The doodle showed the musician singing, his left hand raised to make the letter "l" in the word Google.
Born on October 13, 1948, Khan was primarily a singer of qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis.
The singer died of a cardiac arrest at the age of 49 on August 16, 1997.
Last week, another Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali cancelled his concert in Maharashtra after Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt it.
