Cartoon on Sonu Nigam Vs Azaan

Singer, Sonu Nigam tweet about Azaan waking him up in the mornings has become a buzz word on social media. Some calling it publicity stunt. Some calling it genuine issue. Some feel Sonu Nigam is right as he is talking about the ‘decibel rules’ – the noise pollution norms of the nation being rejected because of early morning Azaans.

No matter what, the way the point was put across cannot be appreciated as it sounds rude and demeaning. All the more, with BJP government taking over states and nation in polls, some feel it is indirect way of imposing ‘Hindutva’ on minorities ( muslims, mostly ).

More so, because in the name of faith all parties in India take law casually and the administration normally avoids hurting ‘public sentiments’. So that is the way it has been continuing and surely shall remain so as to avoid social media clash of clans, at least. Blaming followers of any one faith is partiality for sure. 

This is a matter of self-consciousness for individuals, leaders of faiths and the society as in whole to realize where to draw lines. The followers of faiths should also respect the atheists in the nation as they might get bugged up by sounds of Azaan and Aarti equally, who knows. And India gives equal rights to them too.

On a lighter note, what Sonu Nigam can do now is he can start doing ‘riaz’ during the hours of Azaan to keep his hands occupied on harmonium and not on mobile to tweet. Will solve the issue, if at all it is. Again it is just a suggestion!

    I would like to disagree with you. If Sonu Nigam has made a statement, why drag BJP into it? Second, Sonu Nigam as a free citizen has every right to voice if he feels inconvenienced. No motive should be imputed to his utterances. We cannot be so politically correct all the time. Besides, blaring of music from pooka pandals in West Bengal, Bursting of crackers during Deepavali, or all night long jagrata are equally disturbing. Not many of us have courage to speak against them. Even if we do, who is listening? Sonu Nigam has a big fan following, so his tweet became viral. What would you say, if Sonu had said the same thing about all night long neighbourhood Jagrata?

      Dear friend, I was clarifying view points put by sickulars. My opinion is as yours. He has the right to voice it out wherever he deems fit. Sickulars on tweeter say he is trying to please BJP.
      For Jagrata if he would have said anything he would not have gone viral rather Jagrata speakers would have been ordered to lower down voice. Coz its minorities and its India .. Sonu gets fatwa in return and no Khans , no award wapasi gang , no economists say this too is freaking Intolerance. Who gives rights to these people to issue fatwas ?? I am mostly sarcastic and bad with expressing in words. So probably could not keep my point across. 😀
