Imran Khan Ties the Knot with Spiritual Adviser in Third Marriage
Cricketer turned politician Imran Khan has announced his third marriage with Bushra Bibi, a ‘Pir’ or faith healer,in Lahore on Sunday, with his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party releasing pictures of the Nikkah Ceremony.
Khan 65, had been visiting Bushra, also known as Pinki Pir, to seek spiritual guidance after meeting her a couple of years ago, media reports have said.
The photos of ceremony showed Khan, clad simply in the dark blazer Shalwar Kameez, sitting on a sofa next to Bushra, who was covered from head to toe by a veil, with only her eyes visible. Several others, including PTI leaders Awn Chaudhry and Zulfi Bukhari, were parents.
The spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry saif Imran and Bushra were married in a simple ceremony held at the home of the bride’s brother. Bushra’s mother and and other family members are friends joined the ceremony. Imran’s sisters did not attend, media reports said.
Mufti Muhammad Saeed performed the nikkah and Awn Chaudhry and Zulfi Bukhari were the witness. The ceremony was low profile in keeping with Khan’s wishes, PTI leader Inamul Haq said.
A statement issued by the PTI on Sunday night said:
“Marriage is the combination of two hearts and two souls, which join each other on this special day of the wedding. Wishing the couple a very happy and blessed married life”.
Haq expressed hope that Khan’s marriage “would prove blessed not only for him and his wife but for the entire nation”, Dawn news reported.
PTI leader such as Shireen Mazari, Jahangir Tareen and former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi congratulated Khan and his new wife on Twitter.
Who is in her 40s and belongs to the Wattoo clan, of which the Manekas are a sub clan. She was earlier married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official but the couple divorced some months ago.
Khan first tied the knot with British socialite Jemima Khan in May 1995. The union ended in divorce in June 2004 after the couple had two sons. His married to January 2015 to TV anchor Reham Khan ended in divorce in 10 months.
The news daily had reported last month that Khan had married for the third time in a secret ceremony on January 1. The PTI denied the report and Khan said he had only purposed marriage to Bushra.
Khan also said, Bushra had sought some time to consult her family, especially her children. He had also stressed the need for restraint, asking the media to “give the two families, especially the children, their privacy”.
Who is Bushra Maneka aka Pinki Pir?
Bushra Maneka is a faith healer from Pakpattan district of Pakistan’s Punjab province. She was earlier married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a senior customs official in Islamabad and has five children from the marriage.
Bushra Maneka, the third wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) CHIEF Imran Khan, is a resident of Pakpattan district, located in Pakistan Punjab province.
Khan has started visiting her over a year ago to seek spiritual advice, news agency press Trust of India reported “He got closer to her when some political predictions she made about his party came true. Later both developed some intimacy and finally Bushra took divorce from the husband and contracted marriage with Imran early last month”, a person close to Khan told the agency.
In an interview last month, the cricketer turned politician admitted that he had purposed marriage to Bushra. “I would like to reiterate that every time I met her, with family and alone, she has been in Purdha (veil). My interest in her lied in the fact that I have not seen or met anyone with her level of spiritually. I only sent the proposal for marriage after she divorced her husband”, said Imran.
On the other hand, some media reports claimed that the nikkah was performed in Lahore in the first week of January and now just to make the delayed announcement, Khan organized a show ceremony.
Local media reports said that over the past few years, Khan had quietly been visiting a remote town in Sahiwal of Punjab province where he stayed at the residence of his hosts, who belongs to the influential Maneka clan. The reports suggested that Khan had met there with Bushra for spiritual advice.
