"No person is as stupid as the man who thinks he has the upper hand in the home," Imran Khan said talking about Bushra Bibi who is also his spiritual guide. "She is way ahead of me on this spiritual path," Imran Khan said. "It is for Bushra Begum that my guests get such a warm welcome in my residence nowadays. Long ago, I remember an incident when I used to stay alone. An American ambassador came and my attendant brought a packet of biscuits and gave him the packet," Imran Khan said.

His enemies are now preparing material for full-blown character assassination. "Now that Eid is over, you will see they are fully prepared for my character assassination. They have hired companies that are readying the material. The father (Shehbaz) is on bail and so is the son (Hamza). Maryam is also out on bail and Nawaz Sharif has been convicted. His sons have fled abroad. So what defence will they have? You can't come up in any democracy if you are out on bail; you can't get any position. What was Jemima's crime? She was my wife and now they have found Farah Khan. Farah's crime is that she is a close associate of Bushra begum," Imran Khan said.
"China is progressing because there is a meritocracy, you have to understand. When a system becomes corrupt, mafias get hold of it, which is a negation of meritocracy," Imran Khan said.
