MULTAN: The civil court of Multan on Tuesday issued a restraining order against launching of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s former wife Reham Khan’s controversial book and directed to submit reply till June 9.

A plea was submitted in the civil court of Multan to halt the launch of Reham Khan’s controversial book.

The statement of the plea claims that some of the book content is allegedly against the fact and reality.

The restraining order of the civil court directed Reham Khan, Pakistan’s former ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani and Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to submit reply till June 9.

It is pertinent to mention here that the pandora box opened when actor Hamza Ali Abbasi took to social media and claimed that he had read the manuscript of book written by Reham Khan.

According to actor and PTI activist Hamza Ali Abbasi, Reham in her book has declared Imran Khan as the “most evil man to walk on the face of the earth” while Reham herself is “the most pious, righteous (Tahajjud guzaar) woman ever and Shehbaz Sharif is an amazing guy”.

Hamza Ali Abbasi further said that there is a big agenda behind the book and added that the timing of the publication of the book is also very important and significant, as the book was announced to be published just before the general elections in Pakistan.

However, Reham Khan has denied the claim and said that her book revolves around her life.

Moreover, Reham also denied on Monday that she received money from former Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif or held any meeting with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz.

LAWYER SAYS BOOK NOT FOR POLITICAL MOTIVES:

Reham Khan’s lawyer Yasser Latif said on Tuesday that the upcoming autobiography is not intended at influencing the forthcoming general elections “as being alleged by PTI”.

“The book, as far as I know, is going to be published either in July or even August,” Yasser Latif told in an interview to a private news outlet. “It is a closely guarded secret.” He added that “I haven’t talked to my client about the dates as such.”

Latif went on to say that the notion that the book is intended at influencing the elections is “entirely manufactured by the PTI  camp.”
