Elton John withdraws his song from India

Everyone is sorryMumbai. Renowned musician and singer Sir Elton John has withdrawn his song “sorry seems to be the hardest word” from Indian subcontinent. He has asked music companies of the region, especially in India and Pakistan, to delete this song from all his albums. He has also requested singers like Richard Marx and boy band Blue to put pressure on their music companies to do the same for their respective versions of the song.

Elton John is reported to be deeply hurt by recent developments in the region which he thought negated the mood of this particular song. The song is one of the rare ones where he had himself written much of the lyrics, and hence he was moved to take such a decision. The musician and singer refused to speak to Faking News when we contacted him for a reaction.

But Faking News has learnt that following events in the recent past had caused Sir Elton John to withdraw the song:

Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari told he was ‘sorry’ for Indians killed in the Mumbai terror attacks.

Maharashtra deputy CM R R Patil told he was ‘sorry’ for calling the terror attacks a small incident.

Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh told he was ‘sorry’ to take Ram Gopal Verma along when visiting hotel Taj Mahal, which was ravaged in Mumbai terror attacks.

Kerala CM V S Achuthanandan told he was ‘sorry’ for his dog comment.

Bollywood actress Simi Garewal told she was ‘sorry’ to have called Muslims living in Mumbai slums as Pakistan supporters.

There has been various other instances in India and neighboring countries earlier as well, which had made Sir Elton John unhappy, but the recent statements are reported to have moved him so strongly that the declared that he was withdrawing the song. Such a sorry state of affairs.
