LAHORE – Pakistan’s Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has reportedly tied the knot with a TV show host, without the consent of his first wife.
The PML-N leader secretly married Dr Shafaq Hira some two weeks ago, sources told Daily Pakistan.
When the news reached his first wife, Ms Ghazala Saad, she became furious and threatened Mr. Rafique to leave the house and her children.
Dr Shafaq is a TV anchor, currently working at state-run Pakistan Television.
She completed her MBBS from Abbottabad Medical College and hails from Wah Cantonment.
The minister’s personal assistant says he is ‘unaware of the development’.
Earlier, comedian Sohail Ahmed, best known as Azizi, had also disclosed Saad Rafique’s marriage in his programme, Hasb-e-Haal.
“A PML-N minister in federal government has married a PTV programme host in Islamabad. However, the news is being kept a secret,” Azizi hinted during the show which runs on Dunya TV.
However, the report is still to be confirmed by independent sources.
