For the past few days, the biggest news which appears to have hit all Pakistani news channels and websites is that of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, wanting to get married for the third time.
It was confirmed by PTI that Khan had sent a marriage proposal to Bushra Maneka, and was awaiting her response.
This piece of news has been on everyone’s mind it appears, as this is all anyone can talk about. However, it appears that all the media hype has really gotten to Khan as he broke his silence over the matter through a series of tweets.
Expressing annoyance over the ‘vicious, gutter media campaign’ being run against him, Khan accused former Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and a media house for creating unnecessary issue of his private life.
“For 3 days I have been wondering have I looted a bank; or money laundered bns in nation’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.”
“The vicious, gutter media campaign led by NS & MSR mafia does not bother me as respect & humiliation come from Allah Almighty,” Khan tweeted on Wednesday.
Khan further said that he was only concerned about his children and Bushra Maneka’s family, as it is very conservative and so much media attention might bother them.
Khan said despite knowing ‘sordid personal lives’ of Sharif for the last 40 years, he would never stoop to the level of exposing those details.
Khan has assured the public that if Bushra accepts his marriage proposal, he will definitely share the news with everyone.
