'Azaan' row: High Court supports Sonu Nigam's 'Azaan' tweet!
The Azaan row created havoc in the country, where Sonu Nigam became a prime target for certain religious groups.
While some spoke in favour of the Bollywood singer, and understood his core message, others stuck to bashing him for his 'forced religiousness' tweet.
A petition was filed against Sonu Nigam for criticising the holy prayers from the loudspeaker.
However, the Punjab and Haryana High Court, backed Sonu Nigam and dismissed the baseless petition terming it a 'cheap' publicity stunt.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court has said that Azaan is an integral part of Islamic worship and not loudspeakers.
The petition was filed by Aas Mohammad, who sought for criminal proceedings against Sonu Nigam. He said that the tweets breached the Muslim community's fundamental right to manage religious affairs.
The court said, " A fair interpretation of the words used by respondent no 4 (Nigam) clearly indicates that the word 'gundagardi' in tweet no 4 is not addressed in the context of Azaan but the use of loudspeakers and amplifiers ."
One month since the entire controversy went up in flames needs to be overcome with. Fuelling someone's opinions just makes a situation get worse.
