The upcoming Mumbai tour of Canada-based singer Shubneet Singh, popularly known as Shubh, has come under scrutiny. Not only has the prominent Indian consumer electronics brand boAt pulled its sponsorship, but the event also faces criticism from political quarters.
Tajinder Singh Tiwana, the president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), voiced strong objections against Shubh’s performance. He stated, “There is no place for those who stand against India’s integrity and unity. We are firmly against allowing Shubh to perform on the sacred land associated with Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.” He further warned that unless suitable actions are taken, the event organizers should brace for opposition from the BJYM.
This development has raised several questions about the reason for boAt’s sudden withdrawal from sponsoring the event. While the brand has not specified its rationale, the timing coinciding with political objections is noteworthy.
Shubh’s Mumbai tour is slated to take place from the 23rd to the 25th of September aboard Cordelia Cruises. Given the escalating concerns and controversies, it remains to be seen how the event unfolds and if any changes are made to the scheduled performances.
