AURANGABAD (Web Desk): A written complaint has been filed against Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra for posting anti-Azaan tweets.
According to PTI, the complaint has been filed by Nadeem Rana, head of a local religious organisation, in Jinsi police station.
“We have received a written complaint against the singer. However, no offence has been registered so far in this regard,” Amitesh Kumar, Commissioner of Police, Aurangabad told PTI. “We are studying this complaint and further course of action will be decided accordingly,” he said.
Sonu Nigam on Monday aroused a fury when he posted a series of statements against Azaan terming it ‘forced religiousness’. However; he received flak over his comments as people called him ‘disrespectful’ towards the religion.
Later, a maulvi issued fatwa and announced Rs10 lac for any person who shaves Sonu Nigam’s head and places garland of old torn shoes around his neck.
However; the singer himself stepped in and shaved off his head. He also demanded the cleric to pay promised INR 1 million who refused and said that they will give the reward only when the singer does rest two-garland of old torn shoes and tour around the country.
