Singing sensation Sonu Nigam kicked up quite a storm by defending Radhe Maa's wardrobe, and dancing habits yesterday on social media. Soon after, the former 'Sa Re Ga Ma' host found himself the object of a lot of hate for comparing the alleged godwoman's skimpy attire to the Hindu goddess Kali, but refused to back down from his stance.
Just my 2 pence. Kaali Maa is depicted in lesser clothes than Radhey Maa. Interesting that this country wants to sue a woman for her clothes— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
Men Saadhus can walk naked. Dance embarrassingly, but it takes a rape charge to put them behind bars. So much for Gender equality? :)— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
Wanna sue, sue the followers... Sue YOURSELVES.. For making them God men and women. Setting different rules for men and women, not fair.— Sonu Nigam (@sonunigam) August 16, 2015
In addition to this, Nigam also posted a lengthy Facebook message, asking people "how does the number and length of clothes on a person define his or her Spiritual Quotient?"
Godwoman Radhe Maa created quite a controversy online, when pictures of her wearing a mini-skirt and dancing to Bollywood numbers made their way online. She was also accused of instigating a 32-year-old woman's in laws to demand dowry, and had a case registered under section 498A against her for the same. She was the time, defended by Subhash Ghai, who claimed that he and his wife were like her parents.
