Last year in April, singer Sonu Nigam’s tweets against the use of loudspeakers for the azaan in mosques sparked a huge controversy in the country.
People slammed the singer for his comment and it looks like that it still haunts the singer as his life is in grave danger. As per reports, fundamentalist groups are plotting the singer’s assassination.
Yes, the Maharashtra State Intelligence Department issued an advisory of a threat to singer Sonu and two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs, Ram Kadam and Ashish Shelar.
The report from the intelligence department stated that Sonu can be attacked at any public place, promotional activity or during an event. Following the report, special security has been provided by Mumbai Police to Sonu.
Last year, when the singer raised an objection on the Muslim Azaan on the microblogging site Twitter, many religious groups had lashed out at him. In fact, he was also challenged to shave off his head and the singer did so.
Even recently, the singer made some rather strong comments on the National Anthem being played in cinema halls. He expressed his dislike with the idea of it being played in theatres or restaurants.
Well, we hope the singer stays safe!
