Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy Tweets Equating Azaan Over Loudspeakers To Noise Caused By Firecrackers

Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy stoked a controversy by drawing a parallel between Azaan (call to prayers in a mosque) with the noise of firecrackers.

Through his tweets, he stated that the silence of the ‘secular’ crowd over noise pollution by Azaan perplexes him. He also added, “Loudspeakers are not prescribed in Quran or any Haadis.”

He also emphasized that the Muezzin is supposed to shout Aazan from the minarets, and the use of loudspeakers is contrary to Islam. Like Roy, singer Sonu Nigam, too, had stoked a controversy by calling the early morning call for prayer sent out from mosques as “forced religiousness”.
