Sonu Nigam has been courting controversies for quite some time now. From his tweets referring to loudspeakers in the mosques to his recent Twitter spat with Sona Mohapatra, Sonu has constantly hit the headlines.
In a recent conversation with Hindustan Times, Sonu opened up about the controversies surrounding him. Addressing the #MeToo movement and his Twitter scuffle with Sona Mohapatra, he said, "I am happy that a movement like #MeToo has come up. They (sexual offenders) will think 100 times before even approaching someone, and yes it was a needed movement. But you don’t have the right to ban or punish someone. The law has to do that.”
"I am telling you the day society decides to start passing judgments, instead of the law, there will be terror in society," added Sonu.
Sonu also questioned Sona's plea to Arvind Kejriwal to cancel Kailash Kher's show. "You have said Kailash Kher can’t do a show. Fair enough. But then you are writing letters to Arvind Kejriwal. Why is she doing that? Who gives her the right to decide that a singer cannot do a show? Then what’s the difference between you and Islamic terrorists? This is a kind of terrorism that you are deciding who works with whom?"
He further explained calling Sona his 'friend's wife'. "If I know a person, a wife through a friend, that’s how I will refer to her? Sona is not my friend. Ram Sampath is my soul brother. I know her through Ram. So I called her my friend’s wife."
Commenting on his engagement with controversies, he said that he will be honest with his answers. "The day I know I speak wrong, I will shut up automatically about it," concluded Sonu.
