MUMBAI: Surprisingly, Indian playback singer Sonu Nigam uploaded a video clip of the Azaan on his Twitter account, a few days after his tweet criticising the Muslim call to prayer caused a backlash.

Sonu Nigam is an individual who certainly loves controversy and publicity, it seems. The renowned singer recently evoked anger and wrath on social media when he spoke out against the Azaan.

In one of his tweets, Sonu had claimed that the Azaan had woken him up and termed it as 'forced religiousness'. However, just this morning, the singer uploaded a video clip of the Azaan from his Twitter account with the caption, "Good morning India."

After his tweet had incurred wrath on social media from Indian Muslims who had criticised him for speaking out against Azaan, Sonu had stated that his stance was against the use of loudspeakers and not Azaan.

Actors Pooja Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan had also spoken out in favour of the Azaan with reference to Sonu Nigam's tweet.

He shaved his head after a Kolkta-based cleric offered Rs 10 lac to anyone who would tonsure him and garland the singer with shoes.

Could it be that the actor is trying to send out the message that he meant no harm with his Azaan tweet and is ready to make amends with the Muslim population who were hurt by his tweet?
