Punjabi singer Babbu Maan whilst in Canada was asked to speak about the problems of drugs in Punjab and what his thoughts on the issue were.
Babbu Maan said intoxicants (nasha) came in many forms including alcohol which is distributed openly, and that all forms of intoxicants are bad and should be refrained from, but he also said that Punjab was wrongly being targeted. He stated, “as problems such as these exist worldwide, not only in Punjab.”
He said that Punjab was not as bad as people are making it out to be. This echoed the thoughts of Harp Farmer who has started an initiative on social media for people who do not take intoxicants to post videos under #StopDefamingPunjab
