Sonu Nigam had posted a series of tweets on April 17 saying though he is not a Muslim, he was woken up by the morning Azaan and asked when would this "forced religiousness" end in India?
Though Sonu Nigam spoke about loudspeakers atop temples and gurudwaras too, his outburst was construed as being against 'azaan' and Islam. He was also slammed on the social media for venting out against azaans.
A case was also filed against the after he took his annoyance to Twitter. Sonu Nigam was booked under section 153A and 295A of the Indian Penal Code.
