Sonu Nigam Has An Epic Response To Maulvi Issuing Fatwa Against Him

Sonu-Nigam-Syed-Sha-Atef-Ali-Al Quaderi

I had mentioned a garland of old shoes and that he would have to roam around the entire nation. Everybody has a right to his opinion. Everyone has the right to have an opinion. The comedian took to Twitter and said that he knows Sonu personally and that he won't hurt anyone's religious sentiments ever.

His intention, he pointed out, was not to hurt anybody's sentiments. He considers it a social issue, not a religious one.

The singer has often been credited for being adequately candid but also been called out for his bluntness. "If I use a loudspeaker to sing at midnight, then you have the right to object too", he said. Mr Nigam said his tweets have been shown in a bad light, but he is not against Islam. Adding that being a celebrity, it is even more hard to voice one's opinion, he said, "People feel that they have a right to their opinions, but celebs don't".

I am a secular person. People might tag you negative or positive, but that can't stop you.

Gossip-mongers argued that shaving his head off would not get Sonu INR 1 million as the cleric had demanded to tie a garland of shoes around his neck as well. And it does not involve any agitation or challenge.

Kolkata: After Sonu Nigam shaves off his head in Mumbai and challenges the fatwa, Shahi Imam of Kolkata Syed Md Nurur Rahman Barkati on Wednesday flays the singer, saying that Sonu Nigam has "mental problem and he is suffering from depression".

Meanwhile, countering the fatwa the singer announced that he will shave his head himself today at 2 pm Indian time.

Speaking to ANI news, Quaderi, who is vice president of West Bengal Minority United Council, said that Sonu Nigam did not complete all the conditions that were laid out by him.

He has even called a press conference today as security is being beefed up at his house.

The singer said he wanted to respond to the "fatwa" in the language of love. There is no animosity. I am a believer but I don't think my religion is the best but yours isn't. I don't believe in that. We have to fight fanaticism. "You can't be quiet", he added. I want to tell them that in English we write Shiva and not Shiv Ji.
