Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, who recently hit headlines over her azaan tweet, has now lodged a police complaint against the abusive tweets she was bombarded with on social media. The ace singer had tweeted, "Came home at 4.45 am 2 most aggressive/ear shattering call of azaan."

The singer had further criticised the use of loudspeakers for azaan and said that she does not need a loudspeaker to be reminded of God. She further called it a case of “imposed religiosity” and described the use of loudspeakers as “lowlife” and “dumb”. 

Post this, her Twitter timeline flooded with people slamming her left, right and centre. Some even went to the extent of sexually abusing her and even threatened to rape her. Following this, the singer approached the suburban Oshiwara police and filed a complaint. 

According to a leading news agency, a senior police official said, “Based on her complaint, police registered a case under IPC sections 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 67 (a) (punishment for publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act), against four persons."

Earlier this year it was singer Sonu Nigam who raked a controversy for his comments against azaan. The singer even shaved his head after a maulavi had announced a reward for whoever who shaves his head.

Suchitra, I as a Muslim extend my apologies to you for the disturbance created by the loud azaan. As an information let me tell you that azaan is a necessary part of Muslim prayer and can not be abolished. But it is also necessary for the mosque people to keep the volume to tolerable levels. Islamic Sharia does not give Mosque management right to blast the ears of people of other faith, sick, elderly and other people who are exempt from going to mosque for prayer. Just understand that there are under educated mollahs as are under educated pujaris. Next time anyone faces such dilemma, please go and talk to the disturbance creators to put some sense into them.

how i wish more people were sane and sensible like this person.....

Low life

have lived in india, it is a serious nuisance. none of the religious place should be allowed loudspeaker where the noise goes outside their premises. this includes mosque, temple

There are some things which are meant to be discussed in private and this is one of those things. Azaan is not the only religious call that is bothersome in India, how many people from here have actually lived in India? The poojas go on for hours and hours in the morning VERY LOUDLY. Some things are meant to be discussed privately and if you are really bothered by it, take it to the people that can actually make a difference, Twitter is definitely not the place to be venting about it. What kind of response are you expecting? Crazy religious extremists are going to reply back.

She is the biggest attention seeker in the whole world. Now that she saw that no one gave her full coverage on the azaan tweet she is using this to stay in tge light. Such people deserve awards for their degradation and degeneration
