Social media is the fastest and the easiest to create controversies.

Where serious debate must have been sparked, but a thousand jokes were triggered instead, faux fatwas were issued against Sood instead of Nigam, and more, unless Sonu finally tweeted, "I am still wondering WHO said WHAT n to WHOM n WHO'S asking me to find out WHAT happened WHERE."
They are seldom active online, but only when it comes to safer stuff. Bollywood celebs prefer to portray collective sharing of philosophy, harmless promotional info and sweet selfies. The industry's silence after Sonu Nigam’s tweet about "forced religiousness" and being woken up by the azaan is typical.

Nigam continued to say that by the way, (Prophet) Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam... Why do one has to have this cacophony after Edison?
He tagged Maharastra CM Devendra Fadnavis in his tweet.
"Dear Fadnavis, please take note and help us force police to act against illegal blaring of azaan and other such activities," the singer plead twitte.
As Nigam's views went viral, reactions poured with variations from all over India.
Pakistan-born Canadian writer Tarek Fatah sided the singer.
He said that not everyone felt the same way.
Standup comedian Atul Khatri asked the Bollywood singer to find a new place if he was being so much troubled.
Maharashtra Congress leader Naseem Khan stated that Nigam's comments were intended towards communal polarisation and was a very cheap publicity effort.
Nigam said he that believe temples or gurdwaras should must be using electricity either. “Why then..? Honest? True?” he tweted.
Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri supported Nigam by saying that he’s willing to sponsor a campaign against illegal blaring of Azaan and other prayers on loudspeakers.
Aligarh movie writer Apurva Asrani posted on Twitter don’t wanna hear Azaan at dawn, nor does he wants to hear a Chikni Chameli tuned Ganesh Aarti at dusk. Ban all loud speakers of religion...he quoted.
