Singer Sona Mahapatra recives threat from ‘Sufi Foundation’,tweets to Mumbai police

Mumbai: Singer Sona Mahapatra on Monday in a series of tweet alleged the Madiyar Sufi Foundation of sending her a notice and threats to remove her latest video from all communication channels on the grounds that it did not comply with the Sufi format.

The singer has filed a written complaint against the foundation in the police, she did not file an FIR.

Mahapatra tweeted that the foundation termed her video, Tori Surat, obscene and objectionable. She alleged after giving the notice, they did not wait for her response and sent her threats through email. She claimed the foundation stated that her other video that came out five years ago, too, was inappropriate.

“Mohapatra has submitted an application at Santacruz police station that the contention in the email received by her is incorrect. She said she has a certificate from the CBFC board for the content of her music video. The application is on record with the police,” said Paramjit Singh Dahiya, deputy commissioner of police, Zone 9.

Responding to the allegations by Sona Mahapatra, the foundation said, “We will reply to the Mumbai police when they approach us.”
