Even young children are being greatly influenced by the hi-fi live style and gun culture being showcased in Punjabi pop songs. After listening to the songs of gun culture on TV and mobile, children start singing songs imitating the singer.
Families are also happy to see their child active and ask him to sing imitating gun culture songs in front of relatives at some home function. The people of the family do not think that what kind of image is being created on the hearts and minds of their child. What a great loss they and the child may have to bear in future. Gun violence and gangster culture being glorified in Punjabi songs can never be ignored.
In Punjabi pop songs, most singers present themselves as a boss with expensive cars, expensive clothes, shoes, expensive watches, a couple of kilo gold chains. Shown like this, he can slap anyone. Can hit anyone wet. In Punjabi songs, he is presented as a resolved gangster. It has become common practice in Punjabi pop songs to show assault and murder with guns, rifles, sharp weapons. In Punjabi songs, all this is shown by targeting the fearless and stubborn Jat Sikhs. The way in today’s era people have made the iPhone a status symbol. Similarly, Punjabi singers have made guns and rifles status symbols. Recently, popular singer Musewala among Punjabi youth was shot dead.
