Interestingly, accepting maulvi’s challenge, Nigam shaved off his hair and even organised a press meet to inform the world about it.
And Press is welcome to participate at 2pm.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 19, 2017

Notably, all this incident started when Nigam was woken up by the sound of Azaan on Monday. He was so irritated by the sound that he wrote I am not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by Azaan. He even said when will this forced religiousness stop in India?
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— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 16, 2017
