Seems like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today!
Hate is pouring in for the singer over the insensitive comment:
There was no firecrackers during Ramayan time. So, why are we using firecrackers that causes noise n air pollution now?

I am a fan of urs but this was definitely a bullshit statement. U gotta respect other religions beliefs. It's a democratic country.

And while some stand with Nigam, more are condemning by the minute:
Loudspeaker azaan aims to dominate the public space to assert superiority over kaffirs. Same aim in blocking roads:https://t.co/BteYukzG7Q

Whereas this guy just wants everyone to be happy:
Dont let rules vanish your humanity. How easily voice can be projected, but recklessly, it does hurt people. Life is too short to be angry ?
