According to local reports, a representative from the British Asian Trust explained the decision to end the association with the singer after carefully reviewing the video evidence.

The incident, which took place in Houston, Texas, last year, captured Khan physically assaulting a band member, using slaps, kicks, and even his shoes. In response to the controversy, the acclaimed musician explained, claiming that the reality of the situation differed from what was depicted in the video.

He clarified that the incident stemmed from an internal dispute with a student named Naveed Husnain, and the “bottle” mentioned in the video contained water given by a spiritual leader, which he had misplaced.

Husnain, described as Khan’s student, came to the singer’s defense, stating that the video represented an internal matter and that Rahat had apologized to him. He highlighted his teacher’s affection and accused unidentified individuals of attempting to tarnish Khan’s reputation through blackmail.
