Sonu Nigam has become one of the most popular internet sensation thanks to his controversial tweet on azaan. The singer said it was "gundagardi" and just too loud. Speaking on the heated debate, several B-town celebs have come forward to express their opinion.
Randeep took to Twitter to and said “What @sonunigam meant was against #loudspeakers not against a religion .. anyone doing is against #CivicSense and should be curtailed ..”
"As far as I think, no matter if it's a Masjid, Mandir, Church or Gurudwara, whatever is the place, do your prayers, but it shouldn't disturb anyone else," Akhtar said.
“See I can’t speak for anyone, but I personally love aazan!”. I personally like going to places of worship like masjid, temple or church! We go for a Christmas Mass too! Again, as I said, I can only speak for myself, but that’s not to say that what he’s (Sonu Nigam) saying should not be considered, whatever he said is his opinion and he should be respected for that; I think that’s the idea of bringing it to social media, isn’t it, so it should be discussed! Does that answer your question?”, the Queen actress said.
Mika Singh stated that he didn’t agree with Sonu’s remarks.
Big bro I respect u lot as a singer .. I think you should change your house and stay somewhere else instead of changing loud speakers. https://t.co/k83R1zftc0— King Mika Singh (@MikaSingh) April 19, 2017

You don't need to scream and trouble others to prove how religious you are. @sonunigam agree. Let's first learn to respect each other https://t.co/uSen4riR2f— Saumya Tandon (@saumyatandon) April 20, 2017
