“Amplification of the sound during ‘Azaan’ comes from insecurity” – Saif Ali Khan on “Azaan on loudspeaker” issue

New Delhi: Bollywood Actor, Saif Ali Khan commented on “Azaan on loudspeaker” issue. He said that “Amplification of the sound during ‘Azaan’ comes from insecurity”.

According to the news published in Indian Express, Saif Ali Khan said, “Don’t know who you are offending. At one level I agree, the lesser sound the better, there should be certain decibel levels allowed across religious practices. I also understand the amplification of the sound during azaan comes from insecurity. Not just here but also in Israel apparently where three different religions co-exist. It’s been written about so I believe it’s the same. As a minority, you would like to make your presence felt and hopefully accepted. If someone says that it should be extinguished, it will make some people little uncomfortable. As a precursor to some sort of holocaust, it’s the first thing you think of. There’s a bit of fear there. It’s fine to express your views on the decibel levels. I think that tweet was a bit aggressive though, initially. And I do think religion should be a private affair and we should be a secular country”.

It is to be mentioned that Sonu Nigam earlier tweeted, “God bless everyone. 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 also tweeted on temple and gurudwara. He said, “I don’t believe in any temple or gurudwara using electricity To wake up people who don’t follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True?”
