West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee offered to host the concert of Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali, a day after the event was cancelled in Mumbai in the face of Shiv Sena threats.
“Music has no boundaries. Music is the rhythm of the heart. Ghulam Ali concert can be held in Kolkata”, Banerjee, who is now on a visit to Bhutan, tweeted. “We will make all arrangements,” (for the concert) she added.
Ghulam Ali’s concert in Mumbai was cancelled after Sena threatened to disrupt it warning that no artiste from Pakistan will be allowed to perform in the city till terror emanating from across the border is stopped.
Meanwhile, the Arvind Kejriwal government on Thursday invited Ghulam Ali to perform in the national capital, saying “music has no boundaries”.
