The bad days of the Punjabi Film and Music Industry have been started a few months back when the Lawrence Bishnoi gang allegedly killed worldwide sensational singer Sidhu Moose Wala. From that day, a chain of black events had been started.
In those days, a name was very popular and several social media pages linked it with the death of Sidhu Moosewala. Later it was cleared that he wasn’t involved in that case. Yes, you are right, we are talking about Punjabi singer Mankirt Aulakh.
Now, a case is also filed against Punjabi singer Mankirt Aulakh, but it is not linked with the Sidhu Moosewala murder case. It is linked with his song ‘8 Raflaan’.
As per Tribune’s report, a Chandigarh-based lawyer, Sunil Kumar Mallan, has filed a civil suit against Mankirt Aulakh for allegedly using defamatory and derogatory comments against the legal profession.
The lawyer appealed to the court to take action against the singer and delete this song and its lyrics from all online streaming platforms.
If we listen to the lyrics carefully in the extended version of ‘8 Raflaan’, there are some lines that allegedly pointed towards the lawyers’ community.
Ve Chakki O Vakeel Firde, Vakeel Firde
Ni Oh Ta Sohniye Rafal De Khokhe
These lines mean anti-gangs hired lawyers against you. To this, Mankirt Aulakh replied, “The Lawyers are just only Fired Rounds of Rifle.”
You can listen to the song here:
The lawyer alleges that abusive insulting and un-parliamentary words have been used against the legal community in the song ‘8 Raflaan’.
The lawyer Sunil Kumar also said that he sent a legal notice to the label’s team and singer, but the song wasn’t removed from the streaming platforms.
He requested that the defendants be ordered to make joint or multiple payments to the plaintiff to collect the damages that the court had determined were due as a result of the defamation that the defendants had commenced.
