The recently released number “Garbe Ki Raat” sung by Rahul Vaidya has been very popular among netizens. On the other hand, it has faced fury from certain sections of society. The lyrics of the song have Shri Mogal Maa mentioned in it, the goddess is one of the most respected deities in the state of Gujarat.

The callers are advising the singer to get the changes done in the song. Additionally, devotees have threatened to ban the song if desired changes are not done.
Nevertheless, Rahul Vaidya’s spokesperson has confirmed the news. He said, “Yes it is true, these messages and calls have gone up in number since last night. While some messages speak about having Rahul Vaidya killed, others are threatening to file FIRs against him to have him arrested. Although we would like to maintain that the mention of the deity was done with respect. The composer and singer did not mean to hurt anyone’s sentiments.”
Furthermore, the spokesperson says, “Since the mention has not gone down well with a certain section of people, we respect that. Therefore, we are working to get it rectified at our level. We urge everyone who has taken offense to this to allow us a few days. The platform we have released the song on will take some time for the rectification.”
Meanwhile, assurance is given to devotees that “We respect the emotions and sentiments of people who have raised their concern. We are diligently working towards rectifying it.”
