Mumbai: Singer Hans Raj Hans has converted to Islam, if reports in Pakistani media are to be believed.
Reports claimed that the popular singer, known for his Punjabi folk and Sufi songs, converted to Islam during his recent visit to Lahore. The Pakistani media said that Hans Raj Hans is proud to have embraced Islam and expressed his wish to visit Madina.
Hans Raj Hans, a Sikh by birth, will now be known as Mohammed Yousuf, reports added. However, he will keep his original name for his professional endeavours.
Nonetheless, reports in the Indian media have quoted Hans Raj Hans’s son Navraj refuting the reports of his father converting to Islam. Navraj said that his father is unwell and is at their home in Jalandhar.
Navraj had married singer Daler Mehendi’s daughter Ajit in November 2013 according to the Sikh traditions at a Gurudwara in Gurgaon.
