God - I hope you hear me loud and clear !

I was suddenly reminded of an earlier post of mine when I read about the recent controversy Sonu Nigam got caught in. Loudspeakers at religious places have always been a pain, and suddenly now, media seems to have caught wind of the problem. I hope people like Babu Khan, who are fighting lone battles on the issue should be get more support from the public. Maybe that will set the right trend.

As The Supreme Court rightly pronounced earlier, no religion prescribes that prayers should be performed by disturbing the peace of others nor does it preach that they should be through voice amplifiers or beating drums.

Despite all the noise (literally) around this issue, The noise persists...
I wonder if we can ever learn.

  1. This is a chicken and egg problem: those who care, care. And those who do not care.... We can try all we want, these people will never acknowledge the reality. Being loud is somehow a measure of their devotion to their religion or cause or opposition to some other religion etc.

    1. Don't think it is a chicken and egg problem... it is more about our mindsets I guess...
