None of Imran Khan’s wives (current or ex) are ever spared from criticism. Whether it’s criticism of their religion, their past or their choice of clothing; everyone has an opinion.
Bushra Maneka, Imran Khan’s current wife, is no exception to being at the receiving end of criticism by virtue of association with the man, either
The fact that their relationship is much more private than Imran’s previous ones just adds more to people’s unnecessary curiosity.
The entire mystery regarding their relationship has only fueled the fire. And a lot of people have their own theories about the relationship.
Imran Khan and Bushra Maneka's wedding is just a "Roohani Wedding". Maneka's calculated through chilla etc that Khan can only become PM if he marries Bushra Maneka. Khan would have divorced Bushra Maneka after GE2018 and then she would've remarried her first hubby. #Confirmed

And once, the marriage was made public, of course, people wanted to know more about the politician’s new wife.
Does anyone know what is this cult called, the one Bushra Maneka seems to be a part of?

Bushra Maneka is either another overambitious wife or an access to conservative groups that @ImranKhanPTI wants to please.

And while all of the speculations are somewhat warranted because of the fact that both these people are public figures.
What isn’t very cool is the hate that Bushra Maneka seems to be getting over her choice of dressing.
What someone wears is a personal choice and should not at all be the reason they are criticized
I want to know where are the women right champs who cry hoarse and lurid about respect? An unassailable woman is being constantly targeted and mocked. How does this blatant misogyny elude the feminists? pic.twitter.com/Y414beRn2z

Earlier there were jokes how the situation of her life resembled the popular TV show “Game of Thrones” and everyone chuckled because it was funny

They’re using the recent “Sajda” controversy to be something that she was the source of
Look at this.. Bushra Bibi's ex husband is doing Sajda before entering Shrine and Bushra is in the vehicle.. Ex Husband was also under control of Bushra Bibi. I am scared of this woman. Bushra Bibi seems to be a witch.. Imran Khan is in trap. https://t.co/J1dpuBvTgK

Women being blamed for the actions of the men in their lives is certainly not a new phenomenon, it’s always easy to blame the woman because she’s supposedly an easy target and, of course, the South Asian myth that all “honor” lies within the women of the family almost always draw every action to being originated by women.
Centuries of this behavior have led to women being mercilessly beaten, ostracized, criticized and honor killed over little things they probably had no control over. Political affiliations aside, being ruthlessly negative toward the women is a dangerous slippery slope.
While it is important to have political opinions, one needs to know where to draw the line.
Bushra Maneka’s attire should not come under fire because her husband is a public figure or even her own political aspirations.
We need to be more accepting and realize our view of the world is not the only one out there.
