Renowned singer Sona Mohapatra who often makes headlines for her unapologetic statements and opinions on the nationally relevant issues has allegedly been threatened by Madariya Sufi Foundation over her latest music video Tori Surat. 

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.

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."

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'.

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.

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.
