Sona Mohapatra writes to Mumbai Police for help from Sufi Foundation, Javed Akhtar stands for support

Popular singer Sona Mohapatra has found herself in the middle of a problem yet again. The lady has received warnings from Madiyar Sufi Foundation, who threatens her to remove her latest video from all communication channels on the grounds as it did not comply with the Sufi format.

In a series of tweets written by Sona Mohapatra to Mumbai Police about the threats regarding her latest song ‘Tori Surat’, the singer writes, “Dear @MumbaiPolice I have received a threatening notice from the Madariya Sufi Foundation to remove my music video Tori Surat from all communication mediums. They claim that the video is vulgar,will flare communal tensions.I need to know whom to write in my response to at ur end.”

In later tweets, she gave out more details about the threats and described what the Foundation is up to. ‘Tori Surat’ s a part of Sona’s latest project called Lal Pari Mastani. The Sufi love song was penned by Ameer Khusrau for his beloved Nizammudin Auliya.

While the singer has given a written application to the police, she did not file an FIR

When HT spoke to Sona, she was at the Santacruz police station. “I am just happy the police responded immediately because I did not know who to go to and it is very intimidating to receive a threatening message… The police have promised to talk to the foundation and my lawyers will respond to their notice.”

Not just Mumbai Police but after learning about the incident, another Bollywood singer and writer Javed Akhtar raised his voice to support the singer. He wrote on his twitter, “In strongest possible words I condemn those regressive and reactionary organisations who are threatening Sona Mahapatra for making a music video of a Amir Khusrau ‘ Geet . These mullas should know that Amir Khusrau belongs to every Indian. He is not your property."
