On the first death anniversary of Indian rapper Sidhu Moose Wala, renowned maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan paid a heartfelt tribute to the slain musician during his live qawwali concert. Moose Wala was no less than a rap icon, who had garnered immense love from his fans in India, Canada and Pakistan.

May 29 marked the solemn occasion, commemorating the beloved rapper and congressman who tragically lost his life in Mansa district when he was shot by a group of assailants. In remembrance of Moose Wala, Khan dedicated his qawwali performance of Akhian Udeek Diyan to the late rapper during his live concert. 



The village of Jawahar Ke, where Moose Wala hailed from, also paid its respects to the departed artist. Locals organised prayers, with his mother Charan Kaur present to honour her son's memory. Fans and fellow congressmen joined in paying homage to the talented singer as well. Congress shared a special message on Twitter, stating, "UWC (United With Congress) pays tribute to our Congressman, Rockstar, Legend Sidhu Moose Wala on his first death anniversary. You are missed."

The shocking murder of Moose Wala in broad daylight sent shockwaves throughout the subcontinent. However, the case remains unsolved, and Moose Wala's father, Balkaur Singh, has accused the Aam Admi Party-led government in Punjab of failing to deliver justice for his son.

As of January 2023, significant progress had been made in the investigation of the case involving the murder of Moose Wala. Among the 31 individuals against whom FIRs were registered, 27 were apprehended and detained. However, Moose Wala's family expressed their concerns, asserting that the "real killer" had not yet been identified and brought to justice.

As the first anniversary of Moose Wala's untimely demise looms over fans like a dreary cloud, his legacy continues to resonate, and his music remains a cherished part of the hearts of fans and followers worldwide.
