HARIPUR: Reham Khan, the former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, on Sunday denied having any contact with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) provincial chief Amir Muqam and Member National Assembly (MNA) Ayesha Gulalai.
Talking to reporters here, she said that she never met Amir Muqam or had any contact with Ayesha Gulalai as it was against her nature to defame or stab someone in the back. “I am not part of any conspiracy or plan as is being claimed by some of the PTI people,” she asserted.
She complained that she was being defamed by a lobby. “I am being dragged unnecessarily into this matter,” she complained. Reham Khan said she remained silent for two years after her divorce, but the way she was being defamed had forced her to break her silence.
Holding the Holy Quran in her hand, Reham Khan said that she believed in the Holy book and was answerable to Allah Almighty. “I am a journalist and a Pathan, who always speak the truth,” she said.
She added that being a journalist she was able to express her feelings instead of paying others as she didn’t have ill-gotten money. To a question, she said neither the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif nor his family had asked her to write a book on her life.
Commenting on the role of media, Reham Khan said the media must not be used for mudslinging and this practice should be discouraged. “Don’t defame this sacred profession,” she said, adding that people didn’t have access to clean drinking water and were faced with a host of issues, but the media was busy with mudslinging.
