Singer Sonu Nigam has been savaged on social media after complaining of the use of loudspeakers in the azaan or the morning call to prayer on Monday.
Sonu, who was woken up to the sound of Azaan early in the morning, took social media by storm after terming the practice as “forced religiousness,” on April 17.
His controversial tweets evoked a mixed response on the Internet and among every genre of people in the nation.
Later, he went on to explain his earlier tweets and said, “When I am talking about Loudspeakers, I did mention Temples and Gurudwaras too.”
Television’s favourite ‘bahu’ Divyanka Tripathi has always been the one who does not mince her words on any issue. Actress has raised her voice many times on various social issues and controversies.
Divyanka Tripathi has broken her silence on Sonu Nigam’s ‘azaan’ controversy but she has different take on it.
Actress took to twitter and wrote, “Moderation of speaker is important for all. Equal regulations needed for temples, mosques, gurudwaras & churches. #CivicIssue not #Religious
Divyanka has clearly taken Sonu’s side on this issue. Divyanka is currently seen in Star Plus’ show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye 8’ with her husband Vivek Dahiya.
Other Bollywood celebs too have expressed their views on this controversy.
Actor Ranvir Shorey tweeted: “Huge respect for this, Sonu Nigam” while veteran actor Anupam Kher wrote: ?Bande mein hai dum.”
Actress-producer Khushboo also tweeted saying: “Stay strong as you always have been. Nothing can take away your strength and grit.”
The prevailing sentiment on social media matches theirs. “Bravo, Sonu Nigam shaves his head. Now where is the Maulvi who issued Fatwa of 10 lakhs hiding? Looks like these fatwas are issued for publicity,” read a tweet.
