Popular music platform ‘Gaana’ removes song ‘Sar Tan Se Juda’ after protest by devout Hindus

The outcome of the online campaign undertaken by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, as well as devout Hindus!

The provocative song ‘Gustakh-e-Nabi Ki Ek Saaz’ & ‘Sar Tan Se Juda’ was available on the Times Group’s popular ‘Gaana’ platform’s website and app. This song is sung by a Pakistani vocalist. In India, fanatics murder Hindus and use this phrase to spread terror. The same phrase was used to justify the murder of a Hindu called Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur. Due to this slogan, Hindus around the country are threatened to get beheaded.

When this was discovered that “Gana” had these provocative songs, the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti initiated an online campaign to demand its removal. A petition was sent to the Ministry of Home Affairs. As of now, over 500 people have sent the petition to the government through email. The hashtag #Boycott_GaanaApp trended at fifth place on Twitter on July 11th. Devout Hindus took part in this trend and criticized the song’s availability on ‘Gaana’ and other music platforms and demanded that it be removed.

As a result of this protest, the two platforms ‘Gana’ and ‘Hungama’ have removed the song from their respective websites. However, it is still available on Spotify, YouTube Music, Wink, and Apple Music.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti had made an appeal to devout Hindus to partake in this ‘online’ campaign in order to draw the government’s attention to these demands.
