Singer Sonu Nigam is making headlines over his controversial remarks on the use of loudspeakers at religious places. Recently, Sonu Nigam ranted about being woken up by morning Azaan in a series of tweets.
The popular playback singer wrote, “God bless everyone. I’m not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India.” “And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison I don’t believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity To wake up people who don’t follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True? Gundagardi hai bus…” he said, in a consecutive series of tweets further.
Soon after the tweets, Sonu Nigam’s remarks became the talk of the nation and now the latest we get to hear is that an FIR has been lodged against Sonu Nigam in this case.
The complaint was filed in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra and the official copy of it has been released.
Today morning, Sonu announced in a tweet that he would shave his head in the afternoon, in response to a fatwa allegedly issued against him by a Muslim minister in West Bengal.
Sonu has also invited the press to be present at his residence at 2 pm.
According to a daily, a senior member of the West Bengal Minority United Council said, “If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and tour him around the country I personally announce an award of Rs.10 lakhs for that person.”
