Singer Sonu Nigam has been in the Azaan controversy from Monday morning when he wrote a series of tweets and questioned the mosques about the need of loudspeakers while calling out for prayers. He also mentioned that he seamlessly annoyed by the sound of Azaan early in the morning and also mentioned the ‘forced religiousness’ which has dragged him into controversy.
Sonu Nigam shaved his head in a live television with the help of his volunteers on Wednesday after the senior member of minority council issued a fatwa for making comments on Azaan. The cleric said that he would offer 10 lakhs reward for the person who shaved Sonu Nigam’s head, garland him with old shoes and tour him around the country.
The singer reacted to the call made by the Vice-President of West Bengal United Minority Council, Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi in a series of tweets. He mentioned that it is not a religious gundagardi and he will get Head Shave. In a press conference, Nigam said
“He raised a social topic and not a religious one when he tweeted about being woken up by the sound of Azaan, the Muslim call to prayers, and apologized “if someone thought otherwise”. I am a secular person. It was not about azaan, it was about the loud sound. Playing loud sound on a speaker is gundagardi for me.”
His remarks on azaan triggered and created a storm in social media. After being trolled by haters, he also mentioned that he is not against mosques which use loudspeakers but also the temples and Gurudwaras as well. Sonu Nigam has given clarity that he is not against any religion but only the use of loudspeakers.
