Following the dissolution of the National Assembly and the vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Imran Khan, Farah Khan, a close friend of first lady Bushra Bibi, has left for Dubai.

Farah reportedly flew to Dubai in the early hours of Monday morning, according to reports. Jamil Gujjar, her husband, has already left the country. Because there was no restraining order, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) did not intervene. Farah Khan has been at the centre of controversy, with serious allegations of corruption levelled against her by the opposition.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and Maryam Nawaz, the vice president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), have both recently accused Farah Khan of corruption.

Farah, a Lahore-based woman, was accused by Maryam Nawaz of accepting bribes on behalf of the government for transfers and postings.

In response to the allegations, PM’s former political aide Shahbaz Gill stated that Maryam began targeting Bushra’s friend after she was unable to find any grounds to criticise her. Farah does not hold any public office and is not a member of the PTI, according to Gill.

He claims the PML-N has a history of defaming women for petty political gain, which he finds repulsive. “Because they [the PML-N] have nothing against the first lady, they are hurling allegations through her friend, Farah Bibi,” he added.

Both women, according to Gill, are apolitical and have no involvement in political matters. “The First Lady isn’t involved in politics… she doesn’t even have a bank account,” he said, adding that criticising a politician’s family members is inappropriate. He expressed regret that the party has been unfairly targeting the First Lady, Bushra Bibi, for the past three years.

In an interview last week, the prime minister stated that he is aware that not only his life is in jeopardy, but that the opposition will also resort to character assassination against him. “Let me inform my country that my life is also in danger; they have plotted to assassinate my character.” “Not only myself, but also my wife and her friend Farah Khan,” the prime minister stated.
