Reham Khan’s wikipedia page locked after vandalism


Free online encyclopedia Wikipedia has locked Reham Khan’s page after over eight attempts were made to vandalise and destroy online presence of Reham Khan, ex-wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan.

Speaking to a local media outlet, Saqib Qayyum, member of Wikipedia’s Help Desk and a volunteer editor said episodes of vandalism began on June 3 when an unknown individual changed Reham’s date of birth from 1973 to 1963. The next day, her place of birth was changed from Ajdabiya, Libya to Heera Mandi (Lahore’s red-light area), Lahore.

Her introduction on the Wikipedia page states, “Reham Nayyar Khan| ریحام نئیر خان  born 3 April 1973 is a journalist and film producer of British Pakistani descent.” However, users on the page changed ‘journalist’ to ‘Nalaiq‘ [useless], ‘professional liar’ and ‘Pakistani phuppo’.

Her official website was changed from to in an attempt to defame and disrespect her.
