In the note, they wrote, “We the makers of Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2 Agni Pariksha take cognizance of the concerns expressed by the Shia Sect of the (Muslim) community and sincerely apologize for the fact that elements of the song ‘Haq Hussain’ have unintentionally hurt their sentiments. Objections were raised by people of the community for the word ‘Hussain’ and the use of the matam zanjeer.”
The makers went on to speak about their decision, “We have unilaterally decided to make changes to the song. In consultation with the CBFC Censor Board, we have removed zanjeer blades from the song and we’ve changed the lyrics of the song ‘Haq Hussain’ to ‘Junoon Hai’.
