"Welcome to the state of cowards, thugs and the greedy!"
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ex-wife Reham Khan has said that her vehicle was shot at by several gunmen.
The journalist explained that the incident happened on the night of January 2, 2022, as she returned from her nephew’s wedding.
On Twitter, Reham said that two men on motorbikes were responsible.
She went on to blame her ex-husband for creating such a society.
Reham wrote: “On the way back from my nephew’s marriage my car just got fired at and two men on a motorbike held vehicle at gunpoint!
“I had just changed vehicles. My PS and driver were in the car. This is Imran Khan’s New Pakistan?

Reham suffered no injuries but she stated that the incident left her “outraged and concerned”.
She later revealed that an FIR still had not been registered.
Reham continued: “It’s 9 am. My PS and team has not had a minute of sleep and the FIR still has not been registered in Shams Colony Police Station Islamabad.
“Investigation is ongoing. Waiting for a copy of the FIR.”
Her ordeal prompted messages of concern from her social media followers.
One person said: “Hope you and your staff are safe. Highly deplorable incident.”
Another wrote: “Stay strong, I hope you and everybody with you is safe. Prayers.”
Reham Khan thanked her followers for their support and said she “would prefer a duel not a cowardly covert attempt”.
“I don’t fear death or injury but I am outraged and concerned about those who work for me.”
Reham Khan was briefly married to Prime Minister Imran Khan in 2015, however, they divorced after just nine months.
She is known for being a critic of her former husband and frequently slams him for his style of governance and public remarks.
In a previous interview, Reham claimed that she had fled Pakistan after receiving threats of being “blown up”.
In June 2021, Reham slammed the PM after he controversially blamed women for the rise in sexual violence in the country.
Speaking to Jonathan Swan, Khan had said:
“If a woman is wearing very few clothes, it will have an impact on the men, unless they are robots. It’s just common sense.”
Reham branded him a “defiant, stubborn rape apologist”.
She said his comments were “unforgivable” and branded him “beyond insensitive” for continuing to blame women for sexual violence.
