Atif Aslam's song has been removed from the YouTube channel by a well-known Indian music and film production company (T-Series) and people in his own country are protesting against the company on social media.
According to Indian newspaper India Today, the T-series removed Atif Aslam's song (Kinna Sona) from the YouTube channel after the threat of the Hindu extremist party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

The T-series had released Atif Aslam's song on YouTube a few days ago, which went viral as soon as it was seen and if the Pakistani singer's popularity was not digested by Hindu extremists, he threatened the music company to remove the song.
According to India Today, the Hindu extremist group had threatened serious consequences for not removing the song from the T-series, after which the music company not only removed the Pakistani singer's song but also apologized to the Hindu extremist party.
According to the report, T-Series removed the song and apologized to the Hindu extremist group, claiming that an employee of the company had uploaded the Pakistani singer's song on YouTube by mistake.
According to the T-series, they did not promote the songs of Pakistani singers and they do not intend to promote the songs of Pakistani singers. While Atif Aslam's song (Kinna Sona) was removed from the T-series, while Hindu extremists seemed happy with the music company, ordinary Indians also appeared angry with the company and started a trend in favor of Atif Aslam.
After the removal of Atif Aslam's song, Indian fans started trending on Twitter (India Lose Atif Aslam) and (Subscribe T-Series) to record their protest against the music company.
Indian fans demanded that Atif Aslam's song be re-uploaded on YouTube, as art has no boundaries. After the Pakistani singer's song was removed from the T-series, Indian fans appealed to the people to subscribe to the music company's YouTube channel against this action.
It may be recalled that earlier last year, the T-series had removed the songs of Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan from YouTube in February after protests by Hindu extremists. Many filmmakers and companies have refused to work with Pakistani artists and singers following threats from extremists, and Pakistani artists are still banned in India.
