Imran Khan has been in the spot light again. On this occasion not for his cricket but for his defiant presence on the political canvas of Pakistan. While he is not a starter in politics, exhausting his ribs through roaring public speeches, and has languished around for nearly two decades, it is only now that he is being perceived as a serious contender.
Imran’s personal life and character has already drawn a lot of coverage. Rising from the depths, his movement for justice party enjoys a strong voice in the opposition. He has managed to draw huge crowds at voting boothsan uncommon spectacle in Pakistan. His opponents hate his guts, and more so, the coverage he gets in the social media. ‘Politeness has never been one of his virtues,’ concedes an average Nawaz Sharif faithful, rather curtly. His contemporaries may despise him for his open stage bluntness and tongue-lashing, but the man undoubtedly possesses tremendous persuasive powers to bring about people to his line of thinking. The youth loves him, believes in him and so, empowers him. His ideas are revolutionary and prophetic. He remains a celebrated figure and a serious crowd puller. Imran Khan’s arduous political journey is a territory that deserves to be explored.
