“Since the cultural bridge between India and Pakistan is under the siege, his performance sent shivers down the spine of every Indian. Mika Singh’s unbridled greed of money over the nation indicates a total non-application of mind and smacks of roguish, malafide and traumatic intentions”, FWICE stated.
It also said, “We at FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) mother body of all the 24 crafts of film making have zero tolerance for such acts and unanimously condemn it as anti-national, unpatriotic and ghastly and totally ban Mika Singh alias Amrik Singh and the 14 crew members who participated in the presentation from any performance, recording, playback singing, acting in India.”
The letter concluded by saying “We humbly appeal the production houses, Music Directors. Event Managers, All India Radio, All FM Stations, Music Companies, Recording Companies, National TV and Sattelite Channels and others related to boycott Mika Singh for any musical activity irrevocably forever. Anybody dealing with Mika Singh will do at their own risk and will be boycotted.”
