So Sonu Nigam has been at the receiving end of severe criticism after his tweets on the ‘Azaan’ went viral. While he just tried to voice his opinion against the loudspeakers being used on the name of religion. His mention of ‘Azaan’ not only won him a label of being an ‘anti-muslim’ but an outraged Muslim cleric also challenged him to shave off his head. Where many thought Sonu is doing this for the sake of publicity, the famous singer further decided to testify his stand by actually going bald. Trust me, this fight is not going to calm down anytime soon. But amidst all the fuss, Shraddha Das, who was last seen in Great Grand Masti, has now put up a Facebook status contradicting Sonu Nigam’s views.
Turns out Shraddha stays in the same locality as Sonu Nigam; however unlike Sonu, she suggests she has never faced any such issues due to the Azaan in the morning. “There are so many police vans and media outside Sonu Nigam’s house. I live right next to him, can see it from my window since the last few days but strangely I have never heard the Azaan in morning at my place. It is hardly audible. N now I hear he just shaved his head and for the first time there is so much traffic outside our homes. “, wrote the actress on Facebook but deleted it soon after. Probably Shraddha doesn’t want to get into trouble over contradicting Sonu’s opinion because there’s already enough being said about him. But the fact she actually tried to negate Sonu’s tweets does raise eyebrows? Is Sonu really doing all of this just for the sake of publicity?

But haters gonna hate, Sonu is not apologetic about his opinion. At the presscon today, he argued, “The portion I wrote that this is gundagradi, you did not mention that one. I said in that tweet that I am equally against temples, and gurdwaras waking people up with electronic devices such as loudspeakers. And especially to people who don’t even follow the religion. I won’t go in front of a Muslim’s house and start singing ‘hare Raam’. I can’t do that. What means prayer to me doesn’t mean prayer to them. All I wanted to say that we should be considerate to each other. I am such a secular person. Neither I am right wing, nor I am left wing. I stand in the middle. People like me are less. Most are right wing, or left wing. Not many stand in the middle. I am standing in middle. I am minority actually.
In case you are living under the sun, Sonu had tweeted against the Azaan saying, “God bless everyone. I’m not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India. And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison? I don’t believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity To wake up people who don’t follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True?”
