Shabana Azmi slams scrapping of Ghulam Ali's Mumbai concert

Pakistani singer's concert was cancelled following Shiv Sena's threat to disrupt it
Mumbai: Veteran actress Shabana Azmi, music composers Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani have criticised the cancellation of Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali's concert here following Shiv Sena's threat to disrupt it.
The 74-year-old singer was scheduled to perform tomorrow but Shiv Sena warned that no artiste from Pakistan will be allowed to perform in the city till terror emanating from
across the border is stopped. The organisers announced the cancellation yesterday after a meeting with Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray at 'Matoshree', the Thackeray residence in suburban Bandra.
Shabana Azmi took to Twitter to express her disappointment-
Echoing Shabana's sentiments, Vishal posted, "Ghulam Ali saab and his music are above and beyond politics. If he can't perform it will be our loss, not his. #Shame."
His composing partner Shekhar wrote, "Ghulam Ali Saab is our guest. Honour his presence. Music knows no boundaries."
