India is a tolerant nation: Adnan Sami
NEW DELHI: Famous singer Adnan Sami while speaking at “Agenda Aaj Tak” conclave on Saturday said famous Pakistani ‘ghazal’ singer Ghulam Ali should be allowed to perform in India. He also said India was a “tolerant” nation and he has been living here if ample proof of it.

I love India…It is my ‘karmbhoomi’ (place of work).” The famous singer also said cricket between India and Pakistan should be allowed to happen and that relations between the two nations should improve.
