A leaked script of a book by Reham Khan, wife of cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has stirred a massive political controversy in Pakistan. According to media reports, the manuscript of Reham Khan’s forthcoming book was liked online, triggering severe criticism from PTI leaders, many accusing her of attempting to malign the PTI founder ahead of forthcoming general elections.
According to the Times of India, Salman Ahmad, a famous musician, and a PTI member alleged that Reham was paid Rs 89.3 lakh (Indian Rs) from PML-N to write the book. “A close source has informed me that Reham was given £0.1m (Indian Rs 89.3 lakh approx.) from PML-N to write the book… I have all the evidence. I have the email that she had sent me,” he was quoted as saying by Times of India.
“Had a very unfortunate experience of reading a manuscript of Reham Khan’s book. Here is the summary: IK is the most evil man to walk the face of this planet. Reham is the most pious righteous (Tahajjud guzaar) woman ever and Shehbaz Sharif is an amazing guy,” tweeted Hamza Ali Abbasi, actor, and PTI supporter.
“Tried to make it big by working for BBC couldn’t get beyond being a weather girl. Tried to become the first lady of Pakistan through deception, failed miserably. Now selling her nine months of married life to Imran Khan will fail again,” posted one @Uzmamalik5.
“Hamza Abbasi claims he has read manuscript when it’s not been published? Only possible through fraud or theft,” Reham Khan tweeted.
