New Delhi:��Pakistani sufi singers Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad, along with Indian sufi qawwali group Nizami Brothers, will spread tunes of soulful music here on November 14.�The festival Taali Ho, an international qawwali festival, is being organised by Krishna Prerna Charitable Trust and Arun Budhiraja, at India Islamic Centre, Lodhi Road. The event aims to reinforce a notion that art and craft is not restricted to any borders, and is being held after all the hue and cry over Pakistani artists performing in India, read a statement. Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali's concert in Mumbai was called off after resistance from Shiv Sena last month and a debate raged over �extreme intolerance� comments by superstar Shah Rukh Khan. The actor was compared to Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, and another Hindutva proponent, Sadhvi Prachi dubbing the actor a "Pakistani agent". Maestros from across the border Fareed and Abu are known for giving a different meaning to qawwali, while Nizami Brothers - Ghulam Sabir Nizami and Ghulam Waris Nizami - are popular for singing qawwalis in sufi style.
