Earlier, Saath Nibhana Saathiya actor, Mohammad Nazim tweeted against him. Actress Pooja Bhatt made a comment by saying this -
Singer Mika Singh too tried to make a remark and advised him not to say things like this. He made him remember the times they sang together in Jagrans. He signed off by saying that temples, mosques and Gurudwaras stand for a lot many honorable things like charity, langars than just loudspeakers.

However, after a lot of trolls, Sonu Nigam tweeted -
Dear everyone. Your stand exposes your own IQ. I stand by my statement that loudspeakers should not be allowed in Mosques & Temples. Period— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
And dear Everyone, for those who are tainting my Tweets anti Muslim, tell me 1 place where I have said anything related, & I'll apologize.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
After all the explanation Sonu gave by tweeting that he never mentioned mosque or anything related, he only aimed at loud speakers and the problems caused by it, suddenly a maulvi, Vice president of West Bengal Minority United Council, Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi comes up to challenge him. Yes, you read this right.
It was about Loudspeaker, and only loudspeaker. Too bad that they r on Mosques, Temples & Gurudwaras, thus the reference. Let's be human 1st https://t.co/JDwUHvqDnW— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
When I am talking about Loudspeakers, I did mention Temples and Gurudwaras too. Is it that hard to comprehend? Loosen up guys.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 18, 2017
The Maulvi has said that Rs 10 lakhs would be given to the person who shaves Sonu Nigam's head and put a garland of torn shoes and his neck and takes him around in the country.
Due to this mess and controversy created against Sonu Nigam, the security has been tightened outside his house and Mumbai Police is alert to safeguard him.
Now, being strong and bold enough, Sonu Nigam accepted the challenge and decided to shave off his head. He called a press conference and shaved his head in front of the media. He tweeted -
Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi. https://t.co/5jyCmkt3pm— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 19, 2017
