"There was a life before Twitter....and it is platform for abuse," says Sonu Nigam, the reveled singer who recently gave up his right to express in 140 characters on the micro blogging site over controversy surrounding another famous singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya. Although, Mr Nigam doesn't necessarily subscribe to Mr Bhattacharya, he does respect the singer. Mr Nigam, who recently courted another controversy after publicly criticising the Azan recital during dawn, claims that people make religion a 'big deal' and that he wasn't insensitive about the issue. On the growing resentment against Pakistani singers and performers showcasing their talent in India, Mr Nigam opines that art has no boundaries and that only a bridge of friendship can bring the two nations together.
"Sonu Nigam has a good heart. I believe that Sonu Nigam will never do anything to hurt the sentiment of others," said Adnan Sami. However, Mr Sami also added that he's not seen the tweets himself and hence, cannot comment any more.
