Breaking! Sonu Nigam Shaves Off His Head Following Azaan Controversy- See Photos

Sonu Nigam clarifies his "Azaan" remarks, says he is against any form of religious enforcement By Ranjini Maitra After his tweets on Azaan got him in trouble, Sonu Nigam called a press conference and clarified his stand.

Singer Sonu Nigam is now bald, having shaved his head in defiance of a fatwa issued by a Muslim cleric who offered Rs 10 lakh as a reward for tonsuring the singer and garlanding with shoes. Sonu Nigam invited the celebrity hairstylist Aalim to his house in order to shave his head. But he still needs to perform two other deeds to get the reward of Rs 10 lakh. I stand in between.

"I don't think my religion is the best and yours isn't". 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.

Sonu said he did not intend to hurt anyone's sentiments with his tweets but said, "I have a right to my opinion".

Quaderi told ANI, "Sonu Nigam has not done all the things I asked for, two out of the three things remain unfulfilled".

Singer Sonu Nigam has been taking on his detractors head on - quite literally. "The same language of "fatwa" can be communicated in a language of love", Nigam said.

'I'm neither right wing nor left wing; I am in the center. We have to fight fanaticism. On Monday morning, the singer tweeted about waking up to azaan despite not being a Muslim. That's the point I am trying to make. He had raised his concerns over early morning Muslim call-to-prayer asserting that it was unnecessary in the present day, attracting both flak and admiration by different sections. The same thing happens when people dance drunk on the streets during religious processions.
