Coming out in support of Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam's Twitter rant against 'azaan', the Shiv Sena on Tuesday evaded the topic of 'azaan' in the rant, but asserted that 'noise pollution was slow poisoning which should be stopped.'
"Whoever has tweeted is not important but talking on noise pollution and its effects on people is an important matter to be looked into. With the pollution increasing every day, noise pollution is like slow poisoning which should be looked into and stopped," Shiv Sena MP Manisha Kayande told ANI.
Kayande further said that there should be no noise in the city from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and the court should give strict orders on this.
A day before, Sonu Nigam landed himself in controversy after he took to Twitter to term the morning 'azaan' as "forced religiousness."
Following this, the singer was trolled on the social media with few Bollywood celebs coming in support of him and few opposing his views.
