People said I’m a gold digger and married Amir for money: Faryal

The ongoing feud between boxer Amir Khan’s wife, Faryal Makhdoom and his family has taken a new turn. Talking on the This Morning TV show recently, Faryal attacked the boxer’s family yet again.

According to, the beauty v-logger was called an evil wife by Amir’s father, Sajjad Khan in an exclusive interview with the publication.


“She is pushing Amir to the limit with her accusations and I feel very sorry for my son. It is not fair. While he is working so hard with his foundation, helping people he doesn’t even know but who are so deprived and he just wants to make them happy, look what his wife is doing?” said Sajjad.

“She’s not picking up the phone or calling us to try and make amends. Now, with her big ego she’s gone on national TV and is stuttering through the interview. It’s crazy. She said she’s doing it with her husband’s blessings but I don’t think so.”

Faryal, who is also a 25-year-old model, claimed that she was bullied in the Khan household for many years. She claimed that she was called names by her brother-in-law for getting plastic surgery done, who often compared her to Micheal Jackson.


Faryal also opened up about being called a gold digger. “When I didn’t work and I used to just stay home I was called a gold digger. People would say I’m with Amir for his money,” she shared.


However, Sajjad and his manager have called out all the accusations false, saying that he tried to reason with his daughter-in-law, but it was of no use. “She is trying to come between us, she is trying to break up the very close relationship we have with Amir. She is a very evil woman. I have given and taken with her. We all have. All she wants is the limelight.”

Sajjad added, “He’s tried his best to calm things down but she goes against him. Sooner or later I wouldn’t be surprised if he just wants out. The writing’s on the wall.”


Talking about the trouble in his son’s marriage, Sajjad said that the only problem is that his Faryal will not change.
“She should be doing the best for her husband and she’s not. I don’t want to see them get divorced for their daughter’ sake. I hope they don’t get divorced, absolutely not. I hope they live happily after for the rest of their lives.”


Upon his arrival in the UK, the former unified light-welterweight world champion will have a talk with his family about the allegations made by Faryal.

“Amir’s back and forth all the time, here, there and everywhere but when’s he’s got time we’ll sit down and talk,” said Sajjad.

“We’re very close and if there are problems he can’t cope with he’ll tell me.”

Memories of APS victims strengthen my patriotism: Gen Bajwa

Memories of APS victims strengthen my patriotism: Gen Bajwa

Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday said he views pictures of Army Public School massacre victims to keep his patriotism alive.

“The blood of APS victims is an obligation on the nation and the armed forces,” the army chief said while addressing a memorial held to mark the two-year anniversary of the deadly school massacre.

A memorial was held at the military-run school two years after terrorists perpetrated the most sickening violence in the history of Pakistan, methodically killing 144 people, mostly pupils.


“We will remember the sacrifices of the APS children and all institutions stand with the bereaved families in their tragedy” the COAS said. “We will continue the struggle and do whatever possible to live up to their expectations.”

Army chief also said the nation and military institutions were standing firm with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the fight against terror.

Gen Bajwa said armed forces guarantee security of the nation. He also said the armed forces are striving to bring the war against terrorism to a conclusion to provide the country with a peaceful future. “We will not rest until terrorism is completely uprooted,” the Army chief remarked.


Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan was fighting a war of its survival, saying numerous sacrificed had helped break the backbone of terrorism. The premier further said that the government was determined to bring strength and stability to the country.

Further, in a statement, Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman said that the force will not rest until uprooting terrorism completely. Praising the martyrs of APS, the Air chief said the nation will not forget their sacrifices.

Earlier, the current principal of the military-run school said, “The time of the attack was extremely difficult for the whole country. It felt as though we would never be able to come out of this pain. But we came out of that time better and stood strong in front of the enemy.”


Paying tribute to the 144 victims, mostly school children, she said, “We have not forgotten our children, our brave Principal, Tahira Kazi and the young soldiers whose martyrdom strengthened the country.”

Army chief Gen Qamar Jawed Bajwa laid a wreath and offered prayers at the memorial.

The gruesome massacre had served as a binding force for Pakistanis in the fight against terrorism. The political and military leadership had given a clarion call against terrorists, launching a comprehensive national strategy to defeat the menace.

Though the attack’s mastermind and his facilitators have been eliminated, the grieving parents continue to call for a judicial inquiry to unmask those responsible for the deadly assault and high number of casualties.
