Sonu Nigam has shaved his head just now in response to a call given by a Kolkata-based cleric, who announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anybody who shave the singers hair on his remark over use of loudspeakers in mosque, temples, church etc.
Sonu’s views about the use of loudspeakers created a storm when he wrote on social media, “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?”
The comment invited stiff reactions and the singer later clarified that he was against the use of loud speakers in general and not against any religion.
Today at the press conference Sonu was quoted saying, “I am a secular person. It was not about Azaan, it was about the loud sound. Playing loud sound on a speaker is gundagardi for me.”
“What is happening to the country? Anyone can lynch anyone or anyone can issue a fatwa. I’m not talking about any single religion,” he added.
Now let's see what happens next.
