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
Sonu Nigam tweeted Wednesday morning that he would have his head shaved himself, adding "keep your 10 lakhs ready maulvi"
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 announced that he will shave his head in the afternoon, in response to a fatwa allegedly issued by a Muslim cleric in West Bengal
"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.
