With elections 2018 looming near, Imran Khan is much in the limelight these days.
With his ex-wife Reham Khan publishing a book against him to his horrible BBC HardTalk interview, the PTI politician is in the news left, right and center.
However, Kaptaan seems oblivious to all the negative publicity and appears headstrong amidst all the chaos.
Meanwhile, social media is flooded with pictures of IK and his third wife, Bushra Manika on a holy pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina.
This is for the first time the newly-weds have been spotted traveling together and the internet was bound to react!
While some devotees could not stop praising Khan for landing in Medinah barefoot, the haters attacked his wife for covering herself in a shroud.
People are criticizing her for shielding her face throughout her voyage.
is it ok to cover face in masjid al haram?? as per my info it's not allowed 😕 why did bushra manika cover her face there then?

The author of the book ‘Afghanistan: From Cold War to Gold War’ roasted Manika in an outrageous tweet!

Somebody had issues with the tasbeeh wrapped in her hand!
پنکی پیرنی کے ھاتھ پر لپٹی ھندووں جیسی کٹھ مالا ۔

However, a sane group of people on Twitter rose to condemn all the hate against IK’s wife.
really sad to see otherwise well-meaning liberals and progressives making fun of Bibi Bushra's (Imran Khan's wife) burqa/attire. It is totally her choice what to wear and when/how to wear it. Keep your chutzpah to yourself!

Twitterverse was quick to point out the hypocrisy of all these trolls!
Shame on all those who’re making fun of Bushra Maneka’s Hijaab.
First you crticise women for being a lollipop for not covering and now call her a coffin for covering herself up.

Surely, there was nothing wrong with the way Bushra Bibi covered herself!
These people who keep telling that women should have their own choices & no one should tell women what to wear are so angry about Bushra Manika's dressing.
Oh the irony!

All women have the right to dress as they like!
As per Pakistani pseudo feminists" mera jism meri marzi " is valid only when a girl is wearing shorts or tank tops etc. but not when she has covered herself according to her own will#bushramaneka

Well haters gonna hate, potatoes gonna potate! Even though Manika’s dressing was totally fit for a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, her act invited the wrath of her ‘social media keeras’ for one reason or the other.
Live and let live people!
