A Muslim group demanded a ban on Priya Prakash Varrier’s song, saying it hurt their religious sentiments.
It’s been only few days Priya Prakash Varrier’s “Manikyala Malaraya Poovi” song from the upcoming Malayalam film, “Oru Adaar Love”, went viral because for her expressive eyes and an innocent chemistry shown between a teenage couple. Hyderabad youth has raised an objection and registered a police complaint against the ‘expression’ of Priya Prakash Varrier’s viral song from the movie Odu Adaar Love.
Hyderabad youth claims that the lyrics of the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi ’ is hurting their religious sentiments. Muslim youth from old city have filed a written complaint with the Falaknuma police, stating that the picturisation of the song is hurting Muslim community. The lyrics of the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’, when translated into English, is blasphemy and insults the Prophet.
The complaint is filed at the Falaknuma police, signed by 57 people along with their contact details and address. The complaint reads, “It is not acceptable for us to see a romantic song picturised on some actors with lyrics of the song linked to the Prophet.”
Complainant Mohammed Abdul Muqeeth Khan, told Mirror, “I don’t want publicity. I am an ordinary student who is not willing to take to streets or mobilise people for a protest. I went through the lyrics yesterday on YouTube as the song became very popular. Then, I tried to understand it through Google translation, and found that the song takes the name of our Prophet’s wife, Khadijah Bibi. And I felt I should raise objection to it.”
Police have registered the complaint against the movie director Omar Lulu and others, assuring they will examine the content of the song.
