Bihar Police on Friday banned vulgar and obscene Bhojpuri songs for Mahashivratri and Holi. Instructions have been issued by the Bihar Police Headquarters to the DMs, SSPs, and SPs of all the districts on the same and stringent action will be taken against those who will upload obscene and provocative Bhojpuri songs on social media, reports said.

Reports further said special vigilance will be taken on festivals like Mahashivratri and Holi and songs that are casteist and hurt women’s sentiments.

The instructions said many casteists and vulgar Bhojpuri songs are surfacing on social media that are an insult to scheduled caste and women. And such singers are glorifying one caste and demean the other creating a possibility of deteriorating social harmony and the environment.

Following this, the Bihar Police Headquarters released the instruction on February 11 in the Bhojpur and Siwan districts and warned of strict punishment for the same.

The decision was taken in view of upcoming festivals like Mahashivratri and Holi and legal action will be taken against those who fail to follow the instructions, reports said.

Recently, violence erupted between two castes in Bihar’s districts of Arrah and Siwan after casteist Bhojpuri songs were played at an event. Reports said Bihar police failed to control the violence which is still prevailing in both districts.

The Bhojpuri music industry produced multiple songs every year and is often slammed for its vulgar lyrics and obscene videos.
