To this, Sonu asked Wajid to "stop being a Muslim and simply be a citizen of India."
Wajid then responded to Sonu's tweet and said, "Bhai @sonunigam I'm proud of my faith n my identity as an Indian. If it was abt loudspeakers then it should've been only abt loudspeaker."

Earlier Sonu had expressed his anger over being "woken up by the Azaan in the morning" despite him not being a Muslim. He later clarified that it was about loudspeakers and that he didn't intend to attack any particular religion. While many agreed and maintained a healthy debate over the use of loudspeakers at praying places, some criticised the singer for targeting a particular religion.
Many other celebrities including Sunil Grover, Vivek Aginihotri and Aman Yatan Verma voiced their opinions on Twitter.
