Rumors about marriage
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said he has only had spiritual relations with Bushra Maneka, to whom he proposed marriage after her divorce.

Mr. Khan added: “This woman has observed purdah for most of her life. It hurt her family’s sentiments. Every time I have interacted with her, she has been in purdah… This story has caused her so much embarrassment.’’
Khawar Discussion On Media
My name is Khawar Fareed Maneka. I never came in front of media like this but now after watching all these fake news on media about my ex-wife has totally distressed me and my family and especially media is miss leading. Recently I heard that all our family issues were due to Imran Khan. I strongly condemn this news and I want to make clear 1 thing to everyone that My ex-wife is the most pious wife in this world and it’s totally unfair to say anything wrong about such woman. And it’s even sadder to listen such things about Imran Khan, May Allah give him health and happiness and I strongly condemn this and for next time if anyone will ever say anything wrong about my ex-wife and Imran Khan than I will go to court and in the end I will only say that it’s just a rumor without any authentication.
Mosa Maneka Statement
Son of Bushra Maneka, Musa Maneka has also condemned this news and said: Truth is No marriage has occurred and news has spread which is totally fake. I don’t know which immoral person has spread this news but I have a doubt on Shakeel ur Rehman who is the owner of Geo Tv and if he hasn’t done this than his any immoral habitant has done this. I have talked with mother about this marriage news and she has made it clear that it is just a rumor.I don’t want to talk on anything because it is completely a personal matter but yes I want to make it clear that it is a fake news and the people whom I wanted to give answer have better got it and it’s true that my mother is pastor of Imran Khan.
