Ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali Khan.

After threats by Shiv Sena led to cancellation of the Oct 9 Ghulam Ali concert in Mumbai, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee offered on Thursday to host the concert of the Pakistani ghazal singer, hours after Delhi government also invited the organisers to stage the event in Delhi.

“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.
