Sonu Nigam shaved off his head today after interacting with the media after a maulvi from West Bengal issued a fatwa against him and announced a Rs 10 lakh reward for anyone who shaves his head. The singer met the media and clarified his stand once again saying he has a problem only with loudspeakers and not with any particular religion.

Scroll down to watch Sonu Nigam make the point at his residence before shaving off his head.

The person who has all his life taken Mohammad Rafi as his father, whose guru has been Ustad Gulam Mustafa, if you think that person is anti-Muslim, then it’s not my problem. It is your problem.

Hairstylist Hakim Alim also clarified Sonu Nigam’s stand.


But now, a complaint has been filed against the singer before CJM Panipat (Haryana) under various sections for his ‘azaan’ tweets.

What next?
