Anoushey Ashraf, a TV host and radio personality, showed her support for former first lady Bushra Bibi on Friday, as she has been subjected to even more scrutiny since her husband, former premier Imran Khan, was ousted from office.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, the RJ re-shared a video clip of Khan lauding his wife’s hospitality. The former prime minister credited her for taking care of the guests that show up at their home in Bani Gala.
Khan recently sat down for an interview with the actor Shaan Shahid on HUM News. “I am fortunate enough to have Bushra Bibi in my life,” said the PTI chairman. “Because of her, we are able to take care of our guests.”
“I remember once the American ambassador showed up at my place and I lived alone,” he added. “My house help was rushed to get something for refreshment for the guest and he brought a packet of biscuits, packed and placed it in front of him.”
He said that his wife also keeps a check on him to make sure he is hospitable in her absence. “She is very strict about taking care of guests and if I don’t do it, she’s strict with me as well,” Imran told the show host.
Anoushey Ashraf defends Bushra Bibi
Ashraf re-shared the clip of the interview and wrote, “Bushra Bibi has only come under terrible scrutiny even if she chooses to remain out of the eyes of the media”.
The renowned TV host even said that everyone has been particularly “mean” to her lately and that she would love to meet her one day. In addition, the 39-year-old also asked for help from her followers if anyone could make this happen soon.

The former cricketer and Bushra Bibi tied the knot early in 2018, surrounded by close family and friends. The union is Khan’s third marriage after he divorced Reham Khan in late 2015.
Bushra Bibi, even though she was the first lady, kept a low profile, choosing instead to work on various charitable causes behind the scenes. She was criticized for her face veil when Imran was officially sworn in as prime minister. That criticism led to many netizens taking to different social media platforms in her defense, calling on people to let her wear what she wants.
It may be recalled that Shahbaz Gill recently also slammed PML-N leaders for dragging Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi into politics and making “black magic allegations” against her.
