Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose wala was shot and killed.

On Sunday, May 29, unidentified assailants shot and killed Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala in Jawaharke village, Mansa district.

The Punjab Police dropped security for 424 persons, including Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala, the day before.

He ran for Punjab assembly in this year’s election on a Congress ticket from Mansa, but was beaten by AAP candidate Vijay Singla by 63,000 votes. Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann recently fired Vijay Singla amid allegations of corruption.

Sidhu Moose Wala stirred a controversy last month when his song “Scapegoat” criticised the Aam Aadmi Party and its supporters. In his song, the artist labelled AAP supporters “gaddar” (traitor).

He has received a flood of condolences.

“Deeply shocked at the broad daylight murder of Sidhu Moose Wala,” Congress politician Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted, condoling the Punjabi singer’s loss. Punjab and Punjabis all throughout the world have lost a gifted artist with a broad appeal who could sense people’s pulses. My sincere sympathies to his family and admirers around the world.”

Following the event, BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa urged that Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann be charged with “neglect of chief ministerial duty.”

“We have been advising the Punjab government to pay attention to the situation in Punjab. I urge a FIR be filed against Bhagwant Mann for failing to do his obligations as Chief Minister, which resulted in the death of Sidhu. Manjinder Singh Sirsa believes Bhagwant Mann and Arvind Kejriwal should be arrested.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu alias Sidhu Moose Wala was born on June 17, 1993, in the Moose Wala hamlet of Mansa district. Moose Wala’s fan base numbered in the millions, and he was well-known for his rap.

Moose Wala had an electrical engineering degree. He had studied music in college and had afterwards relocated to Canada.

He was also renowned as one of Punjab’s most divisive artists, openly supporting gun culture and praising gangsters in incendiary songs. His song ‘Jatti Jeonay Morh Di Bandook Wargi,’ which was released in September 2019, sparked a debate about a reference to Sikh fighter Mai Bhago from the 18th century. He was accused of casting a negative light on this Sikh warrior. Later, Moose Wala apologised.
