Amir Khan’s wife has branded the Government a “dictatorship” after it introduced travel restrictions on Dubai.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps yesterday announced that any Brits returning to the UK from the United Arab Emirates will have to quarantine from 4am on Tuesday, January 12.

It came after the country recorded a 52% surge in the number of coronavirus cases.

Faryal Makhdoom, 29, lashed out at the decision on social media, having flown to Dubai in December.

She posted on Snapchat: “The British government has failed the UK.

“New rules around every corner with practically no warning. Feel like I'm living in a dictatorship.”

Last month, Faryal told her Instagram followers that she had lost her sense of taste and hadn't been eating well for around two weeks.

However, she and Amir later jetted off to Dubai and shared snaps of their holiday on social media.

Back in May, Amir broke lockdown rules to arrange a family reunion with his parents after a long-standing feud.

He, Faryal, and their three children visited his parents’ home to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, while his siblings and cousins were also present.

It was the first time his parents Shah and Falek met their grandson, Muhammad Zaviyar, who was born last February.

A family source told MailOnline : “It was a very emotional reunion because both Shah and Falak have really missed not seeing Amir and his family.

“They were also devastated that they had not seen their grandson and there were a lot of tears when they laid eyes on him for the first time.

“There’s been a lot of harsh words exchanged between the two sides over the past few months, but this current coronavirus situation has made them see what’s really important. And that is your family."

In April, Khan hosted a take-away for five friends in April.

After posting a video of the party on his Instagram feed, he later deleted it and said he was “truly sorry to the British public”.
