voice to recent Bollywood films like 'Khiladi 786', 'Cocktail' and 'Luv Shuv Te Chicken Khurana'.

Outrage against the rapper and his derogatory songs have been pouring on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter for the past few days.

 Such cancellations reflect 'sanghi' mentality and are against modernity and progress. 

If we are to progress we must have as much 'vulgarity' as possible. Vulgarity is our birtright and market is our GOD.

Pradip Singh, STAFFORD
