Islamabad: Journalist-turned author Reham Khan, estranged wife of Imran Khan, chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and cricketer turned politician is not ‘sadiq and amin’(honest and righteous).
Reham Khan’s marriage with Imran ended in 2015. Even before their marriage ended, Imran Khan married for the third time. Estranged over the fact, Reham moved to Pakistan’s Supreme Court against Imran urging Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to take suo moto notice of the matter, PTI reported.
Reham claimed Imran did not disclose about his marriage to faith healer Bushra Maneka for about two months which constituted a violation of Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution, according to Pakistani media.
Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified from his position in the Panama Papers case by the Supreme Court under the same provision.
Reham also criticized Imran over the recent candidates nomination for the caretaker chief minister for Punjab after Imran’s party withdrew name of their proposed candidate.
“How can a person run a country if he cannot give a name for the caretaker chief minister,” Reham asked.
Reham Khan remained to be the centre of the controversy after one of her book’s manuscript was leaked online, irking several leaders. These leaders took to Twitter to accuse Reham of being a part of ‘agenda’ ahead of General elections.
The 65-year-old cricketer turned politician Imran Khan’s previous two marriages ended in divorce. He secretly married Bushra on January 1.
When asked, the politician denied his marriage rumors. Imran’s first marriage lasted for nine years with Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire. He has two sons from his first marriage.
It was on 19 February 19, when the party’s spokesperson Fawad Chaudhary announced about their party chief’s third marriage.
