Sonu Nigam had yesterday tweeted against noise pollution caused by religious places such as mosques, temples and gurudwaras. However, since he mentioned azaan in mosques first, he was attacked and abused by trolls and so-called liberals.
The attack against the Bollywood singer has continued unabated since yesterday with senior journalist Shekhar Gupta (of ‘coup’ fame) insulting him as “out of work” singer and anti-Modi journalist Rana Ayyub spreading lies about him:

Emboldened by such attacks by people who control the narrative, a Maulvi in West Bengal issued a fatwa and announced a prize of 10 lakh rupees for any person who shaves the head of Sonu Nigam. Shaving off head of someone is seen as an act of humiliation in many parts of the country.
But Sonu Nigam has now tried to checkmate this Maulvi by announcing that he will get his head shaved himself:
Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi. https://t.co/5jyCmkt3pm

The singer has also called for a press conference at 2 PM today where he could perhaps showcase his shaved head and demand money from the Maulvi for abiding by his fatwa.
However, the Maulvi might not pay anything because he wanted more than just shaving.
“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,” Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi, vice president of West Bengal Minority United Council had said.
No worries Sonu, at least you made your point, and thank your stars that the Maulvi didn’t order money for your beheading.
And yes, be ready to be mocked by so-called liberals who will still attack you for “drama” and “publicity stunt” instead of attacking the Maulvi.
