What is to be expected in general from a country’s government? Constant support and finding instant solutions to the citizen’s problems, right? Well, not here in our country it seems. In fact, expecting and complaining about anything here to the government is a crime.
The people of the country have always had a negative feeling about the Government’s functioning. And with this incident right here, they’ve made it even clearer that the hatred and aggression for them after all, is justified.
India’s youngest RJ and the country’s sensation has initiated a war. Against no one but the Government, and for all the right reasons.
Red FM radio jockey Malishka recently ran into legal trouble over a video that was posted on the channel’s social media page.
The Yuva Sena alleged that she was defaming Mumbai and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), by blaming them for shortcomings in an aspect of the city that does not fall under their jurisdiction.
The video, “Mumbai, tula BMC var bharavsa nahi ka?” (Mumbai, don’t you trust BMC?) went viral on social media.
Post this, the RJ has been facing a hell lot of threats from the BMC. From regular checkups at her apartment in Bandra, to claiming that she’s breeding mosquitos, the government has tried everything to zip her mouth and bring her morale down.
Following the release of the song, Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana has even targeted Malishka, asking her, “Malishka, tula dengue var bharosa navy kaay?” (“Malishka, don’t you trust Dengue?”). Yuva Sena members even went a step further and urged the municipal commissioner to file a Rs 500-crore defamation suit against 93.5 Red FM.
But as strong and real as the woman is, she hasn’t shown an inch of fear from the threats she’s been receiving all this while.
The entire Mumbai stands with her, for her. What is it to be scared of then?
Recently, after all the BMC lash backs and Mumbaikar’s support, Malishka has come out to speak in this regard, and mind you, the woman is clearly not backing out.

Malishka also thanked Mumbaiites on Twitter for their support.

She also received support from activists like Shailesh Gandhi. He tweeted, “Support Malishka against BMC harassment for singing the truth. Upload your own videos.”
Another activist from Bandra, Dolphy D’Souza, said there should be no punitive action against Malishka. He said, “Instead of taking corrective measures, the BMC is shooting the messenger.”
Hashtags like Mumbai with Malishka, I support RJ Malishka and Pothole rap continued to trend on the social-networking websites.
