We all know about Sonu Nigam’s azaan rant that is keeping him in the headlines these days. While he is being massively bashed for ‘disrespecting’ the azaan, one of his supporters in Madhya Pradesh was attacked by two people for doing the same. At the times where morning azaan is the trending topic, we stumbled upon a video of PM Narendra Modi where he heard azaan while he was delivering a speech in Kharagpur.
The video is dated back to March 27, 2016 when PM Modi addressed a public gathering at an election campaign for the upcoming Assembly polls then. The video showed that PM Modi heard the prayer from a nearby mosque and what he did next might surprise you.
Canvassing for BJP in West Bengal, PM Modi halted his speech as soon as he heard the sound of the morning-prayer from a near-by mosque. Even though the people cheered him to continue, but he put his mics down, and waited patiently till it was over. And then continued his speech.
Well, this was not the first time that such a gesture was noticed by someone during the azaan. Salman Khan, back in 2014, had stopped a press conference of Bigg Boss after he heard the prayer and continued only after it was finished. Watch –
