The world might be on the verge of having a Third world war, but there still are leaders, politicians, celebrities and other people who respect the religion and faith of those around them. When a few organizations around the world resort to mass killing and terrorism in the name of their religion and beliefs, the entire Islamic and Muslim community comes under the radar because of these few shallow and cringe worthy douche-bags. I'm glad that these famous personalities around the world are setting a benchmark for their followers by defying all the cliched and pre-conceived notions about the Muslim community and are paying respect to their call of prayer.
During his West-Bengal Election rally, when the PM of India was addressing the common man, he did this utterly inspiring and respectable thing that left every Indian in awe (Not that we already aren't)!
Prime Minister, Narendra Modi halted his ongoing speech for several minutes in order to pay respect to the Muslim call of prayer - Azaan. He continued his speech only after the Azaan came to an end.
When Bieber was performing at his concert in Turkey, he paid his respect towards the Islamic community of Turkey by pausing his concert for a couple of minutes when he heard Azaan being recited.
The Islamic community in Turkey practices Azaan five times a day and believe so firmly in their religion that they even mention Azaan in their national anthem. JB did not stop his concert once, but TWICE so that the people attending his concert could pray and practice Azaan in peace.
During one of the promotional tours of Bigg Boss 8, when Salman graced the stage with the maker of the show, he stopped his interaction with the press and audience to pay his respect to the call of Azaan.
When his friend did not understand what Salman was trying to imply, Salman made it clear to him, and they both stopped all interactions until the Azaan got over.
The Bharatiya Janata Party chief, Amit Shah was addressing a rally in Kolkata in November 2016, when he stopped his speech mid-way after hearing the sound of Azaan coming from a nearby mosque. Permission for which was given by the Banerjee administration only Saturday.
"Let us stop. We don't want to give Mamata any excuse," Shah said, halting his speech for nearly five minutes after the azaan was sounded.
Shah took a jibe at the West Bengal government by making this rhetoric remark and raised his hand in order to express his seriousness on being quiet.
The 69-year-old Congress leader Sonia Gandhi was addressing the audience in Allahabad on the birth centenary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi when she heard Azaan. She immediately stopped speaking.
Not only did she stop her speech but she also covered her head with the saree she was wearing. What a remarkable woman!
