A few days ago, Sonu Nigam stirred a storm in the country and rightfully so (that’s what we and a million others think- You can read the full story here). While his opinion on Azaam and LOUDSPEAKERS stands divided among different religions, it has seemingly worked towards uniting people of the same faith and ideologies! His tweets and his ‘bald’ move of shaving his head has somewhat unsettled the perpetual ‘noise’ creators as well as Jihadist, Fatwa-issuing Mullahs.
Post this episode, we hear new fatwas being issues by Muslim clerics. First it was Mullah Quaderi from West Bengal (who is now asking Sonu to complete all the conditions–of parading the country with a garland of torn chappals–before claiming 10 lakh) and now it is another who has threatened to issue a fatwa against Sonu.
Head Mullah of Tipu Sultan Masjid, Syed Barkati gave an interview to DNA and said this, and I quote–
“I FULLY SUPPORT WHAT QUADERI HAD SAID YESTERDAY AND IF SONU DOESN’T MEND HIS WAYS I WOULD BE THE NEXT ONE TO DECLARE A FATWA AGAINST HIM.”
He also said–
“I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT HE SUFFERS FROM DEPRESSION. TODAY HE HAS BEEN ASKED TO SHAVE HIS HAIR AND HE DID SO. TOMORROW SOMEONE WILL ASK HIM TO TAKE OFF HIS PANTS AND HE WILL OBLIGE.”
Sonu, who doesn’t shy away from voicing his opinions, won’t take long to respond to this Jihadist Mullah as well. What do you think? Let us know your views on the entire episode.
