Breaking his silence on the marriage controversy surrounding him, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday went on a Twitter spree, questioning whether wanting to get married is a crime.
Khan said for the last three days he had been lamenting as to how he is being treated as a criminal.
1. For 3 days I have been wondering have I looted a bank; or money laundered bns in nation's wealth; or ordered a model-town-like killing spree; or revealed state secrets to India? I have done none of these but discovered I have committed a bigger crime: wanting to get married.
In a thread of tweets, Khan even lambasted ousted Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Mir Shakil Ur Rehman, the founder of news channel Geo TV, accusing them of running a smear campaign against him.
He, however, said that their campaign has only strengthened his resolve to fight them.
2. The vicious, gutter media campaign led by NS & MSR mafia does not bother me as respect & humiliation come from Allah Almighty.
