Calling her video 'vulgar', the foundation which claims to work for 'Sufism, peace and universal brotherhood' has threatened the singer to take down her video as it will flare 'communal tensions'. Mohapatra has sought legal help from the Mumbai Police.
Dear @MumbaiPolice the Madariya Sufi foundation claims to work for Sufism,peace & universal brotherhood in their threatening notice to me. I ask you & #India ,what about the ‘sisterhood’?Why is it that in this day & age the women expected to cover up, not sing or dance in public— SONA (@sonamohapatra) April 30, 2018
Writing to Mumbai Police on Twitter, Sona claimed, "I have received a threatening notice from the Madariya Sufi Foundation to remove my music video Tori Surat from all communication mediums. They claim that the video is vulgar, will flare communal tensions."
Respected @CPMumbaiPolice , I have been sent a threatening email notice from the Madariya Sufi Foundation demanding that I take down a music video that has been passed by the censor board of India & I would like to forward the same to your official email id along with my response— SONA (@sonamohapatra) April 30, 2018
The 41-year-old alleged that in a threatening notice sent to her by the Madariya Sufi Foundation, she has been called a 'regular offender' and one of her videos from 5 years back has also been targeted as she sung a Sufi song while 'exposing her body and playing westernised music'.
The Sufi Madariya foundation has also called me a ‘regular offender’ & says that they find another five year old Video of me singing a Sufiana Kalam - Piya Se Naina on coke studio insulting Islam because I’m ‘dressed exposing my body’ & playing westernised music. @MumbaiPolice— SONA (@sonamohapatra) April 30, 2018
Her video description 'earthy incarnations of the feminine divine' have also been termed as 'offensive' by the Foundation. Tori Surat is a song written by Ameer Khusrau and is a part of Sona Mohapatra's latest album Lal Pari Mastani.
The Madariya foundation along with the agreement of the Nizamuddin Dargah have an issue with the description of my Tori Surat music video, “earthy incarnations of the feminine Divine” & with “a sleeveless dress and body exposing dancers”. Basically with everything woman & free.— SONA (@sonamohapatra) April 30, 2018
Sona Mohapatra last created a buzz when she took a jibe at Salman Khan during his conviction in the Blackbuck Poaching case, following which she received rape, mutilation, death and acid attack threats but Mumbai Police didn't prove to be of much help then.
The last time I shared my phone number with the @MumbaiPolice was when I was getting rape, mutilation, death & acid attack threats during the Salman controversy. I am sorry to say that no real help or remedy came my way sir, @CPMumbaiPolice . Thankful I am safe despite the same.— SONA (@sonamohapatra) April 30, 2018
