Rahat Fateh Ali Khan releases clarification after being filmed hitting “student”

Singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has released a clarification after a video of him hitting a “student” went viral online.

The video shows Khan brutally attacking a man with his shoe, who he claimed was his disciple. Pakistani news channel, Samaa TV identified the man as Khan’s employee.

Khan clarified that it was a personal matter between an “ustad and his shagird (teacher and disciple)”.

In the video, Rahat said, “This is about a personal issue between an ustad and shagird. He is like my son. This is how the relation is between a teacher and his disciple. If a disciple does something good, I shower my love on him. If he does something wrong, he is punished.”
