Hamidur Rahman Azad lambasts Indian singer Sonu Nigam for his anti-Azan comments

Assistant Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and former lawmaker Hamidur Rahman Azad has issued the following statement on 18th April, 2017 protesting the illogical comment of Indian singer Sonu Nigam that he has made against Azan.

“Indian singer Sonu Nigam has violated the United Nation charter by interfering the UN sponsored religious rights of the Muslim people as he has made a derogatory comment against Azan. 

He also made a huge blow against the religious belief and spirit of the Muslim communities around the world through his hate speech against Azan. With his comment, he also violated the Indian constitution as well. Indian constitution also ensured the religious rights of the people of all faiths and religion. The countrymen are witnessing with great regret that the cultural personnel of the incumbent ruling party are endorsing such atheist singers and artists of India in different functions and nurturing the spirit of communalism in the name of non-communal practices. These kinds of ill activities must be stopped.

I am urging the Indian government to undertake due legal measures against singer Sonu Nigam.”
