Key Highlights:

  1. Legal Charges: PTI lawyers face accusations of terrorism and nine other charges after allegedly attacking Khawar Maneka.
  2. Courtroom Incident: The assault occurred outside a courthouse during a session concerning Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi’s nikah case.
  3. Background: The incident follows previous conflicts surrounding the controversial marriage and its legal challenges.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawyers have been booked following an alleged attack on Khawar Maneka, the former husband of Bushra Bibi, outside a courthouse, according to an ARY News report. The FIR lists 20-25 individuals, including Advocate Usman Riaz, Mirza Asim, Zahid Bashir, and Ansar Kiani, accused of assaulting Maneka and causing injuries.

The lawyers face serious charges, including terrorism and nine other counts, for allegedly attempting to intimidate and manipulate judicial proceedings. The incident reportedly involved Fatehullah, Naeem Panjotha, and Advocate Ejaz Bhatti, who purportedly assaulted Maneka. Efforts by officials Irshad and Waheed to intervene were reportedly thwarted by the lawyers.

During the court session presided over by Judge Shahrukh Arjumand, the legal plea of Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi against their nikah case conviction was under review. Earlier, Maneka had been targeted by women outside the courthouse, allegedly in retaliation for derogatory remarks he made during the hearing.

The controversy stems from Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi’s marriage in February 2018 in Lahore, which was a private affair with only close relatives and friends in attendance. The nikah was officiated by Mufti Saeed, with former PTI leader Awn Chaudhary and former SAPM Zulfi Bukhari as witnesses. Maneka challenged the marriage’s legality under Sharia laws, accusing the couple of marrying within the “iddat period” following a divorce and engaging in fornication.

Judge Qudratullah later deemed the marriage ‘un-Islamic,’ sentencing Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi to seven years of imprisonment each and fining them PKR 500,000 for the alleged violations【source】.
