Bhubaneswar: Odia girl and Bollywood singer Sona Mohapatra, who had recently landed in controversy over remix of cult Sambalpuri song ‘Rangabati’, has brought allegation against the Madariya Sufi Foundation claiming that she has been threatened by the organisation.

In a series of tweets to the Mumbai police, the singer alleged that the foundation sent her a notice asking her to remove her latest video from all communication channels on the grounds that it did not comply with the Sufi format.

She further claimed that the foundation termed her video ‘Tori Surat’ obscene and objectionable. “Respected @CP-MumbaiPolice , I have been sent a threatening email notice from the Madariya Sufi Foundation demanding that I take down a music video that has been passed by the censor board of India & I would like to forward the same to your official email id along with my response,” the singer tweeted to Mumbai police.
