A Love story of Barkha Dutt and Her Two Muslim Husbands

A Love story of Barkha Dutt and Her Two Muslim Husbands

Senior Journalist of NDTV, 43-year-old Ms. Barkha Dutt whose marital status is disputed, is known for her personal attacks on other people.

On the contrary, she strongly opposes any step to encroach her privacy whenever her personal life is questioned. No wonder, she has denied timely about her marriage even once though she has married twice and that too to Kashmiri Muslims.

Interestingly, Barkha even tweeted about it a year back – 

Here’s more. For the record I am not married. But if I were, whether to a Hindu or Muslim should be irrelevant. Bigoted crap — barkha dutt (@BDUTT) June 4, 2014

Well, logically speaking that’s correct and totally fine. After all, we may have the right to interrogate about her professional life, but we definitely do not have any rights to question her personal life. However, this ‘very’ rule Barkha Dutt constantly fails to adapt in her professional life. And this is precisely the reason why we are interested in her ‘private life’ which we will share here as follows:

The First Husband of Barkha Dutt

The exact year of her marriage is unknown but it seems that she married and even divorced a Kashmiri Muslim who is known as ‘Mir’. Nothing is much known about him except the fact that he is a Kashmiri Muslim. So, her first husband mostly remains a ‘Mr. X’ to all of us. However, we have a pivotal information and that he was a certain ‘Kashmiri Muslim’. Also, we have heard that this marriage lasted for only 6 months.

Reminds me of the term ‘starter marriage’ where the marriage leads to early divorce and the couple forgets ‘it’ completely as this type of marriage is seen as a form of groundwork for a successive, more lasting marriage with different partners, of course. Perhaps this is the reason why she never came out in the open as ‘it’ was just a starter marriage, you see!

Barkha Dutt’s Second Husband Was Linked to Anti-India Organization

After divorcing Mir, it is said that Barkha started dating and even married the economist and Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Bank, Dr. Haseeb Drabu. Now since he was in the office from 2005 to 2010, it is most likely that she married him in these years.

He was sacked from his position in 2010 after an IB Report confirmed Mr. Drabu’s close relations with Hurriyat hardliners and PDP. The report mentioned that Mr. Drabu was sharing confidential information of the bank with the two organizations. Now since that act of providing critical information to anti-India organization was mainly to sabotage Indian interests, he was sacked by the Omar Abdullah Government. Reportedly, he also anticipated a separate currency for Jammu and Kashmir terming it as ‘Karra’. Next, he left Kashmir for Mumbai. (Source)

He is currently the Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister as he formally joined PDP last year and even won the 2015 election with a high margin. It is said that Drabu and Barkha Dutt were the people who negotiated with BJP from the PDP side. We now hear the couple is divorced.
