As per the media reports, the two were charged with violating IPC sections 188 (disobedience to order duly issued by public servant), 294 (obscene acts and songs), and 504 (intentional insult with purpose to provoke breach of the peace) at the Raikot Sadar police station. Moreover, this is seen as a part of Bhagwant Mann government’s action against the promotion of gun culture in songs and other promotional media.
Notably, the government of Punjab recently outlawed the usage and display of firearms in public and on social media, as well as the endorsement of gun culture in songs and other popular media. The opposition in Punjab had been continuously demanding the state government to take strict action against the increasing number of shootouts in the state.
Punjab experienced a number of gang wars and shootout incidents in recent months, including the murder of singer and politician Sidhu Moose Wala. Moreover, numerous questions had been raised against the Mann government over Punjab’s law and order situation. However, not just the ban on promotion of gun culture, the state government will also review the weapon licences over the next three months in an effort to ensure that the implementation of the ban is flawless.
