ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan married Bushra Bibi for the third time in 2018 months before his party won the general elections and formed the government at the Center for the first time.
An intimate ceremony was held in Lahore and PTI Central Executive Committee member Mufti Muhammad Saeed performed the nikkah.
In the latest turn of events, Mufti Saeed told a private news channel that the nikah of PTI leader and Bushra Bibi was done twice. He revealed that Bushra Bibi was observing iddat – the period a woman must observe after the death of her husband or after divorce, during which she cannot marry another man – when she was initially offered the nikkah, adding that it was not knowing her situation at that time.
Saeed said he declared the nikkah void after learning about her iddat, adding that he then repeated their nikkah.
Bushra Bibi had taken khula from her ex-husband Khawar Manika before marrying Imran Khan.
