Government must take action against those who issue fatwa, urges Sonu Nigam!

Singer Sonu Nigam’s tweets against the use of loudspeakers for the azaan in mosques sparked a huge controversy last month. The 43-year-old singer has now urged the central government to take action against those who issued death threats in the form of ‘fatwa’.

Speaking to Rajat Sharma on his TV show Aap Ki Adalat, Sonu Nigam said: “I have full faith in God, who is omnipresent and all-pervading. But I don’t like this mentality, when any one issues fatwa against any other person, saying cut off his hair, kill him. There was a fatwa… for cutting off my head. In my view, the government must do something about this.”

“We live in a civilised and democratic country. We are a republic. How can we allow such things like fatwa? I am also against lynching of people by Gau Rakshaks. I am totally against them” he added.

He further said “I don’t like gundagardi (hooliganism) in any form. You can’t go in a group of 12 people and threaten a family in the name of religion. Such things should not happen in our country. We are all doing well, actually. We are doing very well these days. This is not a political statement, but I believe ‘Achhe din aa rahe hain’ (good days are coming).”

Sonu said he has no interest in joining politics and has no connection with any political party. “I do not have any contacts with politicians. Neither do I invite them, nor anybody comes to my house, nor do I get any phone calls from them. I am happy in my world. I don’t visit any politician’s house,” he said.

“Yes, I do have contacts with (AAP leader) Kumar Vishwas, but he is a poet, and he wants me to sing his songs. I am neither aligned with any political party, nor any organisation. I do charity work quietly, and I do not boast,” he added.

On being questioned whether he would like to settle abroad, Sonu Nigam said that he considers India his home. “Yes, sometimes I did feel that I should go away, but then there’s no country in the world where you would find 100 per cent things okay, there are shortcomings everywhere,” he said.

he episode of “Aap Ki Adalat” featuring Nigam will be aired later on Saturday on India TV.
