Composer Mithoon, known for providing music in films like "The Train" and "Bas Ek Pal", says he does not believe in songs that objectify women as it goes against his religious beliefs.
"My motive is not to create music that is against god. Like, I am a Christian and Jesus Christ had forgiven even a prostitute and gave her respect in front of everyone. Being a devotee of Jesus, if I make songs like 'Fevicol se' and 'Munni badnaam', then what is the way I am presenting women?," the 27-year-old said here Friday in an interview.
"Then I would have no right to call myself Christian. That is why I would never make vulgar songs. I don't like them," he added.
Mithoon believes that noisy dance numbers may be in trend these days, but it is soulful music that lives on through generations.
"I don't have any problem with 'dhoom dhadaka' kind of songs. But that is not my style and personality. 'Dhoom dhadaka' lasts just for a few days, but soulful music stays on forever," Mithoon said.
"Many big composers, especially Madan Mohan, never made that kind of a song. But people still remember him. I want to work for the next 30 to 40 years and I do not want to become part of any competition," he added.
Mithoon had recently composed a few songs for "Jism 2" and "Murder 2". His next project is "Aashiqui 2".

If he hadn't pointed fingers, I wouldn't have said anything. But since he felt the need to point fingers, I'll ask.
He composed for Jism 2 and Murder 2. Did he not know what type of films they were?
What is Munni Badnaam? I could say it's a woman celebrating and asserting her sexuality.
Coming to his songs, wonderful, talented young man. Those two songs from Anwar are soul stirring.
