Singer Jubin Nautiyal, who has lent his voice to new versions of songs like “The humma song” and “Tu jo mila raabta”, says he has been criticized for doing recreations.

Nautiyal was speaking at the second season of “Talking Music” on Saavn, a music and audio streaming service.

“I have been facing criticism for doing recreations. People don’t like me doing recreations. People tell me you have an original voice and you have an original way of doing things, why do you have to recreate things… I believe a song has music writers, singers, music directors, arrangers but the song in itself is of utmost importance,” Nautiyal said in a statement.

The singer says when he works on a track, he gives his full attention to it.

“I don’t pay attention to where it has come from, is it a recreation or anything else. When a singer starts thinking about these things that’s where he messes up with what he is doing at that present moment. So, when I’m enjoying in that moment, it always works,” he added.

But Nautiyal says he will now only focus on original numbers.

“People were a little angry with the remake of ‘Pehla nasha’ because it’s a classic. They were like ‘you have ruined our song’ but it’s okay, this year I won’t do recreations, I will focus more on originals,” he said.

The “Zindagi kuch toh bata” crooner says he takes criticism in the right spirit.

“I come from a political background with business. I could be very high headed but one thing my parents have taught me is to take and how to take criticism… If it is genuine criticism I never forget. And remember it when I am doing my riyaaz (practice),” he said.

“When the criticism is not genuine you know it is not in your heart. So, I just follow my heart,” he added. (IANS)

Religions for Peace (RfP) is an organization representing religious leaders of different faiths in Australia and includes Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Bahai faith. Hindu Council of Australia has been a member, represented by its director Vijai Singhal for over a decade now.

According to RfP founder, this Interfaith forum is different from others. Apart from meetings and speeches, it tries to connect individual faith leaders together in a bond of friendship which is best manifested by leaders of different faiths become personal friends. She cited as an example of a christian member whose daughter’s wedding was attended by and blessed by Muslims, Jews and from other faiths.

Anti-Hate laws in NSW

High on its agenda was an anti-hate and anti-discrimination law being considered by the state of NSW. Phillip Ruddock, former Attorney General of Australia and now Mayor of Hornsby shire has held wide consultations with community and submitted a report. Ian Lacey, a lawyer explained to members that Australian constitution in 1901 has included a clause on freedom of religions which means that :

religions
RfP held a meeting on 19th November 2018 to discuss various issues.
  1. Government can not establish a religion
  2. Government can not enforce a religion
  3. Government can not stop a religion and
  4. Government can not ask for a religious qualifications for a job

This, he explained, provides freedom of religion to all Australians.

Various states like Victoria and Queensland have enacted Vilification or anti-hate laws which are not working very well. He feared that NSW should not follow their path and instead enact a robust law like that in Britain which

  1. Allows people to criticize a religion but
  2. Does not allow adherents of a religion to be discriminated

He further explained that stopping people from criticizing religions can have the opposite effect of becoming a blasphemy law.  We all know how some fundamentalists regimes have enacted blasphemy laws and have used them to prosecute and impose a certain religion.

Father Patrick and Rachelle Kahn who recently returned from Parliament of World’s Religions held in Toronto briefed about their impressions of the visit.  The first Parliament was held in 1893 where Swami Vivekanand had given his first now world famous address starting with “Brothers and Sisters” instead of the usual “Ladies and Gentlemen” salutation of the time.

The next Parliament was held a 100 years later in 1993 and is now an annual affair. The representation was very wide spread with 7,500 people, from 80 countries, 222 religions and over 500 workshops. However, the depth of religious fervor was very shallow.
