Sonu Nigam's tweet supposedly appears to be in response to some reports that claimed azaan cannot be heard near the singer's apartment in Andheri West and that his tweets on azaan were for mere publicity
On Sonu Nigam's azaan row, Javed Akhtar said, "As far as I think, no matter if it's a Masjid, Mandir, Church or Gurudwara, do your prayers, but it shouldn't disturb anyone else"
Sonu Nigam addressed the media on the controversy over his tweets and said: "You have to fight the fanatics, you can't just hide and comment from Twitter"
Sonu Nigam tweeted: "Dear everyone. Your stand exposes your own IQ. I stand by my statement that loudspeakers should not be allowed in mosques and temple"
