Sonu Nigam has had his fair share of controversies in recent times, with his statements on the use of loudspeakers for Azaan. Now, it looks like he might have drawn the ire of a terrorist outfit for his comments. According to reports, Sonu is on the hit list of terrorist organization Lashkar-E-Taiba. Apparently, Maharashtra State Intelligence Department has advised Mumbai Police to notch up the security for the singer and two BJP leaders who might be the targets of the terrorist group.
Sonu could possibly be attacked or assassinated at any public event or promotional activity. As a result, Mumbai Police is considering beefing up security around the singer. Looks like the embers of the controversy surrounding his statements still refuse to die down.
Sonu Nigam rocked the headlines for his comments on the use of loudspeakers for azaan (Muslim prayers) earlier this year. The singer even shaved off his head in defiance of a ‘fatwa’ issued by Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi of the West Bengal Minority Council.
Now, the Bollywood singer reportedly said that back then he even mentioned about temples and gurudwaras but only comments on azaans were highlighted. He stated that religion was also added to the issue. According to the reports, he feels people in India don’t try to understand the meaning of words and try to look into it deeply.
