Imran Khan breaks silence over third wedding rumour

Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday broke his silence on the report of his alleged third marriage in a series of tweets. He tweeted on Tuesday “for 3 days I have been wondering have I looted a bank; or money laundered bns in national’s wealth; or ordered a model-town-like killing spree; or revealed state secrets to India; I have done none of these but discovered I have committed a bigger crime: wanting to get married.”

It must be noted that rumours of Khan’s alleged third marriage to his “faith healer” had circulated on media after a report surfaced in The News on Saturday. The report had claimed that Imran Khan performed third marriage on the occasion of New Year.

Initially PTI leaders denied the reports while some said it was Imran Khan’s personal matter. Later on January 7, Imran Khan’s spokesman in a statement clarified that he had proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka, who has “asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children”.

Imran Khan also slammed Jang Group owner and former Prime Minister Nawaz Shareef. He accused PML-N head Nawaz Sharif of being behind the “vicious” campaign. He alleged that the “vicious, gutter media campaign” was being led by NS [Nawaz Sharif] and MSR [Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman], adding that it did not bother him.

In his next tweet he wrote, he is only concerned about “his children and the very conservative family of Bushra begum, all of whom have been subjected to this malicious campaign by NS & MSR”.

Imran Khan said “I have known the Sharifs for 40 years and I know all their sordid personal lives, but I would never stoop to the level of exposing these sordid details.”

He asked his well-wishers and supporters to pray that he find personal happiness which, except for a few years, he had been deprived of.
