Sidhu Moosewala’s song “SYL”, which was released posthumously, is now not available on the video sharing/streaming platform YouTube in India. Written and composed by Moosewala, who was shot dead in May, the song was released by music producer MXRCI on Friday.

The track’s title refers to the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal, which has been a bone of contention between Punjab and Haryana for several decades.

Punjab has been demanding a reassessment of its share of the Ravi-Beas rivers water while Haryana has been seeking completion of the canal to get its share.

On Sunday, the song was removed from YouTube in India.

“Video unavailable. This content is not available on this country domain due to a legal complaint from the government,” the message displayed by YouTube read.

Since its debut, “SYL” had amassed over 27 million views on the Google-owned platform and had received 3.3 million likes.
