The Kerala Shiv Sena unit has reportedly demanded the cancellation of a performance by Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali, which is scheduled to be held on 15 January in Thiruvananthapuram.
According to media reports, the Sena has cited the Pathankot terror attack as the reason to cancel the programme, according to a Times of India report.

It was time for mourning, not celebration. As part of paying homage to the Malayali officer Lt Col Niranjan Kumar, who lost his life in the operation against terrorist attack, the organisers should cancel the programme.
Ghulam Ali had earlier cancelled his music programmes in Mumbai and Delhi following threats from the Shiv Sena.
Bhuvanachandran also criticised Narendra Modi for his silence on terror attacks at Pathankot and said, “This attitude of the Prime Minister is doubtful”, reported The Times of India.
