YouTube pulls down songs on farm protest

Kanwar Grewal’s Ailaan, Himmat Sandhu’s Asi vaddange removed



Bathinda, February 6

Singer Kanwar Grewal’s Ailaan, a song critical of the farm laws, has been pulled down by YouTube. Himmat Sandhu’s Asi vaddange has also been removed from the popular video-sharing platform. The central government has filed legal complaints against the songs.

Since September 25 last year, several Punjabi celebrities have come out in support of the agitation, and have released songs to that effect. Songs like Kisan anthem, Punjab by Sidhu Moosewala, Zaalam sarkaran by Gippy Grewal have helped keep the spirits high.

Another such hit is Asi vaddange by lyricist and singer Himmat Sandhu. The song was released four months ago in support of the farmers’ protest. The song talks about the government’s insensitivity towards farmers and warns it not to enter the fields, or it would be butchered.

The song had over 13 million views since its release and had become an anthem for the protest, and is often played by the youth on tractors marching towards the capital city. Another number which has been deleted is Ailaan. Kanwar Grewal has been actively participating in the stir and has emerged as a leader. His song has over one crore views. — TNS
