I watched it so many times and shared it many times.
We wanted to know the meaning of the song so I got the original Malayalam lyrics and translated it online.

It is inappropriate and an insult to the prophet.
We showed it our elders and we decided to lodge a complaint. I am not against the film or the actors.
I am not against the film’s release also.
We are only protesting against this song because it hurts sentiments of Muslims,” Muqeeth said.
