A lot has been said since Sonu Nigam tweeted about the Azaan waking him up every morning. While actors like Divyanka Tripathi and Sunil Grover supported him and said he didn’t mean to harm anyone’s religious sentiments, Aly Goni slammed the actor for making such insensitive comments. Here’s what he said in an interview with Pinkvilla.
I have been born and brought up in the city of temples. Where I use to live in Jammu, there were a lot of temples near my house and just one mosque. Every morning, Aarti used to go on in temples with a lot of bells ringing and bhajans being sung, and that was my alarm to wake up. I used to feel so good every morning to wake up to such positive energy. I still remember whenever there use to be Mata ka jagrata at the Azaan time in the morning, the jagrata people use to stop for 5 mins for the Azaan to take place peacefully. That’s called respect, what we have for each other and will always have. What all Sonu Nigam has said, I don’t think so a famous personality like him should make such statements. He should not play with anyone’s sentiments.
