On Thursday, BBC put out a report telling its readers that there was no audible sounds of the azaan anywhere near Sonu Nigam’s residence. The journalist who filed the report claimed that she was outside the singer’s apartment in Mumbai’s Versova area in Andheri at 5 am, and she waited for half an hour but could not hear any call for prayer from any loudspeaker during that time.
However, the important detail that the BBC missed out is that Sonu Nigam has a second flat in Andheri’s Millat Nagar area and that is where the singer tweeted from on Monday when he complained about the sound of the azaan having disturbed him.
To just put the matter on record, I visited Nigam’s flat in Millat Nagar early this morning and got the sound of the azaan on camera.
