Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam goes on a Twitter rant about Azaan and “forced religiousness”
Sonu landed in trouble on Monday morning for his controversial tweets.
The singer took to Twitter early in the morning when he found himself woken up by the morning Azaan from a mosque presumably near his house.
The singer was apparently so displeased by the sound of Azaan that he termed it as "forced religiousness".
Sonu then went on a Twitter rant as he put out a series of tweets on the subject and even questioned, "Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison?"
He continued, “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 uses electricity To wake up people who don't follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True? Gundagardi hai bus...
In no time, the singer started facing severe backlash on Twitter for his comments. Many users criticized him for raking up a religious issue. Learn to accept & respect our religious differences. Living in a multi-religious society demands some tolerance.
