The song was written by Amir Khusrow, who was a Sufi musician, poet and scholar, for his love.

Detailing the complaint on her Twitter feed, Mohapatra initially tweeted to the Mumbai Police that she had received a "threatening notice" from the Madariya Sufi Foundation which had asked her to remove the video for 'Tori Surat' from all mediums. The foundation also said that the music videos were made specifically for misguiding the youth. "I want to know whom to write in to in my response..."

She said the foundation had called her a "regular offender" in reference to her rendition of ' Piya Se Naina ' released five years ago on Coke Studio, as it "insults Islam because she is dressed exposing her body and playing westernised music". Ms. Mohapatra visited the Santacruz police station in the evening. According to the singer, the Foundation has termed the video of the song Tori Surat as "vulgar".

Sameer Boghani, president of the Madariya Sufi Foundation, said the outfit has not violated any law by sending a notice to Mohapatra over her "objectionable" video song.

"Basically [a problem] with everything woman [and] free", she wrote. She pointed out that the Foundation probably had a problem with everything feminine.

Sona Mohapatra last created a buzz when she took a jibe at Salman Khan during his conviction in the Blackbuck Poaching case, following which she received rape, mutilation, death and acid attack threats but Mumbai Police didn't prove to be of much help then. A tweet by one such supporter, Zoha Abdullah, said, "First of all what is the sufi foundation's business watching you when they are supposed to keep their gazes down!" And, they have accused me under the blasphemy law. "Bullies need to be confronted and I am only doing what is necessary".
