Sonu Nigam’s tweet on again created a whirlwind of noise on social media. His tweet launched a series of opinions from actors and celebrities. Now, actor Randeep Hooda has come to the defence of Sonu and said that Sonu’s tweet was against loudspeakers and not against a religion. Randeep took to Twitter and shared, “What @sonunigam meant was against #loudspeakers not against a religion .. anyone doing is against #CivicSense and should be curtailed.” Actor Anupam Kher also showed his support to Sonu. Though Anupam didn’t directly express his views on the matter, his tweet was a hint enough. Anupam retweeted an ANI post of Sonu Nigam after singer got his head shaved and wrote, “Bande mein hai dum. Jai Ho Sonu Nigam.”

Maatr actor Raveena Tandon also spoke on the issue and reiterated that there is no place for fanaticism in India. “If we look at the current scenario of our country — whether you look at people of any religion — fanaticism is wrong. We have always lived in a secular and strong country and we should be allowed to do so. If Diwali firecrackers are being controlled, I promote that. But it doesn’t mean I am becoming communal. It depends on each person’s individual thinking what they think and what they find.”

Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai actor Saumya Tandon also supported Sonu and tweeted, “You don’t need to scream and trouble others to prove how religious you are. @sonunigam agree. Let’s first learn to respect each other.” The actor later clarified that her tweet wasn’t about a particular religion and tweeted, “And it’s not about a particular religion, I don’t support Ganesh Visarjan either, which spreads water pollution.”

Sonu was woken up by azaan on Monday morning and he expressed his annoyance on Twitter. He wrote on Twitter, “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.” The singer recently shaved off his head after a cleric announced Rs 10 lakh as reward for any one who would shave off Sonu’s head, make him wear a garland of old shoes and parade him around the country.

        Sad ones tweet has to be explained. Let this be a lesson to all celebrities to be cautious with the words. It could have been avoided without the use of words Aazan and gundagardi. If it was so intended.

          Sony nikal has a right to express his views...there is nothing wrong with it...but the way he put his opinion was wrong...the way he formed his words in the tweet gave some sort of a signal that more than having problem with he has a problem with the concerned religion...like he used word like "gundagardi" & "cacophony"...other thing is that this came from an artist like Sonu not an who is very soft spoken and tolerant by nature...and he has never raised his voice about so many wrong things which are going on in the society...What about Beef ban...where is my right to eat what I want....isnt this gundagardi???

            would appreciate if events like killing of dalits and minorities and making Yoga compulsory is also shown as forced religiousness
