Imran Khan Shattered My Blissful Marriage with Bushra Bibi, Khawar Maneka

Khawar Maneka, the former husband of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, has made shocking revelations regarding his divorce and the third marriage of the former premier. He said that Imran Khan ruined his happily married life with Bushra Bibi under the pretext of “peer muridi” (a reference to a relationship between a spiritual guide and a follower).

In an interview with a private news channel on Monday, Maneka said that he and Bushra Bibi had a very happy married life for 28 years and they had five children together. He said that he loved Bushra Bibi very much and she was a very pious and noble woman. He said that he never suspected her of having any affair with anyone.

However, he said that things changed when Imran Khan entered their lives. He said that Imran Khan used to visit his house without his consent and he was not happy about his then-wife’s meetings with the PTI chief. He said that he once kicked Imran Khan out of his house with the help of his domestic help when he came to meet Bushra Bibi without his permission.

He said that Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi first met during the PTI’s protest sit-in in Islamabad in 2014. He said that Bushra Bibi’s sister Maryam Watto arranged the meeting between the two. He said that after the first meeting, Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi started meeting frequently in Islamabad. He said that his mother used to warn him that Imran Khan was not a good person and he should not let him come to his house.

He said that Bushra Bibi used to talk to Imran Khan secretly on a phone number provided by her friend Farah Gogi at the request of the PTI chief. He said that he had a residence in Islamabad’s Bani Gala area and Bushra Bibi used to meet Imran Khan at his house in the same vicinity without his knowledge.

He said that six months before the wedding, Bushra Bibi separated from him and went to her house in Punjab’s Pakpattan city. He said that he tried to convince her to come back but she refused. He said that one day, he received a text message from Farah Gogi, asking him to divorce ‘Pinky’ (alias of Bushra Bibi).

He said that he went to Bushra Bibi and asked her if she wanted a divorce. He said that she bowed her head and did not answer. He said that he sent the divorce papers to her through Farah Gogi on November 14, 2017.

He said that later, Farah Gogi and Zulfi Bukhari, a close aide of the PTI chief, asked him to change the date of divorce on the papers and keep quiet as “Imran Khan wants to become the prime minister”. He said that he agreed to do so for the sake of his children and the country.

He said that Bushra Bibi married Imran Khan one and a half month after he divorced her in January 2018. He said that he and his children were not aware of this marriage and he only found out through the media. He said that he denied it at first because he was shocked and hurt.

He said that he had no contact with Bushra Bibi or Imran Khan after their marriage. He said that he wished them well and prayed for their happiness. He said that he had no grudge or hatred against them. He said that he only wanted to tell the truth to the people and clear his name. He said that he hoped that Imran Khan would fulfill his promises to the nation and serve the country well.
