I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India". He then posted three more tweets expressing his displeasure over the use of loudspeakers at mosques.

"The singer faced severe backlash on social media as his statements were viewed as insensitive towards Muslims. However, Sonu firmly stood his ground. Following the backlash, he posted another tweet on Tuesday stating that he stood by his earlier remarks."
