Sonu Nigam's tweets have opened a debate on Twitter, with several siding with and against the singer. Some have pointed out those labelling the singer 'anti-Muslim' that it is not Islam he is objecting to, but the use of loudspeakers in particular. 'Sonu Nigam' is currently the top trend on Twitter.
