Sonu Nigam azaan row: Parineeti Chopra to Mika Singh to Sunil Grover, who said what

The Indian Express Logo The Indian Express | Slide 1 of 12: Sonu Nigam woke up to controversy on Monday when he called morning azaan blaring over loudspeakers religious ‘gundagardi'. It did not take time for the nation to slam the ace singer for his words. Sonu, over a series of tweets, expressed outrage on how following a religion in India is not by choice but by force. "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.... And by the way, Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison? 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? Gundagardi hai bus.”
