Imran Khan and Reham Khan arrive for Umrah
Some of his close friends in Jeddah, including Zultec CEO and Saudi Steel CEO Mohamed H. Zakaria and philanthropist Zulqiurnain Ali Khan, welcomed the newlyweds at King Abdul Aziz International Airport.
Zulqiurnain Ali Khan told Arab News “It is a confidential visit,” “Performing Umrah is a grand blessing and Imran and his wife wanted to be here to thank Allah Almighty as they embark on a new phase in their private lives. Obviously, he and Reham are pleased to be here in the sacred ground,” he said.
“They are here to pray for the victims of the Peshawar disaster and for the well being of Pakistan.”
Imran, who heads Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf, is admired among young Pakistanis and has received fabulous support for his campaign for electoral reforms. Few months ago he rallied his supporters for a lengthy sit-in in Islamabad that almost disabled the current government.
His marriage to reham on Jan. 9 has become the talk of the city and his followers are following his every deed. Reham, a television newscaster and anchor, who previously worked for the BBC, looked calm and peaceful on arrival at the airport. She putted a white scarf covering her hair and a light brown shawl wrapped around her shoulders.
A few hours after their arrival, they left for Makah to offer Umrah with fast friends. On Thursday, they will head to Madinah to pray at the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) Mosque.
They will return to Jeddah on Friday where there is a special party arranged for the couple.
In Jeddah, Overseas Pakistanis especially the late Ahsan Rashid played a famous part in organizing Imran’s political party.
