According to him, “He released a song in which he was directly insulting people, which is capable of inciting the public.

“His offence as far as censorship board is concerned, is that of releasing the song without our permission. We can’t allow people live without order.

“We are taking him to court for prosecution, and, it is the court that will determine the appropriate punishment for him,” Afakallah added.
