MANCHESTER (APS) Nov 4,2015– Reham Khan, former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, was seen Wednesday attending a media conference event in Manchester, England. Reham broke her silence and spoke publicly for the first time after her much publicized divorce with the PTI Chairman during the conference. Addressing the conference Reham subtly criticized her former husband saying:
“You can hit a six but what matter is if you opt for a long term partnership and complete your century.”
According to the details, Reham was bombarded with a hoard of questions pertaining to her divorce by journalists but appeared hesitant in answering these questions. During her address, Reham commented on the treatment of women on social media and said that defaming a woman is a displeasing act and should be avoided.
Addressing the event, Reham stated that women in Pakistan face insecurities in society. She stated that upon her arrival in the country, she was warned that Pakistan was not particularly welcoming to the concept of a woman working in media and was told that she would not be able to make her mark in media and will not be successful., however, she was not only able to work in the media department but also found no hindrance or setbacks during her work.
Reham also stated that Pakistan had bestowed her with a lot of things and was dear to her, no matter what it was like. She said Pakistanis in England are desirous of returning to their country. Reham further stated that she immediately felt like going back to her country as soon as she had reached England.
In an earlier press conference in Pakistan, the PTI Chairman had slammed a journalist, severely criticizing him for asking an intruding question about his marriage with Reham Khan. Khan had castigated the journalist saying that he should be ashamed of poking in to such private affairs and should act in accordance with the ethics of a civilized society. Khan ended the conference soon after that and walked out.
