Sonu Nigam: When the singer courted controversy

Sonu Nigam: When the singer courted controversy

For the uninitiated, here's what Nigam had tweeted a couple of days ago - "God bless everyone".

Sonu addressed a press conference at his residence in Mumbai on April 19 and made a decision to answer every question about his tweets controversy. Everyone has right to opinion. By the end of her detailed post, Renuka said while Sonu has the right to put forward his opinions, but the "manner and tone" in which he said was not right.

He took to twitter and said that he is not speaking of any religion but speaking about the loudspeakers.

"My intention was just to talk on a social topic and not a religious topic", he added.

It's happening: Watch April the giraffe finally give birth
More than 1.2 million people were tuned in to the park's stream on Saturday morning as the much-anticipated birth began. Remember, the Giraffe Cam was not set-up to capture an immediate birth - it was set-up to capture a process.

Even Singer Mika Singh slammed Nigam and asked him to shift to somewhere else. "The rally will be attended by people across all faiths", Quaderi said. "I am not anti-Muslim, I consider myself secular". She tweeted, "People will misunderstand your tweet n give it a communal tinge, only those who know you will know you mean not to stoke a fire". "So, I am the minority here". Responding to the reports of a fatwa issued against him, Sonu later got his head shaved.

Referring to Sonu's shaving off his hair today and conducting a press conference, Barkati said he was doing it out of depression. "Today at 2 pm Aalim will come to my place and shave my head". Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi ... "Gundagardi hai bus." His tweets created a storm with many celebs both attacking and defending Sonu for his statements.

As reporters started screaming and howling in the press conference, private security guards jumped in to control the situation. To be precise, Ahmed Patel said what I wanted to say in a better way. On Monday morning, the singer had complained that he was woken up by the sound of Azaan from a local mosque, which, according to him, was "gundagardi".
