Singer Sonu Nigam recently got upset after being woken up early morning by the Azaan on the loudspeaker. In his anger he chose to express it on Social media as ' Forced Religiousness' in India . Little did he realise that he had touched upon a sensitive topic and will give Twitterati's a new topic for debate.
Sonu Nigam's trend had quite a few people who took on to the issue including actor film maker Pooja Bhatt. In response to Sonu Nigam's tweet, she replied, ' I wake up each morning to the sound of Church bells & the Azaan in a quiet by lane of Bandra. I light aggarbattis and salute the spirit of India. " He further touched upon the debate when he wrote that God bless everyone I am not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India? Taking the point further he compared religion with gundagardi and wrote by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam. and if temples and gurudwara do not use electricity to wake up people who don't follow the religions, why then ? Be honest ?
