The ruling ally also took a swipe at the BJP for being a "mute spectator" to the event, and demanded that those who allowed the concert to take place should be booked for anti-national activities.
"The 'Islamic Yadav' government says that Ghulam Ali was invited to perform to promote Hindu-Muslim unity. But, to promote unity, why does one need Pakistani artistes only? There are fine Muslim artistes in the country who are famous," an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said.
"Keeping the upcoming Assembly polls in mind, the Yadav government has started an anti-national business (of inviting Pakistani artistes) to play appeasement politics," it alleged.
Lashing out further at the UP government, it said, "Uttar Pradesh is a mine of fine artistes, but (Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh) Yadav is only interested in coal from Pakistan," and added that tomorrow Yadav may invite Hafiz Saeed to appease the minority community.
