Mika Singh blast Sonu Nigam for anti-Azaan comment

The clip, which was shot during the Bhopal schedule of Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal (2016), has her saying, "When the film's shoot wrapped up for the day, I would always wait for the azaan in the evening".

The post reportedly said that "now he (Rai) will only listen to Sonu Nigam songs". Had he done that, he would have followed my other two clauses as well. I stand by my statement that loudspeakers should not be allowed in Mosques & Temples.

Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai actor Saumya Tandon also supported Sonu and tweeted, "You don't need to scream and trouble others to prove how religious you are. Whatever I have said, I said for the love of my religion", he added. Sonu Nigam took up the challenge of tonsuring his head, calling a Muslim barber to do the job. I did not expect this from him. "He has also hurt religious sentiments of many Indians by speaking against "azaan" (Islamic call to worship)".

"God bless everyone. I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning".

He also called for campaigning generally to be suspended, although from midnight on Friday the law says it has to stop anyway. Francois Fillon, who is the conservative candidate, said he would cancel the campaign events he had been planning for Friday.

City-based cleric Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi, who stirred a hornet's nest by announcing a Rs 10-lakh bounty for anyone shaving Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam's head, on Thursday said that he has "no personal enmity" with the singer.

Earlier in this week, Sonu Nigam have sparked controversy regarding his personal views on how Azaan on loudspeakers leads to noise pollution.

On 16 April, Nigam tweeted that he was against "forced religiousness".
