Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the renowned Pakistani vocalist, has been bestowed with the esteemed Hilal-i-Imtiaz and Sitara-i-Imtiaz accolades on Pakistan Day in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the nation's music sector and for elevating Pakistan's reputation globally with his captivating singings.

Rahat shared this special moment of honor with his fans on his Instagram account, posting a video of himself receiving the awards.

In a heartfelt caption accompanying the video, he expressed his gratitude to all those who love and support him.

 “It is with profound gratitude that I accept the prestigious HILAL-I-IMTIAZ & SITARA-I-IMTIAZ awards bestowed upon me by the esteemed President. I extend my heartfelt appreciation to my cherished family, friends, and devoted fans, whose unwavering support has been my guiding light on this remarkable journey. Together, we stand in humble reverence, inspired to continue our pursuit of excellence.”

However, on this news, netizens are actively voicing their discontent, with many expressing skepticism and unhappiness over the decision.

The discussion online has stirred up a flurry of criticism, with individuals questioning the award's validity and the selection criteria due to recent controversy surrounding Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

This controversy arose when a video of Khan at home surfaced, showing him physically reprimanding a servant over a bottle, due to which many countries have banned him.

Despite admitting the video's authenticity, Khan and his servant portrayed the incident as a mentor-mentee interaction.

The incident, known as the "Dum Wala Pani" incident, gained significant attention, yet Khan was still honored with a national award despite the controversy. It's evident that public sentiment leans towards dissatisfaction.
