Renowned singer Sonu Nigam has been in the headlines for his comments on Azaan. Many B-Town celebs have commented on the same. The latest to join the band wagon is none other than the Dhakkad rapper Raftaar.
The rapper is known for voicing his opinion and speaking his mind. This time it was no different. Raftaar took to his Instagram story and posted a video with the sound of azaan in the background. Without mincing any words Raftaar wrote, "Insaan azaan ki awaaz se razamand nahi. Matlab ke kalakaar ko apni kal hi pasand nahi."

Prior to this we told you actress Kangana Ranaut said how she loves the sound of azaan.
Here's what Kangana had to say: “See I can’t speak for anyone, but I personally love aazan! When we were shooting for Tanu Weds Manu in Lucknow, I loved the sound of it (aazan), I can only speak for myself! Whatever religious activity, may it be at the gurdwara, or Bhagavad Gita, or aazan, I personally like it a lot! And, I personally like going to places of worship like masjid, temple or church! We go for a Christmas Mass too! Again, as I said, I can only speak for myself, but that’s not to say that what he’s (Sonu Nigam) saying should not be considered, whatever he said is his opinion and he should be respected for that; I think that’s the idea of bringing it to social media, isn’t it, so it should be discussed! Does that answer your question?”
A few days back, Sonu Nigam had shaved his head off after a senior member of a minority council issued a fatwa against Sonu Nigam for his comments over Azaan prayers.
He held a press conference and said, “I didn't speak against any religion... I am not against Azaan, only the use of loudspeakers. I believe in all faiths. This is a social topic, not a religious one," Nigam asserted, before adding, "I have a right to my opinion. Dharam ke naam pe log sharab pee ke naach rahe hote hai. Filmy gaane chala rahe hote hai. Matlab yeh dadagiri nahi hai?"
He added, "We should address this issue seriously. Our children are also part of this country."
Sonu Nigam went on to say, “I want to say this once again, what Aalim bhai is doing is not some agitation. Don't feature it like that. Don't portray it like a challenge. This is not some challenge. This is to tell you that baal kaatne wala Mussalman hai aur jiske baal katwane ka fatwa diya gaya hai woh Hindu hai. There is no animosity. I'm not cutting my hair against my will. I'm telling my Musalmaan bhai to cut my hair. If we interpret the talk of fatwa with love and if you'll understand what I have said then that is wonderful."
Looks like a lot of people from the industry are not happy with Sonu Nigam's stand.sonu nigam goes fully bald after twitter controversy
