YAD: Singer arrested for writing ‘kisan anthem’

Shree Brar

Patiala, January 6

The Youth Akali Dal (YAD) today alleged that Punjabi singer and lyricist Shree Brar was arrested and tortured by the state government on the directions of Union Home Minister Amit Shah as a punishment for writing the “kisan anthem”.

Terming the arrest, torture and subsequent isolation of Shree Brar by the Patiala police as vindictive and against policing norms, YAD president Parambans Singh Romana said the singer had given a major boost to the “kisan andolan” by penning a song that had become

its unofficial anthem.

“The song “Swaraja piche barigate paaye hoi ne” inspired lakhs of people to join the movement, which was not liked by the Centre as well as the Home Ministry. This is why Shree Brar has been singled out for punishment with relation to another song he wrote a month ago,” Romana said. — TNS
