Ghulam Ali concert has turned into “political battle” as Shiv Sena cancelled his show in Mumbai, but knight in shining armour, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal invited Pakistani singer to perform in the national capital.
“Sad that #GhulamAli is not being allowed in Mumbai, I invite him to come to Delhi and do the concert. Music has no boundaries. #BanTheBan,” wrote Kapils Mishra, Delhi Culture Minister on his twitter account.
Ali’s concert in Mumbai was cancelled after Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt it, warning that no artiste from that country will be allowed to perform in the city till terror emanating from across the border is stopped.
The said show was organized in memory of late ghazal singer Jagjit Singh.
“Atmosphere is not conducive for me to perform. Such controversies spoil people’s ‘sur’ (note). I am not angry, I am very hurt,” says Ghulam.
