A written complaint was filed on Wednesday against singer Sonu Nigam in Marathwadas Aurangabad over his tweet criticising of the use of loudspeakers for broadcasting sermons and calls to prayers, police said.
"We have received a written complaint against the singer. However, no offence has been registered so far in this regard," Amitesh Kumar, Commissioner of Police, Aurangabad told PTI.
One Nadeem Rana, head of a local religious organisation, approached the Jinsi Police Station with a written complaint against Nigam, the official said."We are studying this complaint and further course of action will be decided accordingly," he said.
Nigam today got his head tonsured by a celebrity hairstylist at a press conference here in response to a fatwa by a Muslim cleric who took strong exception to the Bollywood playback singers tweets.
