Sidhu Moosewala’s dad claims the Punjab Govt is giving him a hard time over his newborn son.

Sidhu Moosewala’s dad claims the Punjab Govt is giving him a hard time over his newborn son.

Balkaur Singh, father of late Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, alleges that the Punjab Government is causing trouble for him regarding the birth of his second son.

Nearly two years after Sidhu Moosewala’s death in Mansa district, Mr. Singh and his wife Charan Kaur welcomed a baby boy on March 17th, using a special technique called In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

On March 19th, in an Instagram post, Mr. Singh stated that the government was bothering him to prove the legality of his child.

“Two days ago, by the blessings of ‘Waheguru’ and your prayers, we got our Shubhdeep [Sidhu Moosewala] back,” Mr. Singh said in the video clip. “However, the administration has been harassing me since morning, asking me to furnish documents of the baby. They are posing me several questions, asking me to prove that this child is legal.” In the video, he requested the government, “particularly CM ‘saab’ [Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann], let the treatment be completed. I hail from this place and will come wherever you call me”.


“As I am pained, I want to tell you in strong words that you have a habit of taking U-turns. Your advisors give you such advice… I am not among those who take U-turns,” Mr. Singh said and asserted that he did not violate any law.

“If I have done so [violate the law] then send me behind bars… lodge an FIR against me, put me in jail and then carry out an investigation. I will provide all the legal documents,” he said in the video post.

It’s been reported that on March 14, the Union Health Ministry asked the Punjab Government to provide a report about Charan Kaur’s IVF treatment, while citing a media report.

Sources indicate that the letter highlighted that according to section 21 (g) (i) of the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Act, 2021, women between the ages of 21 and 50 are eligible for ART services.

However, Moosewala’s father is approximately 60 years old, and his mother, Charan Kaur, is 58 years old.

Meanwhile, leaders from the Opposition parties criticized the AAP Government for the allegations brought forward by Moosewala’s father.

Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, in a post on X, stated, “Bhagwant Mann ji, you may be the only Punjabi who hasn’t congratulated @iBalkaurSidhu ji on the birth of his son. Now, your administration is troubling him with legal obstacles. I urge you to cease harassing the Sidhu family and allow them to experience happiness for once.” Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia expressed disappointment over the requirement for documents from Mr. Balkaur Singh for his newborn.

He claimed that the State Government was troubling Moosewala’s family.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, also known as Sidhu Moosewala, was killed in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29, 2022. The singer had run for a seat in the Punjab Assembly elections of 2022 as a Congress candidate from Mansa but was unsuccessful.
