Mohammad Rafi has been the most versatile singer India could have. He had unlimited range and a voice to suit any occassion be it romantic, bhajans, ghazals, patriotic songs or folk songs. He sang more than 20000 songs in many languages and was undoubtedly an uncontested king of melody . His patriotic songs could bring life into a dead person , his melodious songs could bring tears into the eyes and his Bhajans could take you to a divine destination - he was a complete package . How can nation be so ungrateful to Mohammad Rafi and forget his phenomenal talent ? How can government after government ignore the remarkable , extraordinary and prodigious contribution made by late Sh Mohammad Rafi in the field of music ? He had only one match in the melody who could come close to him and that is none other than most revered Lata Mangeshkar, who has been very rightly honoured with both Dada Sahib Phalke Award and Bharat Ratna . All music lovers expressed their gratitude to the Government for this gesture . However and simultaneously the music lovers and millions of Mohammad Rafi fans have right to know the reasons of denying this respect and honour to Mohd Rafi. The general public has right to know the benchmark that Lata Mangeshkar met and Rafi did not . All experts of music vouch the fact that Rafi was a trained classical singer and deserved these awards during his life time. By this petition, the music lovers across the world want the Union Government of India to confer Bharat Ratna and Dada Saheb Phalke awards to Late Shri Mohammad Rafi, posthumously and rectify the mistakes of your predecessors.
