Maneka accuses Imran’s lawyers of trying to legalise ‘un-Islamic practices’
ISLAMABAD: (Suno News) Bushra Bibi’s former husband Khawar Maneka has accused former prime minister Imran Khan’s lawyers of trying to legalise ‘un-Islamic’ practices in Iddat case.

“The issue of iddat and Bushra Bibi’s case is being politicized moving away from the commands of Allah and His Messenger (Peace Be Upon Him),” Maneka said during a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday.

He alleged that certain social media platforms targeted him, and his family members.

On the occasion, Maneka also played a video to explain the Islamic teachings regarding Iddat. He said: “This video contains the information that the people of our country should be following, and practising Muslims do adhere to these principles.”

Expressed concerns over “deviation from the Sharia law”, Maneka alleged that concerning 39-day Iddat period, unlawful practices related to remarriage were being pushed to be legalised.

He maintained that The News journalist Omar Cheema broke the news of Khan’s third marriage. He added that no one questioned the former prime minister about his third marriage with Bibi.

He said that the issue had been turned into a “political problem”. He revealed that he divorced to Bibi on November 14, 2017 and informed his children about his decision on December 1.

He said that former PM Imran’s aides lied about Khan’s marriage. Maneka raised concerns over the legal push to allow marriage within a 39-day Iddat, which he believes goes against the teachings of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
