Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Pakistan’s top singer known for his Sufi devotional music, sparked new controversy as he assaulted his house help.
A video has surfaced online in which Teri Ore crooner can be seen roughing up his worker with kicks and his sandals. Khan repeatedly asked for a bottle and resorted to violence in front of other workers who could be seen stopping him.
As fans are sharing two cents about the assault incident, Rahat’s employee shared a video, clearing the air on the incident.
The man identified himself as Naveed Hasnain and student of Rahat Fateh who said the bottle being discussed in the viral clip was of ‘holy water’.

Naveed said his family members are followers of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and ties between the two sides spanned over four decades. He further called out the person who filmed the incident and shared it online.
Calling Sufi singer his Murshid, the man said Rahat holds the right to express anger on his family members and called it a defaming plot against the singer to malign his repute.
