New Delhi, J.N.N. Bushra Bibi and Pakistani Politics: Pakistan’s politics has heated up again over the Bushra Bibi issue. The ruling party has come down hard on Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan over the release of Bushra Bibi’s audio video. Today we tell you what the whole thing is. Why did Bushra Bibi dominate Pakistani politics? Who is Imran Khan’s third wife Bushra Bibi? What is the secret of his magic? Why the controversy about them? Today in this episode we will tell how Imran Khan gave his heart to Bushra Bibi, a mother of five children. Why did Bushra Bibi’s involvement in politics increase and what was the background?
Who is Imran’s third wife Bushra Bibi?
1- When Imran Khan’s throne was threatened in Pakistan, his third wife Bushra Bibi Khan grabbed the headlines. Bushra is also accused of burning chickens in her house to save Imran’s chair. The then opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif had said that Bushra was practicing witchcraft. Tons of meat were also allegedly burnt at Imran’s Banikala residence to ensure his continued rule. Notably, since Imran’s marriage, Bushra has been in the news for her mysterious personality. Pushra is accused of witchcraft.
2- Bushra Bibi was born on 16 August 1974 in Baghpatan, Pakistan. He hails from a politically influential Vatu family in Punjab, Pakistan. Bushra’s birth place is 250 km from Bagpatan city in Lahore. The city is known as the dargah of the 12th century Sufi saint Baba Farid. Both Bushra and Imran are followers of Baba Farid and their first meeting was at Baba Farid’s dargah.
3- Before marrying Imran, Bushra Kawar was married to Maneka. Kawar Maneka belongs to the richest landowning family of Pakistan. Khawar Menaka was a senior customs official who was the son of Ghulam Mohammad Menaka, a minister in Benazir Bhutto’s government. Bushra initially held modern views, but later turned to spirituality. Bushra has five children from her first husband. Bushra has three daughters and two sons. His eldest daughter Mehru Menaka is the niece of politician Mian Atta Mohammad Menaka. The other two daughters are married.
4- In 2015, Imran and Bushra Bibi had their first meeting at the dargah of Sufi saint Baba Farid. Imran used to visit Baba Fareed’s dargah in Baghpattan frequently. While returning from the dargah, he often stayed for some time with the Maneka family i.e. Bushra, who were considered influential in the area. Bushra is a follower of Sufism and is also known as a spiritual guru or Pinki Birni (Holy Lady) by many. Bushra’s association with Sufism attracted Imran Khan.
5- Imran’s trust in Bushra grew out of a political incident in 2015. In 2015, Bushra’s prediction about the Lothran by-election proved correct and Imran’s party candidate Jahangir Dharin won the election. After this Imran started meeting Bushra frequently for advice and guidance. Gradually, Imran also started seeking political advice from Bushra. This cycle continued even after marriage. When Imran Khan was in power, opposition leaders accused Bushra of meddling in high-level government appointments.
6- Imran Khan has admitted that he did not see Bushra’s face before marriage. I proposed without seeing her because Imran had said that she would not meet me without covering her face. Imran had said that he only saw her old picture at Bushra’s house before marriage. There are also interesting stories about the Imran-Bushra marriage. Bushra is said to have dreamed of becoming the prime minister of Pakistan if Imran married into their family. After this Bushra tried to marry Imran to her sister and daughter, but Imran did not agree, then Bushra divorced her first husband and married Imran.
Caught in controversy, Bushra practices witchcraft
Bushra has been facing charges of witchcraft and sorcery. Some say that Bushra has two jinn with the help of which she fulfills her wishes and feeds the jinn cooked meat in return. In 2019, several media reports claimed that Bushra’s face was not visible in the mirror. However, this statement was later proved to be false. Due to Bushra’s influence over Imran Khan and his party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, members of this party are said to be more loyal to Bushra than to the party itself.
This audio of Bushra created an earthquake
In the audio clip, Bushra Bibi questions Imran Khan’s spokesperson Dr Arslan Khalid for spreading the treason story. The two-minute audio clip begins with Khan’s wife getting angry. He vents his anger on Khalid for not being active on social media. Bushra Bibi is said to have asked Arslan to instruct him to raise the issue of the government not buying oil from Russia and linking it to Imran Khan’s treachery. In the audio, Bushra tells Arslan that you cannot let this issue hold you back. He asked that a trend be created so that people know that the country and Imran are being betrayed. I am telling this only to you… don’t discuss it with anyone, says Bushra.
