Hindu Extremists’ Fear: T-Series Get Atif Aslam’s Barishien Track Unregistered on YouTube
LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– Fearing the backlash of Hindu extremists in the backdrop of Pulawama attack, leading music company T-series got Atif Aslam’s Baarishein song unregistered a day after the track crossed over a million views in 5 hours of its release on YouTube.
The company has taken the decision after the film division of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) warned music label companies to stop working with Pakistani artists.
“We have verbally communicated to Indian music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to not work with Pakistani singers. These companies should stop it immediately or we will take action in our own style,” said MNS Chitrapat Sena head Amey Khopkar.
T-series had unveiled the song produced by Bhushan Kumar and composed/written by Arko on YouTube ahead of Valentine’s Day that crossed over a million views in 5 hours of its release. So far, the video has generated over 11 million view
The music video also featured Indian actress Nushrat Bharucha, who worked in Bollywood movies Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
Unlisting a video on YouTube means that the content will not come up in search results or on the channel. Only those who know the link can view it or share it with anyone.
Afterwards, Bhushan Kumar took to social networking site and posted, “The attack on CRPF soldiers in Kashmir is extremely disturbing to say the least. There is no glory in this. Right now one can only think of the families of the martyred and pray for those injured soldiers who are fighting for their lives.”
It is to be mentioned here that Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA) had banned Pakistani artists from the Bollywood following Uri attack. This came just before the release of Pakistani actors Fawad Khan’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and Mahira Khan’s ‘Raees’.
