KARACHI: In their efforts for reunion, actress Veena Malik and her husband Asad Bashir Khattak met religious scholar Mufti Naeem Thursday.
Speaking to reporters after hearing both the sides, the Mufti said that Asad is responsible for the causes that led to separation.
‚ÄúAsad took advantage of her fame and enjoyed her wealth despite her sacrifices. I think that Asad is 95 to 98 per cent guilty in this matter,‚ÄĚ Mufti Naeem said.
The development came five days after a family court granted them divorce, ending their three-year marriage.
The court in Lahore accepted Veena‚Äôs ‚Äėkhula‚Äô (divorce) application and ruled in her favour after non-pursuance of the case by Khattak.
The break-up occurred since the couple had developed some differences and could not live together.
According to media reports, Veena Malik had complaints of being roughly treated by her husband.
However, Mufti Naeem has offered his mediation in this matter in order to amicably resolve this issue.
Reports say prominent religious scholar Tariq Jameel is also playing his role in the reconciliation.
It remains to be seen if Mufti Naeem is able to solve their differences, Asad Khattak seems to be optimistic while Veena still insists on separation.
While talking to Samaa recently, Khattak said he would struggle to save his family from breakup. Also, in a message on Twitter, he said ‚Äėeverything would be sorted out‚Äô. - Samaa
