Pulwama: Sonu Nigam hits out at Indian secularists

Sonu Nigam has lashed out at the “secular” Indians after the deadly attack on a security convoy in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. At least 40 soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) lost their lives in the worst terror attack on our security forces in decades.

In a one-and-a-half-minute video shared on his Facebook page, Sonu asked the citizens of the country why they were mourning the CRPF soldiers who were martyred in the attack. “Arre, 44 ho ya 440, aap log kyun dukh mana rahe ho itna? Isme dukh wali kya baat hai itni? Aap toh woh kariye jo iss desh mein sahi hai, jo secular log karte hai,” he said.
“Inn baaton mein dukh manana chhod dijiye RSS pe, BJP pe, Hindutvavaadi, so-called rashtravaadi sansthaon pe. Aap toh woh kijiye jo yahaan par secular log karte hai. ‘Bharat tere tukde honge’, ‘Afzal hum sharminda hai’. Shabaash! Agar India mein rehna hai, toh iss tarah ki secular soch aapki honi chahiye,” the singer further attacked the “secular” citizens.
According to Sonu, saying Vande Mataram or Jai Hind was not acceptable in a “secular” country. “Vande Mataram bilkul mat bolna. Yahaan pe woh sab bolna wrong hai. Aur yeh dukh mat manaiye aap. CRPF ke log the, isme bohot badi baat toh nahi hai, hai na? Chaliye, milte hai. Namaste bhi yahaan nahi bolna. Lal salaam!” he said.
