Calling the practice “uncivilized”, she tweeted:


In no time, she started to receive responses to her tweet. While some people supported her views, others responded aggressively. She further tweeted:



One Samajwadi Party leader criticized the actress/singer for her comments. Juhi Singh, SP leader, said,

Such irresponsible comments have been made in the past also. I am unable to understand what kind of people they are. I would like to know how does azaan, which otherwise purifies you on hearing, bother her. May be her sleep is more important.


Earlier, Sonu Nigam had taken to Twitter to express his annoyance over the use of loudspeakers in mosques. The incident created a lot of controversy and a Muslim cleric has even announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh to whoever shaves Sonu Nigam’s head.
