Sonu Nigam was there in news about mosques and azaan when he tweeted, ”God bless everyone. I’m not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India.” ”And by the way, Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison? I don’t believe in any temple or Gurudwara using electricity to wake up people who don’t follow the religion. Why then? Honest? True?. Gundagardi hai bus.”
After Akthar’s comment, Twitterati’s came up with different perceptions on this take and had a point-blank talk.

Some questioned why he is limiting it to mosques
Why only places of worship …? Why not night weddings and political events…. can you please answer

And the late realisation also being questioned
Azan is call for prayer and for your information hardly people wake up due to azaan , now you are saying this after few years you will be saying to do forbidden works too need no mention
