You must know that we are not running high volume songs every time & playing in hands of evil
Adaan is the most beautiful invitation for coming to prayer & walk on right track of life.

Why would we care about your opinion ??
Recently in Spain almost after 500 years, Azaan was called on loudspeaker in the mid of this crisis… even they are starting to acknowledge the importance…..
I feel so pity for you "Atheist "!!!!!

The purpose of azaan on loudspeaker is to call peoples for offering the namaz in mosques. and azaan is most beautiful sound in the world. It will not stop at any rate. And you and Sonu Nigham nd many who have thinking that during azaan they disturb. Then keep your ears close.

You dont need to prove your secularism by asking for a ban on loud speakers for azaan alone.
There should be a blanket ban on use of loud speakers- be it for any Ganesh chaturti, azaan, Sunday mass or any religious purposes
Not to forget the noise in VIP weddings too!

When a user asked Javed Akhtar for his opinion on loudspeakers being used in temples, he replied, “Whether it’s a temple or a mosque, if you’re using loudspeakers during a festival, it’s fine. But it shouldn’t be used everyday in either temples or mosques. For more than thousand years Azaan was given without the loudspeaker. Azaan is the integral part of your faith, not this gadget.”
Earlier, Javed Akhtar requested his Muslim fellowmen to stay at home and offer their prayers during the month of Ramzan.
Well, sometimes the 75-year-old out of concern says what he feels right, but people take it in a different way.
