Pakistani ghazal legend Ghulam Ali arrived in the Kolkata on Monday for his scheduled performance on Tuesday.

Ghulam Ali and his son will perform at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

The ghazal maestro was received at the NSC Bose International Airport by West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation Chairman Sultan Ahmed, who is the main organiser of the event.

After the cancellation of his concert in Mumbai in October due to threats by the Shiv Sena, Ghulam Ali had expressed his disappointment, asserting “never to return to India”.
