Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has been awarded an honorary fellowship by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) in recognition for his contribution to cancer services.

The fellowship has been awarded for his contribution through the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre.

The RCPE is a professional membership organisation with a membership of over 10,000 “fellows” in 91 countries.

Imran Khan founded Shaukat Khanum on December 29, 1994.

The inspiration for the hospital and research centre came after the death of his mother, Mrs Shaukat Khanum, due to cancer.

The trust uses donations to help patients with cancer through the application of modern methods of curative and palliative therapy free of cost.

As a Pakistani who lived in Australia in the 1990s (before we became associated with terrorism), I cannot tell you how good it felt when every time I introduced myself and where I came from, the first thing that most Aussies said is "Imran Khan" since that is how they knew Pakistan. The man is a great ambassador for Pakistan and a tremendous, in fact, the only source of respect for millions of expatriate Pakistanis. I wish him the best, always!

Say what you will but Imran is a class apart. Those who still can't see the difference between him and the rest of our sordid politicians, I can only say: Wake up, don't waste your vote this time by giving the same lot another chance. It is time to give the Kaptaan a chance. Has he failed us yet?
