T-Series on Wednesday removed the song of Pakistani singer Atif Aslam from its YouTube channel.
The music company has taken this decision after opposition from the political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
The T-series on Saturday released the Atif Aslam Wala version of the song ‘Kinnah Sona’ from the film Marjawan on its YouTube channel.
However, after this, Amase Khopkar, president of MNS’s Chitrapat Sena, warned the production house to take a big action if the video is not removed. In a letter written in the name of MNS chief Raj Thackeray, the T-series has stated in its explanation that the song was uploaded on YouTube by mistake.

We assure you that this song will not be released on our platform nor will we promote it. We are removing this song and assure you that we will not assist any Pakistani artist.”
