On Sunday, Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra, known for his conservative stance, warned actor Sunny Leone and singers Shaarib and Toshi to apologize and withdraw their music video ‘Madhuban mein Radhika, jaise jungle me nache mor‘ within three days. The minister warned them that action would be taken against them if they did not comply.
I warn Sunny Leone ji, Shaarib and Toshi ji about the danger of hurting Hindu sentiments by posting videos like “Madhuban me Radhika nache.” We will take action against them if they do not remove the song within three days after apologising, Narottam Mishra said.
Mathura-based priests have already called for a ban on the video due to Sunny Leone’s objectionable dance on this iconic song. This is not the first opposition Sunny Leone will face. If the government does not ban the actress’ video album, we will take the issue to court, said Sant Naval Giri Maharaj of Vrindaban.
According to Narottam Mishra, the song hurts Hindu sentiment as they worship Maa Radha.
