Diljit Dosanjh has spoken about the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala and blamed the government's failure for it. Diljit spoke about Moosewala's parents and how they must be suffering after their son's death. He also spoke about how artists have often been killed in the past. But overall, he blamed the government for their ‘nalayaki’.
Diljit talked about the recent deaths of Moosewala and Deep Sidhu (who died in a car accident) in an interview. “All of them worked hard. I don't think an artiste can do anything wrong to anyone, I am talking about my own experience. Mujhe ye manne mein nahi aati baat (I don't agree with it). There could be nothing between him and someone else. So why would anyone kill someone else? This is a very sad thing. Even talking about it is so difficult. Think about it, you have just one child and he dies. His father and mother, how would they be living with it. You cannot imagine what they are going through, only they know it,” he said.
“100% ye sarkar ki nalayaki hai. Ye politics hai aur politics bahut gandi hai. Bhagwan se hum prarthna kar sakte hain ki unko insaaf mile aur aisi tragedy na ho (This is 100% government's failure. This is politics and politics is very bad. We pray to God that he gets justice and such tragedy never happens again). We are not in this world to kill each other but this has been happening since the beginning. Artistes have been killed before as well… I remember when I started, there used to be problems. People would feel why is this person getting so successful but killing someone is just… I don't know. It is the government's fault 100% and this is politics, according to me,” he added.
The 28-year-old Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead on May 29 this year. The killers fired about 30 rounds from weapons including AK-47, AK-94 when the singer had left his home for some work.
