Well, The singer accepted the cleric's challenge and he shaved his head as he promised. One of them to threaten him was the Muslim cleric Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi, who went onto announce Rs. 10 lakh reward for anyone who shaves Sonu Nigam's head. I too have a right to opinion.
For the last two days Sonu Nigam has been on the blatant receiving end of severe criticism following his "anti-Muslim" tweets on the Azaan. "Our appeal to Nigam is o get up early with the sound of azaan".
"The one who is cutting my hair is a Muslim and I'm a Hindu".
Today, the 43-year-old clarified his stand and said, "I believe loudspeakers are not a necessity in temples, masjids or gurdwaras". And the press is welcome to participate'.
Following the report, Singer took an unprecedented call and announced he will go bald. "Keep your 10 lakh ready, maulavi", Nigam tweeted, and kept his word. The singer recently took to the social media and accepted the aforesaid challenge.
Yesterday, Sonu gave clarifications on this issue but still, he had to face the anger; he wrote that he was just against the inconvenience caused due to loudspeakers and not against any religion. "If we interpret the talk of fatwa with love and if you'll understand what I have said then that is wonderful". Most are right and left wing people but people in the middle are less. Sonu Nigam's tweet about the aforementioned topic rubbed created quite a furore. "If some insane people want to misinterpret my tweets and show me in bad light, I can't help it".
The tirade of "forced religiousness" is not new in India, however, all hell broke loose when Sonu Nigam, voiced his angst against the collateral noise pollution that we are subjected to in the name of religion.
