Sonu Nigam ‘Azaan’ tweet row: Here's what Kangana Ranaut has to say

New Delhi: Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam's tweets on 'Azaan' are witnessing mixed response on the social media. Now, even the celebrities have stepped into this debate and they are putting forward their opinions about the same. Recently, actress Kangana Ranaut also broke her silence on the much-talked-about matter.

"I can't speak for anyone but I really love Azaan... Even when we were shooting in Lucknow I loved the sound of it. I'm speaking for myself. Be it any religious activity, be it any gurudwaras, temples or mosques I love them. I visit all these places. We even go for Christmas mass," PTI quoted the 'Queen' diva as saying.

She further said, "but that's not to say what he is saying shouldn't be considered, that's his opinion and he should be respected for that. And that's the idea of bringing it on social media so that it can be discussed."

Nigam’s tweets about the use of loudspeakers at places of worship triggered a massive controversy earlier this week. The film industry still stands divided on this issue. The singer received severe backlash from many twitter users and also garnered support from a number of people.

He had tweeted: “God bless everyone. I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India. And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison? I don't believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity To wake up people who don't follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True? (sic)”.
