After a brief period of facing public outrage, the accomplished Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has offered a ‘weak’ justification and apology over his brutal action of assaulting one of his employees in an extremely cruel way: however, Netizens are not ready to believe on the ‘rapid’ apology expressed by the singer, protesting with the phrase: “we are not mad.”

In case the readers are not aware, in the late hours of dark, a heart-wrenching video emerged on social media during which the senior musician Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was seen inflicting severe violence on one of his servants to whom he claims he considers a ‘pupil’ over a ‘minor’ reason of misplacing some ‘precious’ water bottle which was granted to the singer by his spiritual teacher.

The aforementioned incident has provoked severe criticism and badly affected the singer’s reputation to a great extent. Over observing the situation, Rahat has lately issued an apparently regretful and apologetic statement with the ‘victim’, (his employee), and father of the man, claiming: “It was the matter between ‘mentor and his pupil. When some student performs well we appreciate and on his bad, we treat him with punishment, it is something like that. However, I have apologized to my child right after the incident and realization of my mistake you can ask him directly.”

On the other hand, the employee who absorbed the violence said: “He is like a mentor to me he beat me because I forgot about the water bottle which was quite important to him as it was filled with ‘blessed water.’ He loves us so much someone has captured the video to damage his reputation. There was no such case he considers us own ‘child.’
