Sidhu Moose Wala’s latest SYL song removed from YouTube
Sidhu Moose Wala’s last song released after his assassination, SYL, the title referring to the Sutlej-Yamuna Link channel, has now been removed from the YouTube video streaming platform.
The song about water issue in Punjab, talks about the Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal, which has been a bone of contention between Punjab and Haryana for quite a long time.
Composed by Sidhu Moose Wala before being shot on May 29, the clip was released by producer MXRCI on Friday June 23 on YouTube. However, clicking on the video link now displays a message saying, “This content is not available on this country’s domain due to a legal complaint from the government.”
The song is about undivided Punjab, the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and its videos show the Sikh flag being raised at the Red Fort during the farmers’ unrest.
Since its launch, Moose Wala’s song SYL has garnered over 27 million views on YouTube and 3.3 million likes.
Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by assailants in Jawaharke village, Mansa district, Punjab on May 29.
The incident took place a day after his security was removed by Punjab police among 424 others. Notably, the singer had joined the Congress party last year in December ahead of the Assembly elections.
Canadian-based mobster Goldy Brar had claimed responsibility for Moose Wala’s murder in a Facebook post. Goldy Brar is a close associate of gang leader Lawrence Bishnoi, who is the prime suspect in the Punjabi rapper’s murder.
