  • Fatwa Against Sonu Nigam: West Bengal Maulvi Offers Rs 10 Lakh To Shave Singer's Head

Nigam kept his word and then addressed a media conference at his residence as police beefed up security for him. A Kolkata-based cleric has issued a fatwa against Sonu on Tuesday.

To the question raised on his loudspeaker laden performances the artiste stated, "Yes, I sing but my performances are over by 10 pm as per government rules". Everybody has a right to his opinion. Everyone has the right to have an opinion. He also termed the whole practice as "forced religiousness". "If I have done anything wrong, please forgive me".

Sonu said that it was a social issue and not a religious one. The 43-year-old singer's Monday tweet about Islamic prayer calls has created a huge controversy in India and overseas. "Playing loud sound on a speaker is gundagardi for me", Nigam told reporters. Neither I am right wing, nor I am left wing. He talked about Hindu processions where people dance on roads and push each other. I am minority actually.

After the conference got over, he went inside a room to get his head tonsured.

Sonu Nigam, who came under heavy criticism for tweeting against using loudspeakers in religious places of worship, has clarified that his intention was not against any one religion.

Nigam invited the media, saying he will go bald at 2 p.m. "Keep your Rs 10 lakh ready Moulvi", he tweeted. Sonu found himself in trouble after he vent out his frustration over the use of loudspeakers for azaan practiced by Muslims in the country and forced religiousness. "Gundagardi hai bus (it is hooliganism)", he had posted on Twitter.

He was quoted by ANI as saying, "Sonu Nigam has not done all the things I asked for, two out of three things remain unfulfilled". I am shaving my head just to show that the person cutting my hair is a Muslim. There is no animosity. "I don't think I'll be able to sleep for a for weeks now". I don't believe in that. You have to fight fanaticism, you can't be quiet.
