Sonu Nigam has angered several of his fans and followers with an insensitive tweet on Monday morning. The singer complained of ‘forced religiousness’ on being woken up to the sound of azaan (a mosque’s call to prayer) even though he is not a Muslim.
“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,” he wrote.
The tweet has not gone down well with a lot of his fans and followers. “I am a fan of urs but this was definitely a bullshit statement. U gotta respect other religions beliefs. It’s a democratic country,” wrote one.
