While the Punjabi Music fans are busy because Karan Aujla’s BTFU is finally out, one of the songs from the album has raised legal troubles for the singer. One of the biggest artists in the Punjabi Music Industry, Karan Aujla has fallen into legal troubles due to his song ‘Sharab’ with Harjit Harman.
Written by Karan Aujla featuring Harjit Harman, the song Sharab has been accused of making offensive remarks against women in general. Panditrao Dharennavar, a resident of Chandigarh, who became very famous for carrying around hoardings with social messages, has sent a legal notice to the Police Commissioner, Jalandhar and Senior Police Captain, Patiala against Karan Aujla, Harjit Harman and Music Label Speed Records, through which the album is released.
In the complaint, Panditrao calls out the song’s language for being extremely inappropriate as it compares women to drugs, alcohol and guns, which is very disrespectful. Manisha Gulati, the chairperson of Punjab State Women Commission, summoned the owner of Speed Records, Karan Aujla and Harjit Harman on 22 September 2021 at 12:00 pm. They are required to appear at the Punjab State Women Commission, S.A.S. Nagar for the legal proceedings.
Chairperson Manisha Gulati also took it to social media to share a copy of the notice to let the public know about the legal action. She also criticised Karan Aujla and Harjit Harman for making obscene remarks against women in their latest song and said that the singers along with the company, Speed Records, have been called for a personal hearing.
Even before the release of the song or the album, Panditrao had taken it to himself to criticise Harjit Harman for working with Karan Aujla in an objectionable song like ‘Sharab’. Now, he’s decided to fight the battle legally. The hearing is scheduled for 22 September and further updates will be given on the same date.
