Youths stabbed after supporting Sonu Nigam’s views about loudspeakers at religious places

Days after Sonu Nigam made his tweet complaining against the use of loudspeakers at religious places like mosques, gurudwaras and temples, two youths in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh were grievously injured after a fight ensued over a Facebook post which supported Sonu’s stance.

Reports claimed that Shivam Rai a resident of Ujjain had posted his support for Sonu on Facebook and also declared that henceforth he would only listen to his songs. This incensed some muslim youths from Begumgunj and a verbal spat ensured.

He was also allegedly threatened over the phone by these youths named Mohammad Nagori and Faizan Khan. Shivam then reportedly went to his friend’s birthday party and according to the police the youths too reached the party to attack Shivam and his friends with knives. After seeing them, Shivam fled the scene but two of his friends were gravely injured and were rushed to a nearby hospital.

The Hindustan Times also reported this story but the sequence of events was slightly different. The report quotes Shivam Rai as saying:

“Later, they asked me to meet them in Freeganj area. When I reached there with my friend, Ayush Shreewas, they attacked us with knives,”

A case has reportedly been registered against the attacking youths in the Madhavnagar police station for attempted murder under section Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code.

The controversy over Sonu’s tweet has been rising from the past few days. On Wednesday a Maulvi had announced a bounty of Rs 10 lakh for whoever shaved Sonu Nigam’s head. The maulvi though refused to pay Sonu Nigam after he voluntarily shaved his head as he (Maulvi) had made other demands which remained unfulfilled.
