Ahmedabad: Shiv Sena workers on Monday allegedly tore banners of Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's concert which is scheduled to be held on April 30.

A Shiv Sena worker told ANI that it was very condemnable that Pakistani artists are coming to India when the country is suffering from various problems like drought, etc.

"There is a problem of drought here. There are so many problems in the country. It is very condemnable that in such a situation Pakistani artists are coming," he said.

"The Shiv Sena is opposed to Pakistani artists coming to India. The people, who are business-concerned, are calling these artists for their motives. We will attack all artists if they come. We will tear all posters of him," he added.

The Shiv Sena workers had on Friday staged a protest against Pakistani ghazal singer Ustad Ghulam Ali in Varanasi.

Holding placards in their hands, the protestors took to the streets and raised slogans against the Pakistani singer.

Ghulam Ali is expected perform at the Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple in Varanasi during the inaugural day of an annual music concert beginning on April 26.

The performance by Ali, who had participated in the concert last year as well, will be preceded by classical singer Pandit Vishwanath.
