After being trolled on social media, Bollywood playback singer Sonu Nigam has further clarified that his tweets about forced religiousness are not against any religion but primarily the usage of loudspeakers.
Nigam received thousands of responses on social media site Twitter and thereafter he tweeted, “Dear everyone. Your stand exposes your own IQ. I stand by my statement that loudspeakers should not be allowed in Mosques & Temples. Period.”
The singer, who is known for singing love songs, ranted about having to wake up to the sound of Azaan in the morning in a series of tweets.
The singer’s tweets were not taken lightly and Twitteratti reacted strongly to his social media rant.
This is not the first time the topic of Azaan has been picked up by celebrities in India. Earlier, Bollywood powerhouse performer Priyanka Chopra said that she finds the sound of Azaan mesmerising.
In an old video clip, Priyanka was addressing a press conference in Bhopal where a reporter asked her what she liked about the city.
The famous actress replied that she waits for the time of Azaan on her hotel room’s terrace daily before sunset.
Priyanka said that the way Azaans resonate in sync before sunset is quite peaceful and captivating.
