Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha LK Advani on Monday condoled the death of Ustad Bismillah Khan, terming him 'a legend of Hindustani classical music'.

In his message to the family members of Khan Saheb, who died at Varanasi on Monday morning, he said the world would always remember the shehnai wizard for his dedication towards preserving the great legacy of Indian classical music.

"The void caused by his death will be difficult to fill and it is important that young musicians reflect the dedication of the great shehnai exponent in their lives by drawing inspiration from the Ustad," Advani said, in his message.
