It was about Loudspeaker, and only loudspeaker. Too bad that they r on Mosques, Temples & Gurudwaras, thus the reference. Let's be human 1st https://t.co/JDwUHvqDnW— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
The singer took to his Twitter handle on Tuesday night to explain his earlier tweets where he spoke about the problems in waking up to the early morning Azaan.
His series of tweets:
And dear Everyone, for those who are tainting my Tweets anti Muslim, tell me 1 place where I have said anything related, & I'll apologize.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
When I am talking about Loudspeakers, I did mention Temples and Gurudwaras too. Is it that hard to comprehend? Loosen up guys.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
Other than these, the singer went on clarifying himself, the whole day, from debates and mud-slinging on Twitter.
Sonu, who was woken up to the sound of Azaan early in the morning, took social media by storm after terming the practice as “forced religiousness,” on April 17.
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
I don't believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity To wake up people who don't follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True?— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 17, 2017
