Former singer Rabi Pirzada has addressed the recent controversy surrounding notable singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and called the incident an inappropriate act.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan made rounds on social media as in a viral video, he was seen beating his student after one of his important bottles got missing from his collection. The singer; however, later apologised and clarified about the bottle. After the viral video, a lot of celebrities expressed their sadness and shock on Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s behaviour including Pirzada.
Talking about it, Rabi Pirzada said, “I was watching Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s video for quite some time, I am a former singer, initially I didn’t want to talk about it but my conscience didn’t allow me to stay quiet.”
She added, “Let me tell you, these big singers hire such students for free, they barely pay them and promise them to teach music in return. If you pay them in crores for an event, they hardly pay them (students) a few bucks.” Pirzada further added, “You should take notice of this thing. You have just seen one video, there are a lot of low-profile musicians who are being treated the same way.”
She said after seeing Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s beating video, she was sure that his house help was working for free. She further said, “Also, you jumped from liquor bottle to the holy water bottle, you could have made some other excuse, you said it is propaganda but you were the one who committed a mistake after which it all started.” She added, “Rahat sir, we all make mistakes but you made an apology because of the public. You should apologize to Allah.”
