Sonu Nigam shaves off his hairs in response to fatwa


On Wednesday afternoon, he addressed the press and, with cameras present, had hairstylist Aalim Hakim rid him of his hair.

West Bengal Minority United Council, vice president, Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi had announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for the person who shaves off Sonu Nigam's head.

And the singer seems to have taken up the challenge himself for the Rs 10 lakh.

Sonu Nigam took up the challenge, calling a Muslim barber to do the job. He told NDTV that Sonu Nigam, with his shaved head and a garland of shoes, must also visit every Indian house.

In one of his arguments against using loudspeakers for prayer calls, Sonu Nigam said that Muhammad did not have electricity when "he made Islam". "If we interpret the talk of fatwa with love and if you'll understand what I have said then that is wonderful".

Say no investigation till they receive complaint over singer's tweet.

Ever since Sonu Nigam went about expressing his frustrations of early morning prayers over a loudspeaker from a nearby Mosque on Twitter, Twitterati and media have slammed the artist left, right and center in the past 72 hours. "I am a believer, not an atheist..."

"God bless everyone. I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning".

All said and done, the "bald look" will definitely be added to Nigam's list of "cool" looks. You have to fight fanaticism. My opinion is in temple, masjid and gurudwara, loudspeakers are not religious necessities. Jis insaan ne poori zindagi Mohammad Rafi saab ko apna pita maana hai, jiske guru ka poora naam Ustad Gulam Mustafa Khan sahib hai, jiske drivers Musalman rahe hain, abhi tak jiske trainer Musalman hain, jiske sabse nazdeeki dost Wajid bhai hai, jinhone mere khilaaf bola. Same way, I have the right to my opinion. I am such a secular person.

He was thrown a question over the use of loudspeakers in his concerts to which he replied that he conducts concerts in permissible time limits. "I think the issue is of freedom of expression and we should not paint it with a communal brush".
