The Youth Akali Dal (YAD) in the present day alleged that Punjabi singer and lyricist Shree Brar was arrested and tortured by the state authorities on the instructions of Union Dwelling Minister Amit Shah as a punishment for writing the “kisan anthem”.
Terming the arrest, torture and subsequent isolation of Shree Brar by the Patiala police as vindictive and in opposition to policing norms, YAD president Parambans Singh Romana mentioned the singer had given a significant increase to the “kisan andolan” by penning a music that had change into
its unofficial anthem.
“The music “Swaraja piche barigate paaye hoi ne” impressed lakhs of individuals to hitch the motion, which was not preferred by the Centre in addition to the Dwelling Ministry. That is why Shree Brar has been singled out for punishment with relation to a different music he wrote a month in the past,” Romana mentioned. — TNS
