ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan has supposedly secretly tied the knot with a woman he used to visit for spiritual assistance, A story published in top English daily, The News.
The PTI chairman welcomed 2018 by marrying the woman on the night of January 1 in Lahore and came straight from there the next day to appear before the anti-terrorism court in Islamabad that granted him bail.
Mufti Saeed, a member of PTI core committee, read the nikkah of the couple. Saeed was also the nikkah khawan when Imran openly entered into marriage with Reham Khan on January 8, 2015.
Imran Khan has secretly tied the knot again:
While, Awn Chaudhry and Naeem-ul-Haq have denied the news of this marriage, the Mufti was hesitant to either confirm or refute this story.
The political secretary of the PTI chief, Awn, is thought to have attended the ceremony, something he out rightly denied and also dismissed the point that the nikkah took place. Awn was also a witness in Khan’s previous marriage to Reham Khan.
Similarly, presenter for the party head, Naeem-ul-Haq also denied this, adding that if Khan was to marry, he would do so after the general elections.
Shireen Mazaari was also very vocal against the news of Khan’s marriage and posted a couple of tweets about this topic
But, Mufti Saeed was uncertain to issue any denial. When he was first approached on Thursday night Saeed remarked, “I will not say anything on this issue. Please accept my excuse,” he said repeat the same line he did when approached after Imran’s marriage with Reham.
It is learnt that Khan’s new bride was previously married to a government servant with whom she separated a few months back. While, her former husband confirmed the separation, he denied the rumors of this marriage.
Imran evidently developed a relationship with the women when he went to her for spiritual assistance a couple of years ago. This would be the third marriage of Imran Khan; first married with Jemima Khan on May 16, 1995, a marriage that lasted nine years. His second marriage was with a TV anchor Reham Khan, which lasted only 10 months.
