Bushra Bibi Declared Medically Fit After Health Concerns

Bushra Bibi, the wife of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, has been pronounced healthy following a comprehensive health check-up conducted by doctors from the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS). The examination took place at Bushra Bibi's Bani Gala residence, which is currently serving as a sub-jail for the former first lady.

On Monday afternoon, Bushra Bibi experienced chest pain and complained of feeling unwell. Doctors at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi initially examined her and advised her to consult specialists, particularly a heart specialist at PIMS, for further satisfaction. A team of PIMS doctors, including Dr. Bushra Liaquat, Dr. Hira, and Dr. Sidra (a cardiologist), visited Bushra Bibi's residence from 11:00 PM to 12:15 AM to conduct a detailed medical examination.

The medical team declared Bushra Bibi completely fit and advised her to take care of her diet. They recommended that she undergo a 'gastroenterology assessment' to evaluate any underlying medical issues related to her stomach and intestines. The doctors also suggested dietary and lifestyle changes to address her complaints of acidity and chest pain.

Last week, Bushra Bibi had undergone a comprehensive medical evaluation supervised by Imran Khan's family physician at a private hospital in Islamabad. Various tests, including endoscopy, ultrasound, echo, and ECG, were performed during the check-up. Hospital sources stated that Bushra Bibi only had a minor gastric issue, and her medical reports were cleared by the doctors. However, she declined to undergo a blood test or provide a blood sample during the visit.

Why this matters: The health concerns surrounding Bushra Bibi have prompted inquiries about her well-being and the conditions of her detention. As the wife of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is currently facing legal challenges, Bushra Bibi's health and safety have become a matter of public interest and political significance.

The report of Bushra Bibi's health condition has been sent to higher authorities. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders have demanded that Bushra Bibi be immediately transferred to Shaukat Khanum Hospital, where doctors of her and Imran Khan's choice can examine her health. They have warned that those in power will be held accountable if anything happens to Bushra Bibi, emphasizing that her safety and security are now at risk.
