ISLAMABAD: 

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan is under immense pressure from his family members to get married in the near future, family sources have revealed.

According to them, Imran’s sisters in particular are very insistent that he get married in a bid to avoid personal vilification.

“They are sick of personal attacks against Imran… they cannot take this anymore and as such want him married soon,” a source said.

While the PTI chief’s response to the development is unknown so far, family sources said his sisters have already selected a lady for him from within the family.

They added that if all goes well, Imran will be married soon.

    He’s already committed to his country. No chance of a woman now.

    We should be ashamed as a nation for questioning the resolve of a man’s unwavering commitment to a cause. Let us ask ourselves a simple question: do we not know of the affair(s) of at least one married person around us? Even known politicians?

    Then IK will lose the support of all single and eligible divorced women who support PTI because they are in love with him. That could be half of 1 million marchers to Islamabad. Not a good wrench to throw into the works right now.

    That’s why I think it’s a bit rich on her part to be asking IK to settle down.

    Of course he did by giving away his family property to the party, by not contesting elections, vying for any position in the set-up, his real brother and nephew martyred. You might like to consider that leading from the front sometimes has less to do with location and more with spirits.

    This news is a bit strange since most of the people in Mianwali are sure that Imran Khan is married to Ayla Malik, the PTI’s candidate from Mianwali who was later disqualified due to her fake degree.
    Ayla Malik is the grand-daughter of the late Nawab of Kalabagh and also related to the former President Farooq Leghari.
    Ayla Malik carries a lot of political influence in PTI Mianwali. Due to her, some of Imran Khan Niazi’s cousins – more specifically Inamullah Niazi got estranged and it was him who exposed the fake degree of Ayla Malik.
    Perhaps Imran Bhai wants yet another wife :)Recommend

    You have certainly given a new definition to ‘leading from the front’. The fact is people in our city are facing all the hardships; killings, extortion, land grabbing, street crimes, robberies etc etc how on earth is he leading them from the front by living in London in assets of billions?
