jamuna entertainment desk: Singer Sonu Nigam has shaved his head after a Fatwa was issued announcing 10 Lakhs for anyone who shaves Nigam's head.
The Muslim cleric was angry after Sonu Nigam shook the Internet on April 17 with a series of tweets questioning why needed to be woken up by the ‘Azaan’ in the morning and when this “forced religiousness would end in India”?
Sonu appeared before the media bald at his home Wednesday afternoon and said, “I believe in all faiths and I didn’t speak against any religion.”
The singer, who was branded as an 'anti-Muslim' for his tweets, said: "Jiss insaan ne poori zindagi Mohd Rafi sahab ko apna pita maana hai, jiske guru ka naam Ustad Gulam Mustafa Khan sahab hai, us insan ke baare mein koi aisa soche, kahe ya taunt kare ki anti-Muslim hai, toh ye meri problem nahi hai, ye aapki problem hai. (I am someone who spent my entire life idolising Mohd Rafi as my father figure, I am someone whose teacher is Ustad Gulam Mustafa Khan, and I am being labelled anti-Muslim… it’s not my problem but the other person’s."
Sonu Nigam also stressed over how it is his democratic right to have an opinion, "This is a social topic and not religious and I have a right to my opinion.”
For the last two days, Sonu Nigam has been at the receiving end of severe criticism after his tweets on the 'Azaan' went viral.
