KATHMANDU, March 20: Singer Prakash Saput has removed the scene of a female combatant shown indulging in prostitution from the song 'Pir' after widespread criticisms. He uploaded a new video of the song on YouTube on Saturday evening.

Singer Saput has clarified that he removed the video after he felt that the particular scene in the video song would remain as a thorn in the video and that it would remain as an archive on social media. He also said that song Pir has not only been successful but has also been an eye opener in many perspectives.

"While making creations based on the facts, it is important to keep in mind the views of the Nepali audience, listeners, the group/community and the society as a whole," said Saput. He also said that the particular scene and character had actually overshadowed other beautiful aspects of the song and video.

The new video has been uploaded again by editing the scene considering the reviewer's views and the self-esteem and dignity of the group concerned. 

Saput has said that the Pir song has inspired him to explore more before coming out with new creations. He, however, said that it is important to hold debate whether creators should narrow their creative scope or viewers broaden their lens. 

Singer Saput has also requested all sides concerned not to further politicize and create unnecessary controversy about the song.
