Playback Singer Sonu Nigam's comments on early morning Namaz didn't go down well with the Minorities. West Bengal Minority United Council Vice President Syed Sha Atef Al Quaderi announced an award of Rs 10 lakh to those who shaves Sonu Nigam's Head, Places a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and makes him tour all over the country. He even described the Singer as Anti-National and defended his statements saying, 'My reaction would have been same if someone talked ill about the sound of bells from temples'.

Guess, How Sonu Nigam reacted? The Singer himself called a barber to his place to shave his head at 2 PM on Wednesday. He even invited Media Persons for the tonsuring ceremony.

Upon shaving his head, Sonu Nigam asked Quaderi when he would be paying the cash award of Rs 10 lakh to him. He also questioned, 'Wasn't the offer announced a Religious Gundagardi?'.

Sonu Nigam asked how can anyone term him as Anti-Muslim. He claims, 'I always treated Mohammad Rafi like my father. Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan Saheb is My Guru'.
