His Respons is quite hard-hitting, indeed!
It is no secret, two days ago, Sonu Nigam grabbed attention for all the wrong reasons when he criticised the Azaan call and called it ‘gundagardi’. As expected, he received plenty of flak on Twitter because of his comments.
Moreover, a West Bengal-based Muslim cleric issued fatwa against him and said he would give a reward of Rs 10 Lakhs to anyone who could shave the singer’s hair.
“If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and tour him around the country I personally announce an award of Rs 10 lakh for that person.”
Now, Sonu has responded to the cleric and that too in the boldest way possible. He said that he was ready to shave his hair and asked the cleric to keep the money ‘ready’. In other words, he refused to take the matter seriously.
Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi. https://t.co/5jyCmkt3pm— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 19, 2017

Well, judging by this response, it seems that Sonu is in no mood to back down from a confrontation or apologise for his remarks. As such, it will be worth watching how things play out in the near future.
