This comes weeks after Sidhu’s father had shared a video message on his son’s Instagram account after rumours surfaced that he was to contest PELE. In the 55-second-long video, he had said in Punjabi, “I’m the father of Sidhu Moose Wala. I wanted to tell you a few things. I’m very sad about what I’m seeing on social media. There are different rumours that are going on, don’t believe that. I lost my son recently. I have no intention of contesting any elections.”
He continued, “Thank you for supporting me in these difficult times. I have a request for all of you. There is a prayer meeting on June 8, you come I will meet and answer your questions then. Currently, I am not in a state to talk much.” The video was shared with a folding hands emoji. Sidhu was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Jawaharke village of Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. The incident took place a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police among 424 others.
Several celebrities have been paying tribute to the late singer. Recently, actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh remembered his ‘brothers’ Sidhu, Punjabi actor-activist Deep Sidhu and Kabaddi player Sandeep Singh Sandhu during his concert in Vancouver. He performed at the Rogers Arena and shared a video on Instagram with the caption, “One Love”.
The clip featured Diljit singing and giving a speech in Punjabi, as the digital screen behind him read, “This show is dedicated to our brothers”, with pictures of Sidhu, Deep and Sandeep.
