Sonu Nigam shaved off his head after being at the receiving end of two days of continuous trolling, a police complaint and after being called an anti-Muslim by many. “Azaan is important, not loudspeaker. Arti is important, not loudspeaker,” he had said as he prepared to face a fatwa issued against him by a Muslim cleric who announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh to anybody who’d shave off Nigam’s hair. Twitter meanwhile was abuzz with reactions to his ‘bald’ move.

Much to the shock and general euphoria of people, the singer actually followed through with his intention, and has reasserted his stance that he had actually raised an issue about blaring loudspeakers and not azaan, as it was misinterpreted. Just before going through with the haircut, Nigam said, “I have requested Alim to come. He will shave my head but it isn’t any agitation or challenge. The one who is cutting hair is a Muslim and I am a Hindu. There is no animosity. The same language of fatwa can be communicated in a language of love. Being secular means understanding each other’s problems and not saying ‘I am only right.’”

Soon after the singer made an appearance in his new avatar, Twitterati went berserk not only applauding him for going through with the whole affair, but also taking a stand for what he believes in. Of course, in such a scenario, memes were quick to follow. Sample some of the reactions here.

    3 LoudSpeaker Jihad: Clever, psychiatric, psychological warfare by other means. Arabic-Mantra'z are forced, into bodies & brains, of non-Mppl / un-willing listeners. In day: 3 times. Targets ppl 24x7 / mostly@home: new-born, kids, house-wife, aged-dying. At dawn & dusk: 2 times. Targets also office-goers. Arabic-Mantra'z forced, into, non-Mppl'z permanent memory. Old-dying DONOT want to memorize Arabic-Mantra'z. They desire2recall THEIR GOD ONLY, AS THEY@DEATH. Bombarding them with Arabic-Mantra'z, forcefully makes them: lost mental-peace, abort their-dying-wishes; converts dying-ppl to Islam. Links 2 luvJihad: Females hit very bad: EASILY convert Islam, as mind is fully, forced-familiar from birth, with Arabic-Mantra'z by mulla-majjid-LS. Clever Moula-Mafia-Nexus of Mppl-property-dealers & Mppl-Loud-Speakers: 1. Forced EXODUS of hindu, Christian, sikh, &, to CRASH HOUSE PRICES, &, only Mppl buy near majjid-LS, in DIRT CHEAP, &, create M-ppl-only AREAS.
