The singer said that he was not against any religion and that his tweets had been misconstrued. “I am a secular person, it was not about azaan, it was about the loud sound,” clarified the singer to the press and added “Playing loud sounds on speaker is gundagardi for me.”
The singer argued that he had also mentioned in his tweets about Gurdwaras and Temple misusing loudspeakers but no one had paid attention to that. “I can’t write an essay on Twitter. I also wrote a tweet on temples and gurudwara which no one reflected upon.”
Calling Mohammad Rafi his guru, the singer said that he was a secular person who had visited Ajmer Sharif and Pushkar Temple in the past. “My trainer was a Muslim. It’s not about my tweet, it’s about the thinking. I’ve taken up a social issue here not spoken on a religious topic,” said Sonu.
On Monday, Sonu, in a series if tweets complained about ‘forceful religiousness’ and had termed morning azaan being played on loudspeakers as gundagardi.
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— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 16, 2017
And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison?— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 17, 2017
