Azaan, not loudspeakers,essential for namaz: Ahmed Patel backs Sonu Nigam
His tweet comes a day after Sonu Nigam was brought in the dock for saying that he was woken up by the Azaan
Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Tuesday backed singer Sonu Nigam, saying that azaan is important but not loudspeakers.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Patel wrote: “Azaan is an essential ingredient for Namaz. In today’s day of modern technology, loudspeakers aren’t.”
His tweet comes a day after Sonu Nigam was brought in the dock for saying that he was woken up by the Azaan. “God bless everyone. I’m not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India,” he had tweeted on Monday. The singer has been facing severe criticism for his statement since then.
