While Sonu Nigam's Azaan rant hurt a lot of religious fanatics, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi's latest attack on the loud azaan culture, invited sound debates on her tweet. The singer took to Twitter to express her plight of being waken up by azaan at 5 am in the morning and listening to it by force. "Came home at 4.45 am 2 most aggressive/ ear shattering call of azaan. Nothing more lowlife & dumb than such extreme imposed religiosity," she tweeted. Obviously, she was attacked by religious enthusiasts, who targeted her tweet, just like how Sonu was trolled. However, her tweet soon saw some sound minded people making interesting points. Someone tweeted, "I have never heard this loudspeaker azaan in dubai or muscat. In India, it is deliberately done to show middle finger to Hindus." Some also pointed fingers at the Hindu culture as a Twitter handle stated, "Why blame only one religion...are we Hindus lagging behind??"
This isn't the first time that she has spoken about her issues with the azaan. In 2009, she actually wrote on her blog, how she has been annoyed awake from her slumber because of the harsh noise of azaan coming from the loud speakers. On her blog she reasoned, "Noise is noise-whether it comes from prayer or party music bellowing out of loudspeakers. Wether it is the sound of hindu bhajans, christian hymns or muslim azaan, at 5 am the world is entitled to silence. There should be a time limit imposed on it that applies to all communities and sects. Religion is a private matter and should not spill on to the streets-if it does it should do so at civil hours say 8 am to 10 pm or something." Check out how Suchitra received a positive response from people.

Just recently Sonu had tweeted his displeasure over waking up to Azaan and trollers got to him to such an extent that he actually bid adieu to social media! Oh yes, he quit. A mention of the same was done by a troller on Suchitra's tweet but she had a befitting reply to the same. Someone said, "Don't invite troubles ma'am...Sonu Nigam ji had to quit Twitter because of same observation. Ppl u think r with u won't speak a single word" to which she said, "well the azaan seems to have gotten louder since his tweet. Its ridiculous. He tweeted from same location as me."
