ISLAMABAD–A day after an intimate marriage ceremony which garnered hysterical media coverage, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and his better half, journalist Reham Khan on Friday drove to Mufti Saeed’s madrassa to distribute food to children.
Due to the recent Peshawar tragedy, Imran had decided against having a grand Valima ceremony and chose to distribute food to less privileged children.
Shireen Mazari earlier told media, “Imran is in no mood to celebrate after the Peshawar tragedy,” Mazari added. “This is not a time to celebrate.”
While speaking to the media from the madrassa, Imran Khan mentioned that the wedding was planned for later, but due to ill-informed news going viral, he decided to go ahead with the wedding.
“Getting married was not my plan right now, I thought I would do it after the 20th,” said Khan. “But because of the kind of stories that were spreading and ill-informed news about Reham Khan, I decided to get married sooner. So, I spoke to my children and got married,” he added.
The PTI chairman also said that Pakistan should start a new tradition. Instead of spending huge amounts of money on weddings, people should make efforts to donate to the underprivileged.
