A new teej song of 2010 by Komal Oli made headlines when Nepal Television banned its promotion.
When a promo of her upcoming album was banned from Nepal Television, Komal Oli called a press conference to express her dissatisfaction.
While some think the words in song calling Lord Shiva ‘Badmas‘ is not good for religious sentiments. Other think Komal herself is creating issue out of nothing to promote her album.
There have been a series of banning in Nepal recently. It looks like, various government agencies are depressed by the failure to form a government two after the resignation of he current PM and are venting their dissatisfaction in the form of banning everything they don’t like personally.
This time, a promo of an upcoming album of Komal Oli was banned from Nepal Television. Komal Oli once used to be the news anchor at the TV. The promo was being broadcasted in the television for a couple of weeks. It was suddenly halted on Sunday.
In the controversial song, calls Lord Shiva a Badmas.
