News Desk |

Females of leading political families spoke in defense of Reham Khan in the wake of recent multiple incidents of bullying she encountered. Maheen Taseer, the daughter-in-law of deceased former governor of Punjab Salman Taseer, and Bakhtawar Bhutto, the daughter of Benazir Bhutto lashed out at people demonizing Reham Khan on social media. Sherry Rehman also condemned the London park incident.

Maheen Taseer took to Twitter and bashed comedian Zaid Ali over his recent row with Reham Khan. Reham Khan and Zaid Ali had a heated exchange of tweets in which the comedian criticized Reham Khan for calling Imran Khan a drug addict in her controversial book.

Maheen Taseer schooled Zaid Ali for respecting women. She asserted that people cherish Zaid Ali for his comedy and he should be restricted to that. She stated that Zaid Ali should refrain from woman shaming and reminded him that he has a wife too.

In another tweet Maheen Taseer, referring to the recent controversy of a woman trolling Reham Khan, lashed out at the supporters of Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf for directing abusive behavior towards Reham Khan. She stated that people must not violate the boundaries of respect.

Simiarly Bakhtawar Bhutto, the sister of Bilawal Bhutto also expressed her appreciation for Reham Khan over calmly responding to the insolent behavior of woman filming her in the UK. She called out the PTI supporters for harassing Reham Khan and asked Imran Khan to teach his followers moralities.

She wrote: “All the video did was made me a fan of @RehamKhan1 for being so patient & tolerating troll harassment,” Bakhtawar tweeted.

“The PTI supporter should spend less time harassing another woman & stop leader worshipping someone who has been aggressively against women rights and pro Taliban justice,” she added.

Despite all the condemnation and discourse over the issue from various dignitaries there continues to be the exchange of hard comments between PTI supporters and former wife of Imran Khan, Reham Khan.
