The singer also invited celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim to cut his hair, To protest a fatwa issued against him, He gave a shock to everyone by shaving his head today.
A fatwa was issued against the singer by a Maulvi which read whoever shaves his head will get Rs 10 lakh.
As soon as his tweet came, many people agreed with Sunil Grover and supported the ace singer Sonu Nigam. He was reacting to a Muslim cleric announcing a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anyone who will shave off his hair.
Nigam's chain of twitter remarks seemed to have roused a Muslim organization with a cleric announcing a personal award on the singer. The 43-year-old singer's Monday tweet about Islamic prayer calls has created a huge controversy in India and overseas. "Sonu Nigam has not done all the things I asked for, two out of the three things remain unfulfilled". Just like Muslims wake up early to say namaz, Hindus too wake up early in the morning to do Surya Namaskar.More news: Stock in the Spotlight: Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD)
Bollywood singer Mika Singh who is in United States recently has gone live to convey his message over Sonu Nigam's stoked controversy over early morning Azaan (mosque prayer) while dubbing it as cacophonous and intimidation in nature. He also said on Twitter that it is "forced religiousness". "Being secular means understanding each other's problems and not saying 'I am only right'".
In a series of tweets on Monday, the 43-year-old had described as hooliganism the use of loudspeakers for broadcasting sermons and calls to prayers.
Further clarifying his stance, Nigam wrote: "And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam..." I said in that tweet that I am equally against temples, and gurdwaras waking people up with electronic devices such as loudspeakers. The singer heavily criticized the practices of religious sectors and organizations of booming their prayers, much to the agony of people who are voluntarily subjected to it. "Why then? Honest? True?" he tweeted.
