When it comes to the Prime Minister of Pakistan’s personal life, specifically related to his third wife, Bushra Maneka, also known as the First Lady of Pakistan, Bushra Maneka, little is known. However, many individuals who have met the First Lady comment on her grace, elegance, intensity and intelligence with high admiration. Although the biography of Bushra Maneka is still an ongoing tale, here’s what we know so far.

Love at First Sight: A Spiritual Connection

Anyone familiar with cricket knows the competitive nature and unyielding perseverance that Imran Khan holds in his heart. However, after two marriages ending in divorce, the fierce Khan looked to spiritual practices in order to gain insight into his future. His then spiritual consultant, Bushra Maneka, guided Khan through a series of hardships and provided wisdom during his time of need. Taken back by her soothing soul and gentle advice, Khan married Maneka in a private ceremony held in February of 2018.

As a stroke of luck or spiritual serendipity, Khan became Pakistan’s Prime Minister a short six months after the wedding ceremony concluded. Although many citizens were shocked by the series of events leading up until his election, Khan and Maneka knew good things were headed their way.

About Bushra Maneka

Although much is unknown about her past, the age of Bushra Maneka is said to be in her 50s. Her youthful appearance and lovely demeanor are unwavering and were used to enchant Khan after their initial spiritual consultation. Her previous husband, Khawar Farid Maneka, gave her five children during their marriage, whom she maintains a relationship with to the present day. Bushra derives much of her spiritual and philosophical knowledge from an ancient group called the Wattoo clan. The clan believes their lineage stems back from Wattoo, a distant descended from Rajah Jaisal. Jaisal holds many titles, but his most noteworthy characteristic is that he founded Jaisalmer, the “Golden City” that lies in the state of Rajasthan.

According to Imran, his initial introduction to Maneka was through her lovely sister, Maryam Riaz Wattoo. After her impressive prediction related to the election of Jehangir Tareen, Imran was astounded by the depths of her spiritual knowledge and clairvoyance. From here, Maneka regularly consulted with Imran and gave advice to the success magnate realted to spirutual teachings, book recommendations and philosophical topics to stir conversation. While Bushra enjoys a life of solidarity and introverted hobbies, her presence and influence is felt across Pakistan.
