This English News Anchor Has A ‘Brilliant’ Solution For Anyone Who Has A Problem With Azaan

Published on 26 April, 2017 at 3:53 pm By

Zakka Jacob is the executive editor of CNN-News18. He is one of the star anchors of the channel and has been compared to Arnab Goswami for the style in which he hosts his show.

This clip might convince you that he is fast filling the void created with the departure of Goswami from TV.

So when the controversy over Sonu Nigam’s clip was raging on social media, Jacob invited filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri for a panel discussion on the same.

Of course, Nigam had his own supporters and critics. While many claimed that Nigam was not right in criticizing azaan, there were voices which extended their support to the singer for raising the issue of loudspeakers and “forced religiousness”.

On Jacob’s debate, however, something unique happened. This is what Jacob had as an advice for Agnihotri who was siding with Nigam.

 

What a logic! This is perhaps the best thing to do in these times for anyone bothered with the azaan coming from loudspeakers.

“Move your house. Go to some other locality,” said Jacob.

Of course, Jacob invited ‘some’ criticism:

 

By Jacob’s logic people should not even live close to any mosque, and since mosques can come up anywhere in India, people must either bear with any kind of “disturbance” of just move away peacefully.

By that logic, people should leave India if there is no space left anymore to move away from the “noise” that “disturbs” them.

And if we extend this logic to secular territories, people should also move their houses or leave localities if Jagrata bothers them.

Anyway, this is what Agnihotri said on the same:

 

But MSM is not dying, Mr. Agnihotri! On the contrary, it is thriving and moving up the ladder of ‘logical sanity’, if you would, with each passing day.

Now someone give Jacob an award for finding the perfect solution to all communal issues!
