No need to fuel this anymore: Sonu Nigam on Azaan row

Noted playback singer Sonu Nigam, who received flak for his 'Azaan' tweet where he had voiced his opinion on the use of loudspeakers at places of worship, has appealed the people not to "fuel the controversy" anymore. The 43-year-old singer took to social media to appeal the people not to stretch the issue anymore and to move on. "Guys, in favour of me and in opposition, let's agree to agree and disagree. No need to fuel this anymore. Look ahead and move on. Prayers," he tweeted. For the unversed, the singer blew up a controversy when he lashed out at 'forced religiousness' in India after being woken up by the 'azaan' from a mosque near his home. His tweet drew mixed reactions. While many celebrities came out in support of the singer; few others slammed him for the same or remained tight lipped.
