Indian Idol fame and YouTube-based singer Farmani Naaz become a victim of trollers. Recently, the singer sang a Shiv Bhajan for her 3.84 million followers and posted it on social media. Despite all the praise the singer also received, she was criticized by a Muslim preacher with ties to Deoband. Let us tell you the Shiv Bhajan that the performer sang was “Har Har Shambhu,” a hymn celebrating the Hindu deity Lord Shiva.
Farmani Naaz, an extremely well-known contestant from the 12th season of Indian Idol, is from Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. She also has her own YouTube channel, where she occasionally posts her own covers of songs for her subscribers. In honor of the holy month of Shravan, the singer recently created a rendition of the Shiv Bhajan “Har Har Shambhu” and shared it with her admirers on social media.
Farmani Naaz’s performance of “Har Har Shambhu” was praised by many for its lovely singing, but it also drew criticism from the Ulema of Deoband, who labeled the singer’s actions as “against Islam.” Cleric Mufti Asad Qasmi stated during an interview regarding Farmani’s most recent video that “singing or dancing is haram in Islam.”
He further said, “Islam me naach gana bilkul jayaz nahin hai aur shariat iski ijazat nahi deti hai. Yeh bilkul haraam hai. Is aurat ko Allah se tauba karni chayie.
However, Farmani Naaz responded to the criticism, she said, “Eeveryone is using the voice given by God. We do not become Hindu by singing bhajan, we are only artists,”.
