Imran Khan's wife Bushra Bibi has been accused of corruption in the midst of Pakistan's political crisis, as her friend Farah Khan fled the country.
Imran Khan can now divorce Bushra Bibi, his third wife and spiritual advisor, according to Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen.
“Now he can divorce her and marry a fortune-telling female parrot who will say Imran will never die,”the author tweeted as Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan prepares to face a no-confidence vote in parliament on Saturday.
“Imran Khan married Bushra because Bushra with her special spiritual power said Imran would be the Prime Minister. Did she predict he won't be able to complete his term? Certainly not,” Taslima claimed, citing hearsay that Imran Khan married Bushra Bibi because she was his spiritual guide who allegedly led him to the PM's chair.
In 2018, shortly after winning the election, Imran Khan married Bushra Bibi, also known as Pinky Peerni.
Since becoming Pakistan's first lady, opposition parties have accused Bushra Bibi of practicing witchcraft.
Though nothing is known about Bushra Bibi, Pakistani media reported that Imran Khan had been seeing Bushra Bibi for spiritual advice since 2015, and that several of her political forecasts had come true.
Bushra Bibi was previously married to Khawar Farid Maneka, a government officer, before marrying Imran Khan.
In the midst of Pakistan's political instability, which Imran Khan believes is the product of a "foreign" conspiracy, Bushra Bibi resurfaced in political discourse, with the opposition alleging that she was burned alive.
The opposition alleged that she burnt chicken to make 'jinns' happy for Imran Khan's future. The escape of her friend Farah Khan, accused of corruption, from Pakistan has also created a stir.
