Based on her complaint, police registered a case against four persons, the official added. Krishnamoorthi, 41, had criticised the "aggressive/ear shattering call" for azaan, saying she does not need public loudspeakers to remind her of God. She called it a case of "imposed religiosity", describing the use of loudspeakers as "lowlife" and "

Her tweets were met with both praise and scorn. While some commended her for talking about the issue, others called her an attention-seeker.
Some users even made abusive and sexually-coloured remarks against her, following which she approached suburban Oshiwara police and filed a complaint.

The actress/singer had tweeted "Came home at 4.45 am 2 most aggressive/ear shattering call of azaan."

When a Twitter user posted that it was good to wake up at Brahma Muhurta (early morning) according to Hinduism, the actress replied, "I wake up at Brahmamuhurt of my own accord & do my prayers & riyaz & yoga. I don't need public loudspeakers to remind me of my God or my duty."

She further said she had no problems with azaan or prayers during decent hours. "But to be waking up entire neighbourhood at 5 am is not civilised," she had posted.
