Imran Khan

Imran Khan is the former captain of Pakistan cricket team who led the national side to World Cup glory in 1992 and shot to fame in its wake. He is a graduate from Oxford and became one of the world’s most admired cricketers. After years of fund-raising, Imran Khan opened a cancer hospital in the memory of his mother in Lahore in 1994. Khan’s confidence stems from what he sees is a tsunami of support for the PTI in Pakistan as traditional parties falter amid charges and counter-charges of corruption and petty jealousies. Besides young men and woman of all ages, the charismatic leader inspired the upper class who never got out of their homes to exercise their right to vote. Imran Khan’s party won a good number of seats in Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa province in the 2013 general elections and joined forces with Jamat-e-Islami and Aftab Sherpao’s Qaumi Watan Party to form a coalition government. Accusing his political opponents of massive rigging in the general elections, he launched a fierce movement demanding re-election in 32 constituencies in the Punjab province. Imran Khan had also led march into Islamabad and hold 126-days sit-in to press for a probe into mass irregularities in the elections.
