Video streaming social media outlet YouTube removed slain Indian musician Sidhu Moose Wala’s last song SYL from viewership within India.
The video streaming social media application removed the video after the Punjab government filed a legal complaint about it.
SYL is the short form of the 214-canal Sutlej-Yamuna Link canal. It is under dispute between Punjab and Haryana states for 30 years.
Sidhu Moose Wala’s music video was released on June 23 by music producer MXRCI.
“This content is not available on this country domain due to a legal complaint from the government,” the message reads after clicking on the link.
It showed pictures of leaders alleged to be members of pro-Khalistan Babbar Khalsa. They are suspects in the murder of Chief engineer M.L Sikri and Superintendent engineer A.S Aulakh at the SYL office in 1990.
