Jemima Goldsmith, ex-spouse of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, on Thursday while reacting to the assassination attempt on the life of the former Prime Minister expressed gratitude to Almighty God that he is safe.
In her latest Tweet, she said, “The news we dread. Thank God he’s okay. And thank you from his sons to the heroic man in the crowd who tackled the gunman.” She also tweeted the picture of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) worker Ibtisam, who confronted the attacker to save the life of the former PM, terming him a hero.

Showbiz celebrities also expressed their deep concerns and anger over this incident. Seasoned actor Adnan Siddiqui shared on Twitter. “May Allah keep Imran Khan and others safe and my prayers are for speedy recovery of everyone who’s got injured in this violence. Armeena Rana Khan tweeted, “I am shell-shocked! Did these guys seriously think that they can get away with this in today’s world? I wish him and all those injured a speedy recovery.”
Nadia Jamil, too, commented, “Shaken to the core.” She added, “We have as a nation, lived through so much violence and seen our leaders hung, shot, and blown up by bombs. Witnessed our people, children being blown apart, torn apart. We have deep flaws but we have an even deeper beauty in our soul, our narrative. I will not lose hope for us.” She further shared, “The attack on the life of Imran Khan is an ugly reminder of the short-sighted, reactionary madness in our politics. Thank Allah Imran Khan is safe.
