That would prove that people truly denounce his sexism.

The titles is misleading. I agree, I have always been against censorship or outright ban. Because that again promotes pushing your beliefs. What actually happened is the hotel cancelled his concert. And as a private entity, they have all the right to, if they don't agree with his work. So, this is not banning. He is free to make videos, upload to YouTube. But people are boycotting him. Sensible opposition, I will say. Smile

My views concur with Rehanism and Freethinker.

 

Authority should not indulge in censorship. It is a dangerous precedent that gives unfair power to authority.  If it is the people boycott his misogynist and abusive lyrics, then power to the people.

Hadnt heard of Honey Singh nor any of his song. Neither he nor his songs have ben banned nor censored by any authorities. A hotel in gurgaon cancelled his programme on New Years eve keeeping the people's sensibilities in mind. I think thats perfectly alright!  How long such public censorship continues and to what extent remains to be seen. Its for the ppublic to take a stand.

Society likes to blame its failures on songs, books, games and movies. Rather than accept that our Indian society fails to instill the simple value "Respect women, do not rape" in our men, we want to blame vulgar lyrics and artists like Honey Singh. He made a good point in his interview. If songs affect people so much, how come no one is inspired and moved by all the patriotic songs out there. USA does the same with gun violence – blaming it on violent video games and song lyrics.

Sorry, the "Freedom of Expression" canon is non-applicable in cases of truly EXTREME vulgarity. Else obscenity laws would be meaningless. Plus, most of the people commenting here are unaware that this dude condoned RAPE in his song. Yup.
