ISLAMABAD: Reham Khan, wife of Chairman PTI Imran Khan, on Wednesday responded to a story of Daily Mail which claimed that the college which Reham says she has studied from does not offer any course in broadcast journalism.

Resonding to the story, Reham said that this is the reason why she does not read the Daily Mail.

She also criticised Pakistan TV channels saying that this morning is a great example of why she does not watch local TV channels.

“If you try to address real pertinent issues in Pakistan then a lobby will attack you. It comes with the domain. It will not deter me,” Reham said on the microblogging site Twitter.

Few people have an agenda and media is promoting their senseless propaganda, she said.

However, she did not answer the specific allegation of fake degree levelled by the British newspaper.

According to a London-based newspaper “Daily Mail”, Reham Khan, a 42-year-old TV anchor, had stated on her official website that she won her post as a reporter on the BBC regional show South Today after starting a postgraduate course ‘in Broadcast Journalism at North Lindsay (sic) College’, in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.

However, according to officials at North Lindsey, it has never offered such a course, the newspaper reported.

“Indeed, it does not teach journalism at all. Furthermore, they can find no record of anyone bearing Khan’s name or age ever having enrolled,” Daily Mail report said.

The newspaper quoted a spokesman as saying that “we do not have anyone by those names or date of birth having attended this college. We have never done a degree in broadcast journalism.
