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 www.rehamkhanofficial.com to www.rehamkhansexofficial.com in an attempt to defame and disrespect her.
