Ready to apologise if my tweets were 'anti-Muslim': Sonu Nigam

The maulvi had declared a prize money of Rs 10 lakh on Monday to anyone who shaved Mr Nigam's head, put a garland of old shoes around him and took him on a tour around the country.

He hit back: "Today at 2pm, Aalim will come to my place and shave my head. When will this forced religiousness end in India" triggered this controversy. Be it azaan or aarti, there should be no loudspeaker.

Sonu Nigam posted a number of tweets to clarify his stance. I am not against Azaan, only the use of loudspeakers.

He added next,"It's not an agitation, not a challenge that I am throwing someone's way". The one who is cutting hair is a Muslim and I am a Hindu. He just proved that he stands by his words and not everything he says is hogwash.

One user said: "I can only pray for you to get well soon from your mental instability so that the next time you raise an issue on Twitter with some sense and sanity". I am such a secular person. Addressing Nigam as Sir, Grover said that he knew Sonu Nigam would not hurt anyone's religious sentiments ever.

Speaking to ANI news, Quaderi, who is vice president of West Bengal Minority United Council, said that Sonu Nigam did not complete all the conditions that were laid out by him. "Instead of issuing a fatwa, if we send a message across pyaar se, I think it would be better". You have to fight fanaticism.

Ever since Sonu Nigam went about expressing his frustrations of early morning prayers over a loudspeaker from a nearby Mosque on Twitter, Twitterati and media have slammed the artist left, right and center in the past 72 hours. And by the way, Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam. I said in that tweet that I am equally against temples and gurudwaras waking people up with electronic devices such as loudspeakers especially to people who don't even follow the religion. "Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison", he added.
