Canadian Singer Shubh Lands In Controversy Ahead of Mumbai Concert
Canadian Punjabi singer Shubhneet Singh, widely known as Shubh, is facing controversy in the lead-up to his scheduled concert in Mumbai. Accusations have been raised by members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), alleging that the singer has expressed support for separatist Khalistani elements.
Shubh is set to perform in Mumbai from September 23 to 25 as part of the Cruise Control 4.0 event, which is organized aboard the Cordelia Cruise. Additionally, he has a three-month-long tour in India that includes performances in cities such as New Delhi, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad.
Recently, members of BJYM tore down posters promoting Shubh’s concert and claimed that the singer has shown sympathy towards Khalistani separatist movements. The controversy escalated when a social media post by Shubh depicting a distorted map of India, which omitted Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir, went viral. This post was shared at a time when the Punjab Police was actively searching for a fugitive named Amritpal Singh.
BJYM President Tajinder Singh Tiwana expressed strong opposition to Shubh’s concert, stating, “There is no place for Khalistanis, who pose a threat to the unity and integrity of India. We will not permit Canadian singer Shubh to perform in the revered land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mumbai. If appropriate action is not taken, the organizers will face our protest.” The BJYM has also called for the cancellation of Shubh’s shows in India.
Shubh is known for his popular songs, including “Elevated,” “OG,” and “Cheaques,” which have garnered widespread appreciation not only in India but around the world.
