A case was also registered in the Delhi Police for insulting the tricolor at the Red Fort.
Controversy is old
Sidhu Musewala has a long history of controversies. In May 2020, 5 policemen were also suspended due to one of his music videos. In the video, he was seen taking AK-47 gun training from Punjab Police personnel. In this case, a case was also registered under the Arms Act and the police started raiding to nab him, although he got bail before his arrest. He has always been in controversy for promoting gun culture in Punjab and also for his music videos that ‘motivated’ the youth to become gangsters. In 2020, Musewala’s name was also associated with Khalistanis because in one of his songs he also supported Khalistani separatist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. The song also featured a video of a staunch Khalistani supporter, Bhoopar Singh Balwala.
