After the concerts of Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali were cancelled in Maharashtra, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today tweeted that the singer has accepted an invite to perform in the city.

Kejriwal tweeted, “Ghulam Ali Sahib. Hum apke bahut bade fan hain. Abhi apse baat karke bahut acha laga. Thanks for agreeing to do a program in Delhi in Dec.”

Two of Ghulam Ali’s scheduled concerts in Mumbai and Pune were cancelled after Shiv Sena protests.

The Shiv Sena said that while tensions remained at the Indo-Pak border, such a concert couldn’t be allowed. The concert was eventually cancelled under pressure from Sena.

Condemning the incident, senior AAP leader Ashutosh said that the cancellation of the event was not only an insult to the singer but also to Jagjit Singh, as the Pakistani singer was scheduled to pay tribute to the late singer on his fourth death anniversary.

On Thursday, Delhi Culture Minister had extended an invitation to the legendary singer to come perform in the national capital.

    I am getting worried about Kejriwal as he exposes more and more his real self. Firts for shwo purposes he used to go about in Maruti van and lived in a small house, now he drives i Mercedez and lives in a huge bungalow. Now he invites stanis unmindful of the fact that stanis are sending terrorists and killing our soldiers, bombing our Diwali bbzars and trains full of pengers, they have bombed our cities many times, what is this MF Kejriwal doing tying to host iftar parties, wearing a skull cap, etc etc. He should be spit upon, even if he represents quality governance. This guy is a double faced opportunist. When asked for explanation of their actions, these SOB shamelessly give the examples of BJP & COngress.

        Let us not mix politics with Gulam Ali's music. BJP's friends in Mumbai thought they could do this stupid thing of cancelling the concert.AAP has done something wise by inviting the singer to Delhi. Let us thank the AAP and look forward to listening to the great Gulam Ali.

            It (cultural exchange) is one of the most important elements. It should be encouraged.

              Why many people criticize Gulam Ali like Abhijit Bhattacharya ? Many renowned singer and writer used to come to India while they belong to stan because they are connected with the diversity of India and have feeling of love and respect for all.
