A few hours ago, Sonu Nigam organised a press conference, in
order to clarify his stand on his controversial 'Azaan' tweets. He
reaffirmed his secular credentials and said it was a social issue,
Later, the singer went on to shave off his head in protest.
According to DNA report, a fatwa has been issued by Syed Sha Atef
Ali Al Quaderi, Vice President of West Bengal Minority United
Council against the singer.
"If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes
around his neck and tour him around the country I personally
announce an award of Rs 10 lakh for that person," DNA quoted Syed
Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi as saying.
"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.
He further added, "People are asking why I said Mohammad and not
Mohammad Sahab in my tweets. Well, I would like to explain that it
is the problem of explaining myself in English language. In Hindi I
will see Krishnaji or Shivji but while speaking in English it
becomes Krishna or Shiva. It was the same when mentioning Mohammad.
My intent was not to slam the prophet in any way."
