Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The Rant Across The Border!

I think by now you are all aware of the Sonu Nigam twitter rant. For those who don’t know, Indian singer Sonu Nigam shared a series of tweets describing how the Azaan, disturbs his sleep every morning. The tweets sparked a controversy and people from all over the world including Pakistan reacted to this gratuitous statement.

He said the same for other religions as well:

However, that doesn’t justify what he said, because he picked on a really sensitive topic and that too in an unexpected way! He managed to hurt the sentiments of Muslims from all over the world.

There were numerous reactions from both sides of the border.

His ‘forced religiousness’ statement was slammed by some yet praised by others. In midst of the controversy, filmmaker Pooja Bhatt posted a tweet in favour of the morning prayer.

Just when the debate was raging, a few old videos of Indian actors respecting the prayers went viral.

In the video, Priyanka Chopra is seen describing the Magrib Azaan time as her ‘favourite time.’

Here, Salman Khan was at the launch of Bigg Boss 8 and while interacting with media, a nearby mosque gave a call for Azaan. And the actor called for a break, the moment he heard the Azaan.

There aren’t many reactions from Pakistani celebrities, and this is probably the only one I found. Here’s what Syed Jibran shared on his Instagram handle.

After receiving backlash on social media for his statement regarding Azaan. Still standing by his statements, this is what Sonu Nigam shared today:

Islam is undoubtedly one of the most peaceful religions of the world. The Azaan is an Islamic call to prayer and a symbol of Muslim presence.
