Sidhu Moose Wala’s rise to fame took the cultural landscape of Punjab and its people by storm, and then spread even further and wider. His cold-blooded murder in broad daylight sent shockwaves perhaps even further.

The visceral trigger – a hail of bullets that killed him almost instantly – was strong enough for impulsive social media posts and algorithm-centric ‘X things you need to know’ journalism to run wild.

Before this, Shubdeep Singh Sidhu, alias Sidhu Moose Wala, had been a subject for news broadcast-cum-reality shows when he contested the Punjab assembly polls as a Congress candidate. He lost to the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Vijay Singla.

Last month, Singla was sacked as Punjab’s health minister and arrested over corruption charges. Moose Wala, who’s song ‘Scapegoat’ criticised voters for not electing honest people – like himself – quickly gloated about Singla’s sacking. Social media commentators even flirted with the idea that Moose Wala should take another shot at elections, maybe even for the Sangrur Lok Sabha seat that fell vacant after Bhagwant Mann became chief minister.

Fate had other plans.

When he was attacked, Moose Wala was travelling with two of his friends in a Mahindra Thar SUV and had left behind his two security personnel, – reduced from four by the AAP government the previous day – reportedly due to a space crunch in the vehicle.

The Punjab government had withdrawn or reduced the government security of 424 people, including Moose Wala, just a day before as part of a “crackdown against VIP culture”. Hence, the questions posed to the regime became even sharper and louder.

Barely two-and-a-half months after the AAP government was elected, law and order in Punjab has already been underlined as a specific issue by rival parties.

Tragic news! Just a week after Patiala’s clash; now a blast outside Intelligence Bureau, Mohali
Punjab Police instead of chasing Bagga should focus on state’s security. Punjab is a border state & Kejriwal shouldn’t experiment with its peace

Social groups, too, saw the murder as one more in a series of such incidents over the past few years, particularly after names of familiar gangs made an entry into the narrative.

Moose Wala, who would have turned 29 on June 11, attained success as a singer-songwriter and rapper, and acted in a few films in his short, five-year career. A graduate of electrical engineering and the son of a retired government employee living as a farmer in his village, Moosa in the Mansa district of Punjab, his name had become familiar
