He, however, insisted on clarifying that the ‘bottle’ was water given to him by his spiritual master and nothing else.

He refuted the characterization of the episode as an act of abuse, asserting that he immediately sought forgiveness from Hasnain after the altercation.

Netizens seem to be unconvinced by his apology video. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan hit back at people saying that they should watch themselves and look how cruel they are.
