Punjab State Commission for Women chairperson Manisha Gulati on Wednesday claimed that she had been receiving threat calls and abusive messages on social media after she lodged a complaint against rapper Honey Singh for using “lewd” lyrics in his song.

Honey Singh and music producer Bhushan Kumar have been booked on the charge of using vulgar lyrics in a song, “Makhna”.

“I have been receiving threat calls and getting abusive messages on my Twitter handle for lodging a complaint against Yo Yo Honey Singh. I am not scared of anyone. I will continue to raise my voice on such issues,” Manisha said.

She said she had reported the matter to the police for further action. She said she had also urged the police to arrest Honey Singh as early as possible.

“It is a lesson for singers like Honey Singh who use objectionable words against women,” she said, adding that the women panel would now keep a watch on other singers as well to ensure that vulgar lyrics did not find their way to songs.

“If he (Honey Singh) applies for the bail, we will oppose it,” she said. Meanwhile, Manisha demanded that a censor board be constituted for the songs on lines of films.
