ISLAMABAD: PTI chairman Imran Khan broke his silence on the marriage controversy surrounding him in a series of tweets on Tuesday.
“For three days I have been wondering have I looted a bank; or money laundered billions in nation’s wealth; or ordered a model-town-like killing spree; or revealed state secrets to India? I have done none of these but discovered I have committed a bigger crime: wanting to get married,” he said.
The PTI chairman said: “The vicious, gutter media campaign led by Nawaz Sharif and Mir Shakeel-ur-Rahman mafia does not bother me as respect and humiliation come from Allah Almighty. Their vicious campaign has only strengthened my resolve to fight them all the way. However, my concern is for my children and the very conservative family of Bushra begum. All of whom have been subjected to this malicious campaign by Nawaz Sharif and Mir Shakeel-ur-Rahman .”
He also vowed to never go down to the level of exposing the sordid details of the Sharifs’ personal lives, which he claimed to know the details of.
He pleaded his supporters and well-wishers to pray that he [Imran] finds personal happiness which, “except for a few years”, he has been deprived of.
