A rare photo of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Maneka is making rounds on the social media, showing the couple apparently posing for the click after performing Umrah.
On Monday, a video showing a barefooted Imran Khan disembarking from a chartered plane at a landing strip in Madina surfaced on the social media.
Imran’s close aide Syed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari, aka Zulfi Bukhari, whose name is on the no-fly list, was accompanying the couple.
Zulfi was granted a one-time permission for a period of six days to perform Umrah, triggering a firestorm on the social media.
Subsequently, he was then allowed to fly to Saudi Arabia in the chartered plane along with Imran and his wife. Zulfi is a UK-based businessman, who is affiliated with the PTI.
On Thursday, Imran Khan was ‘welcomed’ by a sit-in outside his Bani Gala residence when he returned to Pakistan after performing Umrah.
A number of disgruntled party workers from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Buner district staged the sit-in over what they claim ‘favouritism’ in the distribution of party tickets for the upcoming general elections.
