Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali honoured with the prestigious ‘Hilal-e-Imtiaz’ award

Renowned Pakistani musician, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, has been bestowed with the prestigious ‘Hilal-e-Imtiaz’ award in recognition of his exceptional contributions to the world of music. The ceremony took place on Pakistan Day, where President Asif Ali Zardari presented Khan with this esteemed honor at Aiwan-e-Sadr.

Khan’s musical prowess and his dedication to promoting Pakistani and South Asian music globally have earned him this remarkable accolade. His mastery in the art of Qawwali and his mesmerizing performances in both traditional and contemporary music genres have not only captivated audiences but also elevated Pakistani arts to international acclaim.

Expressing his gratitude, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan humbly accepted the award, acknowledging the unwavering support of his family, friends, and fans throughout his illustrious career. He sees this honor as a testament to his ongoing commitment to excellence and a motivation to continue showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Pakistan to the world.

Having previously received the Sitara-i-Imtiaz in 2018, Khan considers the Hilal-e-Imtiaz as a significant privilege and a responsibility to uphold the legacy of his uncle and mentor, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. He pledged to continue modern interpretations of Qawwali, ensuring its relevance and resonance with contemporary audiences.

In a recent development, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cleared Rahat Fateh Ali Khan of any involvement in alleged money laundering or tax evasion activities. Following a thorough investigation, the FIA found no evidence linking Khan to any illicit financial practices, thereby putting an end to the speculation surrounding his name.

The inquiry, initiated earlier this year, scrutinized the travel records of Khan and other frequent flyers from Lahore International Airport. Despite being listed among the frequent travelers, Khan emerged untainted from the investigation, reaffirming his integrity and dedication to his craft.

As Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan continues to enchant audiences worldwide with his soulful melodies and profound musical expressions, the ‘Hilal-e-Imtiaz’ serves as a testament to his enduring legacy and his invaluable contributions to the world of music.
