Sonu Nigam shaves off his hair after azaan row, See exclusive pics

News Hour:

After two days of incessant trolling, a complaint to the police and being tagged anti-Muslim, Sonu Nigam finally spoke to the media and made his point about azaan tweet row clear. “Azaan is important, not loudspeaker. Arti is important, not loudspeaker,” the Bollywood singer said clearly and concisely while reaffirming his secular credentials. Moments later, he went and shaved off his hair. He was reacting to a Muslim cleric announcing a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anyone who will shave off his hair.

The Muslim cleric had slammed the singer and announced a reward. To this, Sonu said, “I’ll shave my head in a while. It’s not a challenge. It’s a request. What are you doing in this country? I am a believer but I don’t think my religion is the best but yours isn’t. I don’t believe in that. You have to fight fanaticism, you can’t be quite.”

He also said about getting his hair shaved off, “I have requested Alim to come. He will shave my head but it isn’t any agitation or challenge. The one who is cutting hair is a Muslim and I am a Hindu. There is no animosity. The same language of fatwa can be communicated in a language of love. Being secular means understanding each other’s problems and not saying ‘I am only right.’”

Talking about his own tweet, Sonu said, “Everyone has right to his opinion and I only spoke about loudspeakers. I spoke about a social issue, not any religion. I said it for temples, gurudwaras and mosques, why is it so hard to comprehend?” Sonu told the media.
