The Maulvi from West Bengal who issued a fatwa against Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam did not live up to his promise. The Maulvi, who had earlier claimed to give Rs 10 lakh to anyone who shaved Nigam’s head, took a sharp U-turn yesterday. He framed new conditions after he realised that 10 Lakh is a 7-digit figure. This was expected from the Maulvi.
Arvind Kejriwal has invited the Maulvi to Delhi & promised to pay the sum (apart from giving the Maulvi free Wi-Fi). The Maulvi declined the offer after he reportedly lost his Casio calculator. In another shocking report, Mamata Banerjee has offered to send the Maulvi to Gujarat. She said that the decision was made to help the Maulvi seek guidance from Chartered accountants in Gujarat.
Sonu Nigam took up the challenge and decided to get his head shaved.
Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi. https://t.co/5jyCmkt3pm

After the shave was done the Maulvi checked his bank balance. After learning from his Madrassa teacher that 10, 00,000 has 6 zeroes in it, he fainted. After water was smeared on his face by Manish Sisodia, the Maulvi was seen crying. Sisodia consoled him saying- “It’s all a part of the game. Promise, but never fulfil… Don’t worry, Maulvi saab we won 67/70 in Delhi even after failing the people’s trust.”
The Maulvi later regained his confidence and was back on TV debates by evening. Sonu Nigam didn’t get the money, but we at least figured out that the Maulvi was capable of winning gold at the Olympics (if there was one for bluffing).
@sonunigam Hahaha time to pay up Maulavi saheb

The Maulvi was only ranting. But ‘The Nation Wants To Know’ if the Maulvi learnt to speak English just before the debate or the Madrassa education provides Wikipedia links.
