“Even Mohammed Rafi sang many devotional songs. We also see Master Saleem singing such songs, which are highly popular among people,” said Naaz, a resident of Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh.
Singer Farmani Naaz is in controversy for chanting hindu bhajan, now she gives befitting replies saying even Mohammed Rafi sang Hindu devotional songs.
Controversy against Farmani emerged after a Muslim cleric opposes to singer’s latest song Har Har Shambhu. Notably Muslim Cleric is from UP Deoband he objected to the singer’s new song ‘Har Har Shambhu’ and said that no Hindu devotional songs should be sung in Islam.
He further says that it is against Islam. He also calls it a it a forbidden act. Muslim Cleric asked her to apologize to Allah (God) for her act.
Meanwhile later he said this is only his opinion as singing and dancing is prohibited in Islam.
“An artist has no religion. I sing devotional songs as well as qawwali,” she said.
“An artist does not perform by seeing Hindu-Muslim. When we sing, we do not think if it is a Hindu song or not. We sing because it is our profession,” she told Times Now.
She also clarifies that no ‘fatwa’ has been issued against her.
Muslim cleric Mufti Asad Qasmi said “See, I would say that the culture of dancing and singing is not encouraged by religion of Islam. It is absolutely forbidden in Islamic culture. This girl who has sung this, apologize for singing this song to Allah.”
He further said that she is not disowned by the religion. “But she surely has done a forbidden act, which is condemnable and she should not repeat this again,” he added.
When Times Now asked her about this, Farmaani said she has nothing to say to these people. “Eeveryone is using the voice given by God. We do not become Hindu by singing bhajan, we are only artists,” she added.
