Imran-Reham split up, and everyone had something to say about it

Imran-Reham split up, and everyone had something to say about it

While some commented on the matter with appropriate seriousness, others weren't as sensible..
Updated 30 Oct, 2015

Imran and Reham Khan have remained one of Pakistan's most-talked-about couples throughout their marriage and now divorce.

While some commented on the end of their marriage with appropriate seriousness...

...others wondered what the fuss was about:

Some took away a life lesson...

...while the rest did some number-crunching:

Some came to realise that the show is indeed over...

...but others couldn't help but celebrate IK's renewed singlehood:

Of course, there was plenty of punning:

And the celebs also weighed in...

Hira Tareen called out the misogynistic media coverage of the divorce...

Imran Abbas also sent out words of wisdom to his fan following:

Angeline Malik was suitably sympathetic:

"When two people come together, it's always a reason to celebrate, but when that union breaks, it's always sad. Whatever reason it may be, it is always bad news. My sympathies are with both of them," she said to Images.

But Adeel Hashmi had a completely different kind of two cents to share:

"@AdeelHashmi3: She could've had her name written in history. Instead she decided to be a mere footnote," he tweeted

...and was (appropriately) bashed for it:

Fasi Zaka shared an earthquake metaphor:

Imran Khan enters into Dr. Ejaz Rehman Club !

Grow up man, IK, and make right decisions in life.... and in our lives also.

It's 21st century for goodness sake, people get married for all the right reasons and sometimes things don't work out and it's best for all concerned to separate and try their luck elsewhere! What's the big deal?

It is very sad news and must be devastating for both, especially Imran Khan because he got a lot more to lose from this episode. This marriage can be portrayed as a case of flawed judgement by his opponents. I hope he is able to refocus on his political career because Pakistan is benefiting from having an honest and outspoken leader like him on the stage.
Manjeet Oct 30, 2015 03:28pm
Feeling so sad...a break up of love always hurts..
Ayesha Oct 30, 2015 03:29pm
I hate people who stick their nose in other people's business
James Oct 30, 2015 03:46pm
He is still the same Imran Khan. Great political leader.
Afzal Oct 30, 2015 03:51pm
it is so sad. I am gutted. this divorce should have never happened.
Annabel Oct 30, 2015 04:09pm
Money and fame trumps old age anytime he will have a beeline for takers hopes he picks using his better judgement like the 92 World Cup team and rejects gold diggers and fame seekers who want to ride his coat-tails Jemima was his intellectual equal and was not a gold digger as she was many times richer then he and thus was not a gold digger I think he needs to compromise because if he is looking for gold he might unearth fools gold instead
M.Saeed Oct 30, 2015 04:09pm
I am really sorry for Reham but Imran has proved himself being not a family man. He had married against the wishes of his family and now, he has failed to get along with his passion about children because he had said he had married Reham because of her wonderful ways of raising children of good manners. Already, he has his political divorce of Hashmi to explain and now already there are news about Shah Mehmud Qureshi also having bad blood with him. What really is his real nature?
Akber Eh Oct 30, 2015 04:24pm
Adeel Hashmi's tweet was worse.. Imran Abbas's was very mature.. But definitely being impartial one can say than Khan Sb. rushed into a relationship..
Mobeen Oct 30, 2015 04:33pm
I agree that it is a personal matter. But when you are leader and so many people taking you as a role model. You do become public property.
Gul Pasha Oct 30, 2015 04:35pm
I feel pity for Reham.
Sandhu Oct 30, 2015 04:36pm
I would say its really sad to know. But its personal life of IK we should not scandalize it.
Kemolican (KEMU) Oct 30, 2015 04:36pm
But Sorry I have Nothing To sAy about it coz it would me immoral nd its their personal matter and i am not such a person to Poke My Nose Into It.
jawed Oct 30, 2015 04:39pm
IK is a difficult person to get along .......if he allowed her to join politics it would be a plus point for her
Hasan Nasim Oct 30, 2015 04:47pm
I feel shock when i here this news. Very sad & jolting whole friends of Mr. Imran Khan & Ms. Reham.
Hasan Nasim Oct 30, 2015 04:56pm
Please accept my sad feeling's on this momment linking your collapse of marriage.
Jawaid Islam Oct 30, 2015 05:05pm
It was a rushed decision on part of IK; Reham was everywhere after the marriage; IK should have known; Jemima spent the years married to IK in the background! She was the real BHABHI and still remains so!
Apache Oct 30, 2015 05:08pm
no hamza ali abbasi tweet?
Hamaad Oct 30, 2015 05:44pm
Sad news. Divorce happens only when both parties have differences in their core values; the rest can be resolved and be compromised.
Amir Oct 30, 2015 06:11pm
With the home tension over IK will now have the time and energy to go after NS/SS&Co with more determination and vigor! All the best!
Aseem Oct 30, 2015 06:43pm
Great leaders are careful, judicious, committed and serious in personal matters as well. Imran is behaving more like a hollywood personality and less like a leader of a conservative people. And he projects himself to be a "leader with a vision". His action is no where close to any great leader.This behaviour is totally unbecoming of person who dreams to be the next prime minister of the country. He had numerous affairs during his illustrious career as a cricketer. Then he married a white lady which was totally unacceptable to the pakistani society. When he realized that his political career wouldn't fly unless he got rid of her, he divorced her. Next he married this local lady assuming that it will give him widespread acceptance in the country. The marriage ended up in a disasterin just 10 months. So much for his personal life, but is this what the pakistani society expect of a person who wishes to lead the country?
Jay Oct 30, 2015 07:09pm
Quite a shocking news. I wouldn't call it poking nose into personal matter. All public figures go through this. When people love them they want to share both good and bad of lives of their heroes. Imran Khan is a public figure internationally. But we should not blame one person in this kind of situation , without knowing the story of both sides. Even the true story will not help , because it is all about chemistry not the story.
Kamran Oct 30, 2015 07:21pm
IK proven again that he is a not scared of taking big decisions.
Manzoor Oct 30, 2015 08:03pm
It is not a private matter. How much notice public takes of thousands of divorces that take place daily. A politician, that too of Imrans stature is a public property and all his action need to be thoroughly scrutinized. It turns out Imran does not speak the truth. Only few weeks back he denied any rumors about his troubling marriage whereas the reality was opposite. A leader of national stature , Imran thus revealed his faultline of credibility gap.
Faizan Oct 30, 2015 08:46pm
But, whatever, it was one of the most dashing and favourite couple.
Afsana Oct 30, 2015 09:32pm
It's not a big deal...
Abdullah Oct 30, 2015 10:25pm
Some politician sacrifice their happiness in fear that they would loss their status or someone will occupy their place
nafees ahmad Oct 30, 2015 10:43pm
Unstable and naive in every way. Too egotistical and too ambitious. We lack leaders le who are humble and can relate to masses. What a pity.

It is the End of Love Marriage. God bless on Them
independentthinker Oct 30, 2015 11:08pm
Those readers who have something negative to say about this divorce are fighting some personal issues of their own. Misery loves company and only when one is miserable himself/herself, will they make such comments - to me, I say congratulations for knowing soon enough that you are not compatible and good luck to both of you in your future endeavors.
pakistan Oct 30, 2015 11:29pm
who cares.
Nc Oct 31, 2015 12:04am
Lucky guy... Being single for a guy is great. Looking forward to moving on with more pressing needs.
Rahul Oct 31, 2015 12:51am
The looked fantastic together no matter what.
Bravos Oct 31, 2015 07:05am
Absolutely private episode ,please therefore respect their privacy.Let IK devote his attention towards PTI,and cancer hospitals.
Asif Oct 31, 2015 08:18am
@nafees ahmad : what a stupid and irrelevant comment.
Ashutosh Mishra Oct 31, 2015 11:50am
Actually, I am feeling thoda sad only. It isn't nice. People coming together in a love bond is healthy for the two. Separation brings countless negative emotions hurting both. Peace to both of them from India.
True Oct 31, 2015 05:03pm
No more First Lady????
noshin Oct 31, 2015 06:16pm
sad move by so called Khan

Captain in hat trick.
jalwa Oct 31, 2015 10:01pm
Married or divorced, Imran Khan commands great respect for his struggle for the democracy and betterment of the people of Pakistan. It did not dwindle when he fell from a stage while campaigning and now could not maintain a married life
Abbas Syed Oct 31, 2015 11:59pm
Only couple of days back I read a well written article in your newspaper: Pakistanis obsession with divorce, forgot the name of the author. The article reflected the feelings of people of Pakistan who have chosen to comment on the IK and RK split. Understandably it was devastating for a woman to get a divorce in the feudal society where she was totally dependent on man. Although not completely Pakistan is no longer a feudal society. Lot more girls in Pakistan are acquiring education and becoming independent and no longer dependent on man. People get married and divorced and move on. I recall a film song; Tu nahee aur sahee aur nahee aur sahee.
Abdulla Hussain Nov 02, 2015 05:10pm
I think the very idea of getting married to Imran Khan was more than the simple desire to marry him. The desire also seems to be a part of Imran Khan's expected broader future assignments. For Imran Khan if he wanted an educated women to be his house wife then he should not have selected a seasoned carrier oriented women. It was too much to expect Reham Khan to remain in home & cook food for her husband, she needed an identity of her own as wife of IK & the possibility of being first women. Should IK decide in future to marry again he should not opt for a carrier women rather he should search for a soulmate.
Muhammad Siddique Wahla Nov 03, 2015 08:41am
I want to say that Imran and Reham's story was a personal matter. No one has a right to discussed and involved anyone personal life. Because the husband and wife relation is very soft, precious and strong relation. if anyone understand of such relation i think nobody will be involved and disclose the others personal matters. Plz just involve and discussed own life and try to become the best for society. So that the peoples knowing to you as "such person is a great". plz dont involve and dont passed any kind of comments to anyone's personal life. If you will do then you will be ready to face such problems in future.
