EntertainmentGhulam Ali to perform in Kolkata on January 12

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistani ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali and his son will perform at an event on January 12 in Kolkata, India.

The legendary singer will be performing at an event organised by the West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (WBMDFC), The Indian Express reported.


Last year, Ghulam Ali’s performances were forcefully cancelled in Mumbai and Pune due to political uproar caused by the Shiv Sena.

Ghulam Ali was due to perform in Mumbai in October 2015 when Shiv Sena leaders objected to the idea of a Pakistani artist singing in the city.

However, the noted ghazal singer was more upset about the matter than angry. In an interview, Ghulam Ali had said, “I’m not angry, but veryhurt.”

Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had condemned the act and immediately extended an open invitation to the singer to perform in Kolkata.

“Mamata Banerjee was eager to host the legendary singer and accordingly we wrote to Ghulam Ali urging him to perform in Kolkata. He has confirmed his participation at the event,” said Trinamool Congress MP and WBMDFC chairman Sultan Ahmed.

“Several eminent personalities including the chief minister will be present at the event. Elaborate security arrangements will be put in place,” he said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also invited Ghulam Ali to perform in the city.
