Tribune’s Gamechangers 2011: Imran Khan

Changing the political landscape in Pakistan.


Express January 08, 2012

Heartthrob, playboy, cricketer, politician?

Imran Khan has worn all these hats and they seem to have fit him well. This year, he has changed the political landscape of Pakistan with the growing popularity of his party Tehreek-i-insaf, Movement for Justice, that seems to be a formidable player in the coming elections.

After critics repeatedly dismissed him as being a political dwarf, Imran silenced naysayers by rallying hundreds of thousand supporters to his rallies in Lahore and Karachi. Calling for an end to corruption and to Pakistan’s subservience to America, Imran has mobilized the youth of Pakistan and promised to bring about ‘change’ in the next election.

Quote of the year: "Those in Raiwind and Islamabad should know that it is not a flood that is coming, but a tsunami."
