Shiv Sena demands cancellation of singer Ghulam Ali’s concert in Mumbai


The Shiv Sena has demanded the cancellation of popular Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali’s concert in Mumbai scheduled for Friday this week.

The party said that “we can’t have cultural ties with Pakistan when they kill our soldiers.”

The 74-year-old, who has sung for a number of Indian films, held a concert at the famous Sankat Mochan temple earlier this year in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency.

The party on Tuesday demanded the centre to “show guts and attack Pakistan” in retaliation for the spate of terror attacks carried out from across the border in the recent times which killed many Indians.

In a sharp edit in the party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena – an important constituent of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at the Centre – said that recently, four Indian soldiers were martyred for killing one terrorist in Kupwara area of Jammu and Kashmir.

There have been similar encounters with terrorists in Udhampur and Handwara (Jammu and Kasmir) and Gurdaspur (Punjab) with heavy losses on the Indian side.

“The tragedy is that the terrorists are proving to be major challenge to the Indian security forces… Some Pakistani ministers and Hafiz Saeed keep threatening India at will and get away… But we just laugh it off,” the Sena pointed out.

In the process, the country is losing on its brave soldiers while the terrorists are being honoured as ‘martyrs’ and freedom fighters in Pakistan, with memorials erected after them.

Despite this, when Indian soldiers are blatantly killed on the borders, we are compelled to fight with Pakistan-supported terrorists, but we also continue to hold negotiations with Pakistan, though it is simply not interested in discussing terror activities.
