When Sonu Nigam Spoke Out Against the Azaan……

Sonu Nigam has shot back in the news with his tweet about Azaan’s being played on loudspeakers in the early morning which disturbs his sleep.
And while the Musanghis are going all red in the face with this comment, the Bhakts are jumping up and down to the extent of recommending Sonu for the next Bharat Ratna.
But wait a minute, Sonu has not just spoken against the Azaan. In his very next tweets he also speaks against Temples and Gurudwaras and any other religious place which is using loudspeakers to disturb people who dont follow any religion.
So there you go Bhakts, you might have to stick to Abhijit Bhattacharya as you singing icon, forever. Too bad.
Personally, I dont see anything wrong what he has said.
Whether it is the early morning Azaan or the late night Jagrans, I have never understood the need to use loudspeakers.
Imagine someone living close to a Mandir and a Masjid at the same time. He will stay up due to the Jagran music till almost 3:00 am and will be woken up at 5:00 am by the sounds of Azaan !!!
Do you guys really think that your God is so deaf that you need to blare out your prayers to Him for Him to hear them??
So how about we stop the use of loudspeakers for all religious festivities. It is enough that you block the roads and create a traffic mess while celebrating those festivals, you can atleast wrap it up early.
