Asif Zardari got married to Tanveer Zamani according to Muslim Shiyat Bylaws in Dubai last week.
The ceremony has not been held.
However the marriage religious vows, paper work and prenuptials have been confirmed. Nine black goats, 6 cows and 1 camel was sacrificed at this sacred occasion.
This happened 3 years after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
She is a Mediterranean descent American resident, and she lives in Gramercy Park, Manhattan, New York.
Zamani is a practicing physician and known to be a Bhutto party loyalist.
She earned PhD degree in International Politics from UK. She owns estates in London, Dubai, Islamabad and Manhattan.
Zamani is a known Democrat and supported Obama’s 2008 election campaign. She actively participated in Obama’s Health Care reform bill to make it a law.
Recently, she has been prohibited to attend the public political meetings due to her security issues. Pres. Zardari in a meeting with Obama on 1/14/11 in DC, requested his help in acquiring security for Zamani.
It has been claimed that Zardari is among the four richest men in Pakistan.
It has been noticed that with the advent of Zamani in his life for the last 8 months, he has changed a lot.
He seemed to find refuge in trusting her loyalty to him more than the party. The couple might have faced many domestic, social and political issues before they decided to turn this long distance, under cover- relationship into a life time partnership.
