Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar's husband has rubbished rumours about his spouse having an affair with Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of President Asif Ali Zardari.

Industrialist Feroz Gulzar said he was informed by his cousins regarding the “baseless story”, who discouraged him from reading the story saying it was not “worth reading”. Gulzar has indicated that he has not seen the details of the whole text that was reported by a Bangladeshi tabloid, Weekly Blitz.

Gulzar, the father of two young daughters, Inaya and Deena, said it was tragic that the gossip writer had “dragged the small angels in his fabrication,” reports The News.

He also brushed aside the proposal for asking U.S. authorities to dig out the element responsible for fabricating the story.

According to the tabloid, Gulzar had moved an official application seeking details of Khar’s phone calls, which may help him find out the truth behind the rumours of the love affair.
Zardari, according to the tabloid, opposed his young son's involvement with a woman who is eleven years older than him and is a married woman with two daughters.

Zardari reportedly believes that Bilawal’s “immature” move will not only destroy his political career but it would mow down the future of PPP which was found by Bilawal’s grandfather, the late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and the legacy was carried forward by Bilawal’s mother late Benazir Bhutto.

The tabloid reported that Khar has decided to end her marriage with Gulzar to settle down with Bilawal in Switzerland. The tabloid even revealed few content from one of the hand-written letters which were sent by Khar to Bilawal.

Khar, according to the tabloid, wrote, “The foundation of our relations is eternal and soon we shall be just ourselves.”
The tabloid also claimed that Bilawal had threatened to quit PPP when he was advised by his father to end his relationship with Khar.
