Imran Khan weds again?

0 0 0

Imran Khan is a hero and heroes can do no wrong. He has decided to marry again. Marriage is obviously his personal decision and a private matter but he is a public figure. Public figures in Pakistan have also engaged in multiple marriages without any fuss. Why are we picking on him?

He seems proud that he is achieving something wonderful; she must be glad that she was able to convince him of it. But there are genuine public concerns because he thinks, and we agree that he is different. A lot of us want be like him and live in his Naya Pakistan.

Marriage can be an ordeal but Imran Khan perhaps likes the sound of wedding bells. Like Bollywood films, his imagination only carries him as far as the altar. What he has not learnt is that wedding is an event with a pledge, and marriage is about fulfilling that pledge. Wife is not a new car either, which you buy to drive occasionally while a driver maintains it otherwise.

Imran Khan has proposed to his faith healer. This looks bizarre, but can be interpreted as Transference. It is a common experience among those having psychodynamic therapy. I may be biased but psychiatrists are the modern day successors of Sufis and Saints. This point, even with evidence, goes lost on them as Rafiq Akhtar spent a quarter of his lecture (three published pages) rebutting me to his followers and I still await Sarfraz........
