Pakistan media has clarified that Bushra Bibi’s reflection can be seen in mirror. Earlier today, media reports had quoted Pakistan’s Capital TV and stated that some staff member in Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s household has claimed that Khan’s third wife Bushra Bibi’s image does not appear in the mirrors.
Capital TV has now denied ever reporting any such thing. ANI had reported the so-called supernatural claim and Capital TV has clarified that the template used by ANI was a fake image that had gone viral in 2018.

They had rebutted the fake image in 2018 too, saying that Capital TV had never reported about any staff member claiming such about Bushra Bibi.
This news image circulating on social media is absolutely fake, photoshopped and absurd. #CapitalTV condemns this act of forgery. #CapitalTV will take action and lodge the complaint in #FIA‘s Cyber-Crime Wing against those who have misused #CapitalTV‘s branding. pic.twitter.com/6LuweGLSGJ

Following the denial by Capital TV, ANI has deleted their tweet.
It is notable here that supernatural claims and rumours about Bushra Bibi are quite common in Pakistan. Bushra Bibi is known as ‘Pinky Peerni’, a living saint-woman with special powers. Her family from the Wattoo clan in Pakistan’s Pakpattan are the worshippers of the ‘Baba Farid’ shrine n Pakpattan.
In a recent article in Vanity Fair, a senior Pakistani media person was quoted as saying that Imran Khan had consulted Bushra Bibi for spiritual guidance to become PM and he used to give her two vats full of cooked meat as fees. The meat was for Bushra Bibi’s two jinns, the article had stated.
The article had also mentioned that Bushra Bibi, married and a mother of five children, had dreamed years ago that Imran Khan will one day become the PM of Pakistan if he marries the ‘right woman’. She had reportedly tried to get Khan married to her sister and her daughter before finally deciding that she herself was the ‘right woman’.
So while reports of Bushra Bibi’s reflection not seen in mirror are untrue, as of now, we will keep you posted if we get updates on her pet jinns.
