Bushra Bibi, the wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan, took the couple’s conviction in the Nikah case—in which they were each fined Rs500,000 and sentenced to seven years in prison—before the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

In the Nikah case, the Islamabad High Court ordered session court judge Afzal Majoka to rule on both appeals by the given deadline.

The case involving PTI founder Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi Nikah was transferred to another court by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on June 3.

Ahmed Afzal Majoka, an additional district and sessions judge, now has jurisdiction over the matter.

In response to Khawar Manika’s objection, Session Judge Shahrukh Arjumand wrote to the Chief Justice of the Islamabad High Court, seeking that the matter be transferred.

Now that the transfer plea has been approved, the appeals against the sentencing in the Nikah case will be heard by Additional District and Sessions Judge Muhammad Afzal Majoka.

Maneka “don’t want the case verdict from you,” according to Khawar Maneka’s counsel, who asked Session Judge Shahrukh Arjumand to transfer the case to another judge during the most recent hearing on May 29.

Apology to the High Court

Regarding the continuing Nikah case involving Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi, Session Judge Shahrukh Arjumand subsequently sent a letter to the High Court.

The judge claimed in his letter that Khawar Manika had shown no faith in him at today’s session.

He asserted that the complainant’s attorney has persistently sought to postpone the proceedings through the use of excuses. It is not the judge’s opinion that the presiding officer should be specifically challenged.

He asked the High Court to transfer the appeals to another court with jurisdiction over the matter and to establish a deadline for when they should be resolved.

Marriage between Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi
In Lahore, Pakistan, the ex-prime minister wed Bushra Bibi in February 2018.

No one other than the bride’s immediate family and friends were present during the ceremony. But the sisters of the PTI founder weren’t there.

Former Pakitan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) politician Awn Chaudhary and former South African Police Minister Zulfi Bukhari were witnesses to the nikah performed by Mufti Saeed.

Khawar Maneka, Bibi’s ex-husband, went to court last year to assert that their marriage was invalid and against to Sharia law.

It was once thought that Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi tied the knot during the “iddat period”—the three months immediately following a divorce. On top of that, Maneka has fornicated on them.

Sentence
In the ‘un-Islamic’ iddat case, Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi were both sentenced to seven years in prison.

In the nikah case involving Imran Khan and former First Lady Bushra Bibi, Judge Qudratullah pronounced the reserved ruling.

The court handed down 7 years in prison and a fine of Rs 500,000 to Imran and Bushra Bibi, the founders of the PTI.

Moody’s says the IMF programme will increase Pakistan’s foreign financing.

Moody’s, a reputable international rating agency, has stated that Pakistan’s chances of acquiring funding will increase as a result of the recent agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which offers dependable sources for that purpose from both friendly countries and international financial institutions.

According to a recent Moody’s analysis on Pakistan’s economy, social unrest and tensions could result from Pakistan’s ongoing inflation. The country’s economic reforms may be hampered by increased taxes and potential changes to the energy tariff, it continued.

Moody’s, on the other hand, agrees that the coalition government headed by Shehbaz Sharif of the PML-N is in danger of failing to secure an election mandate, which may potentially undermine the successful and long-lasting execution of economic reforms.

The government’s capacity to proceed with economic changes may be hampered by societal unrest and poor governance, according to Moody’s.

In order to appease the IMF by fulfilling a prerequisite for authorising a rescue package, the government raised the basic tariff on electricity, which coincided with the most recent increase in fuel prices announced on Monday. This report was released by Moody’s.

Food costs have increased in the nation, where the vast majority is experiencing an unprecedented crisis due to the high cost of living, following the government’s earlier presentation of a budget that included a large increase in income tax for the salaried classes and the implementation of GST on commodities like milk.

The most recent comments were made following Islamabad’s achievement of a staff-level agreement for a $7 billion contract that spans 37 months and is contingent upon final approval by the IMF Executive Board.

It states that Pakistan will need foreign financing totaling about $21 billion in 2024–2025 and $23 billion in 2025–2026, meaning that the country’s present $9.4 billion in reserves won’t be sufficient to cover its needs.

Therefore, according to Moody’s, Pakistan is in an alarming position with regard to its external debt, and the next three to five years will be extremely difficult for the formulation and implementation of policies.
