If you are even a little active on social media since few days, you should know why Sonu Nigam is trending. For those who don’t know, Sonu Nigam recently tweeted to criticise the morning azaan from the mosque, and described it as ‘forced religiousness’. A maulvi, then called the singer ‘anti-national’, offering Rs 10 lakh to anyone who shaves his head. [Muslim leader offered Rs 10 lakh for SHAVING Sonu Nigam’s head. And here’s how he reacted]
Sonu Nigam, instead of shying away, turned bald after the threats from the maulvi, giving a message that he did not say anything to target anyone. But if you think all this had settled down after this, you’re wrong. Shivam Rai, a guy from Gopalpura in MP, uploaded a Facebook status in support of Sonu Nigam’s rant.
And what happened next will shock you. The man was threatened by two Muslim guys – Mohammad Nagori and Faizan Khan – on Facebook. And a scared Shivam deleted the FB post. And after getting Shivam’s number, both of them started calling him and asked him to meet them once. Shivam, along with a friend – Ayush Shreewas, reached to meet them, they attacked them with knives. Yes, you read it right. While Shivam was not hurt, Ayush received serious injuries and was rushed to the district hospital.
Here’s what Shivam said about the incident –
While the accused are still to be arrested, a case of attempted murder has been registered under IPC Sector 307.
