Before his show in Mumbai, Canadian Punjabi artist Shubh is being criticised for allegedly supporting Khalistani extremists.
Before his next concert in Mumbai, Canadian Punjabi musician Shubhneet Singh, also known as Shubh, is encountering criticism when Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activists tore down his posters and accused him of supporting separatist Khalistani forces.
From September 23 to 25, Shubh was slated to have a performance in Mumbai as part of the Cruise Control 4.0 gathering that was held on the Cordelia Cruise. The BJYM has objected, stating that the singer supported Khalistanis and uploaded an inaccurate map of Kashmir.
With songs like “Elevated,” “OG,” and “Cheaques,” which are well-liked not only in India but also internationally, Shubh, a rising star in the music business, has become more well-known. Even the former captain of Team India, Virat Kohli, danced to Shubh’s “Elevated” in a popular video, albeit he unfollowed the musician on Instagram later because to the uproar. Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have also stopped following the musician.
Shubh is currently on his three-month-long “Still Rollin India Tour,” which takes him to 12 significant Indian cities, including Bengaluru, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Mumbai, and others.
The BJYM’s protest actions in Mumbai may be replicated in other cities as a result of the indignation generated by Shubh’s social media post that included a distorted map of India without Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir. The Punjab Police were looking for a man called Amritpal Singh at the time the musician posted this picture on his Instagram stories. Following the arrest of many of Shubh’s supporters, Akali Dal voiced its worries regarding the incarceration of young children.
Tajinder Singh Tiwana, president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), declared: “There is no scope for Khalistanis who are the adversary of the integrity and unity of India. Shubh, a Canadian singer, will not be permitted to play in Mumbai, the blessed city of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The organisers will face our protest if suitable action is not taken.
In a letter to the Mumbai police commissioner, the BJYM demanded that Shubhneet Singh face heavy punishment and that all of his performances be cancelled. Additionally, they demanded that a FIR be filed against the rapper.
