Imran Khan: No, some are Indians.

THE BOOK that Pakistan was waiting for is finally out.

Reham Khan, the former wife of Pakistani cricketer turned hardline politician Imran Khan, claims that he had told her that he had five illegitimate children, some of them Indian. However, the book caused a furore prior to release due to its rumoured portrayal of her ex-husband Imran Khan as well as other notable personalities like former cricketer Wasim Akram and business Zulfiqar Bukhari.

The run-up to the general election has been marred by accusations that the military is meddling in politics and muzzling the media to help usher Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) into power.

How this book will affect Imran's prospects is not clear.

The explosives were fitted to a motorbike which exploded close to the vehicle of Durrani, who is the candidate of Muttahida Majlis e Amal (MMA), a political alliance consisting of conservative, Islamist, religious, and far-right parties of Pakistan.

From Imran's eating habits to his purported sexuality, the self-published book stops at nothing.

Reham Khan, a television anchor, had married Imran Khan in January 2015. It was Imran's dogged pursuit of the Panama Papers leak that led to Nawaz's disqualification and conviction.

Khan wooed the electables bloc at the last election, but by his own admission they flirted with him before opting for Sharif's PML-N once it swept to power in 2013. The television anchor, who married Imran Khan in January 2015, says Khan's was "a weird life". "He grinned mischievously. There are 5 in total, that I know of".

"Only Jemima does. I told her". But according to Reham, she made enquiries and found it was the other way round.

Earlier, Imran Khan filed a petition to stop Reham's autobiography from being published in the country, following which a stay order was issued on the book launch. One interaction that Imran described to me was quite insightful.

"I have received complaints from the Hindu community in Sindh that their women are forcefully married to Muslims", Mr Khan said while speaking to representatives of minority groups at a convention on Wednesday. She wrote that she had caught her former husband red-handed snorting coke (cocaine) in their bathroom. The book by the journalist, recounting her experiences as "a mother, wife, journalist and warrior", is defamatory, according to the aggrieved.
