Imran Khan breaks silence

ISLAMABAD (web desk) – Finally breaking his silence over rumours regarding his third marriage with Bushra Maneka, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said the opposition members are trying to portray that he has committed a biggest crime by expressing his wish to get married again.

“For 3 days I have been wondering have I looted a bank; or money laundered billions in nation s wealth; or ordered a Model Town-like killing spree; or revealed the state secrets to India? I have done none of these but discovered I have committed a bigger crime: wanting to get married,” Imran Khan stated in a message posted on Twitter.

He mentioned that the vicious media campaign led by Nawaz Sharif and Mir Shakeel-ul-Rehman does not bother him.

Khan said he is only concerned for his children and the very conservative family of Bushra begum, all of whom have been subjected to this malicious campaign. He said this negative campaign has only strengthened his resolve to fight his opponents all the way.

 

Khan further said he has known the Sharifs for 40 years and he is aware of all their ‘sordid personal lives’ but he would never stoop to the level of exposing these details.

 

At the end, Imran Khan asked his well wishers and supporters to pray that he finds personal happiness which he has been deprived of for few years.

 

Earlier on Sunday, The party of cricket legend turned politician Imran Khan confirmed that he has sent a proposal of marriage to a faith healer but that the woman has yet to decide on the matter.
