Bhubaneswar: Odia singer Sona Mohapatra have allegedly received a threat notice from Madariya Sufi foundation to remove her latest music video ‘Tori Surat’ from all platforms of communication. She tweeted about these threats to the Mumbai police in her series of tweets on Monday. As per the Sufi group, the video is vulgar and would flare communal tensions, tweeted the singer.

However, the police were quick to respond and an investigation is underway in the case. The Singer has also submitted a letter to the Santacruz police on Monday about alleged threatening emails she has been receiving from a Sufi organisation since last few days.

In her latest tweet a couple of hours ago, she shared the song and have asked the persons who get offended by it to go and live in the pre-histoic caves.

In her latest video, Sona Mohapatra sings the immortal Sufi love song penned by Ameer Khusro for his murshid & beloved, Nizammudin Auliya.

The ancient 13th century lyrics have composition & music by Ram Sampath & a high energy video directed by Sneha Shetty. This video has Sona in unique earthy incarnations of the feminine divine from different cultures.

The looks featured in the video were chosen by public on Facebook as a collaborative audience interactive project.
