On Friday, a local newspaper professed that Imran Khan, ex-cricketer and now politician, had already married for the third time. This news spread throughout the country and became the hottest topic for the weekend. People took over social media, commenting their views on PTI Chairman’s possible marriage.
PTI members first denied the news and refused to speak about it, referring to it as Khan’s private matter. But later an official statement was issued by PTI. According to a statement issued by the party on Sunday, Khan had proposed marriage to Bushra Maneka, who has asked for time to make a final decision after consulting her family, including her children.Khan’s party says that if Maneka and her family would accept the proposal then Imran will announce it himself. Till then it has been requested that the media should respect his privacy.
His new soul-mate is none other than the lady he used to visit for spiritual guidance. Bushra Maneka, who is in her 40s and is believed to be a respected Pir in Pakpattan. Maneka is separated from her former husband, son of former Federal Minister Ghulam Farid Maneka.
She has five children from Mr Maneka, two sons and three daughters. Bushra’s two sons are currently studying abroad. While her eldest daughter, Mehru, is the daughter-in-law of Punjab MPA Mian Atta Muhammad Maneka. Her former husband has previously served as the assistant collector, deputy collector and additional collector in different parts of Pakistan and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi last month approved his promotion in BPS-21.
On the other hand, The PTI chief was married twice but none of his marriages worked. His first marriage was to Jemima Goldsmith, a British Pakistani journalist, in 1995. Mr. Khan and Jemima ended their marriage in 2004. Khan has two sons who currently live with their mother in London. Imran married again in 2015. This time with a famous BBC weather girl, Reham Khan. This was second marriage for both Reham and Imran. Sadly, this marriage lasted only for 10 months and the couple parted their ways on 30 October 2015.
Now, Mr. Khan is getting married for the third time. We wish him good luck for his upcoming married life and hope this marriage will work out, unlike the previous ones.
