Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi. https://t.co/5jyCmkt3pm— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) April 19, 2017
However, the 43-old singer today once again clarified his stand and said, "I believe loudspeakers are not a necessity in temples, masjids and gurudwaras."
On the question of being labelled as anti-Muslim, Nigam replied, "I have considered Mohammed Rafi as my guru. My driver is Muslim. I am not anti-Muslim, I consider myself secular."
Twitter has been abuzz after the singer's bold move.
But, in the meanwhile, Syed Sha Atef Ali Quaderi, the vice-president of West Bengal United Minority Council, the cleric who had issued the fatwa has backed out from paying Rs 10 lakh to Nigam.
Quaderi is now saying that Nigam has just fulfilled one out of the three conditions that he had laid out. He was quoted by ANI as saying, "Sonu Nigam has not done all the things I asked for, two out of three things remain unfulfilled."

He further said, "Will give reward for Rs 10 lakh, only when he does rest two – garland old torn shoes and tour around the country."
