www.insaf.pk Imran Khan completes the Pakistan Cricket Team, Activist, Philanthropist and Pakistani Prime Minister (2018) Imran Ahmad Khan Niazi (born on the 25th of November, Pakistan), who became a national hero after guiding Pakistan’s national team to success in the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
Khan was born into a affluent Pashtun family in Lahore and was trained at prestigious education establishments in Pakistan and the United Kingdom, including the Royal Grammar School in Worcester and Lahore’s Aitchison College. The families of Javed Burki and Majid Khan, both of whom acted as the captains of the national team in Pakistan, comprised some senior cricket players, amongst them.
During his teens, Imran Khan played cricket in Pakistan and the United Kingdom and studied philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Oxford. Khan played his first national team match in 1971, but he only took a permanent place in the squad after his diploma from Oxford in 1976.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Khan was an outstanding bowler and all-in-one and was chosen a team captain from Pakistan in 1982. The strong Athletic and appearances of Khan made him a celebrity in Pakistan and England and the British tabloid press gave fuel to his numerous appearances at fashionable nightclubs in London. Khan earned his biggest success in sport in 1992 when he led a squad of Pakistan in the final to defeat England for the first World Cup title. He retired in the same year and became one of the best cricket stars in the country.
Khan stayed in the public spotlight as a philanthropist until 1992. He was spiritually awoken to follow Sufi mysticism and to throw away his former portrayal as a playboy. Through one of its philanthropic projects, Khan was the main donor of Lahore’s Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Institute, through 1994. Khan ‘s mother who died of cancer in 1985 gave his name to the facility.
Entry into Politics:
After he retired from cricket, Khan was a vocal opponent of Pakistan ‘s government maladministration and corruption. In 1996, Tehreek-e-Insaf (Justice Movement) set up his own political party. In the general elections conducted the next year, the newly established party received fewer than 1 per cent of the vote and struggled to secure any seats in the National Assembly, but was marginally stronger in 2002, retaining a single seat Khan had occupied. Khan claimed that the electoral bribery was liable for his party’s weak overall vote.
In October 2007, Khan belonged to a group of legislators who renounced their presidential appeal. The presidential election nominee for Pervez Musharraf. During a raid on Musharraf’s opponents who had claimed the state of emergency, Khan was briefly detained in November. Tehreek-e-Insaf denounced the emergency state which ended in mid-December and at the 2008 national elections boycotted Musharraf’s rule.
During the elections by Tehreek-e-Insaf, Khan ‘s nationalist positions have received support, particularly among young people. In Pakistan, he kept opposing injustice and economic disparity and criticized coordination between the Pakistani Government and the United States in battling activists along the frontier with Afghanistan. He also reported against Pakistan’s political and economic leaders, suspected of being Westernized and out of contact with Pakistan’s social and cultural values.
Khan’s writings included Warrior Race: A Trip Across Tribal Pathan Land (1993) and Pakistan: A Personal History (2011).
In the months preceding from the general elections scheduled for early 2013, Khan and his group drew huge crowds and gained help from a variety of seasoned lawmakers from existing Pakistani parties. A 2012 opinion poll established Khan to be Pakistan’s most influential political leader, indicating Khan’s rising political fortune.
A few days before the polls in May 2013, Khan injured his head and back when he slipped off a stage at a campaign rally. Hours later, he tried to make a brief statement to the public on Television from his sick bed. The elections reported Tehreek-e-Insaf’s highest total, but the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz(PML-N), headed by Nawaz Sharif has still secured less than half the number of seats. Khan alleged electoral violence against PML-N. Four months of protest in late 2014 he and other opposition figures prompted Sharif to withdraw after his call for an inquiry was not fulfilled.
Sharif’s protests were not removed, but suspicions of corruption were heightened when Panama Papers tied his family with offshore holdings. Since the Supreme Court decided to hold an investigation, towards the end of 2016 Khan organized a fresh wave of marches, but he ignored them. In 2017, the inquiry disqualified Sharif and pressured him to give up. Previously, Khan has already been disqualified by the Supreme Court in a different case, but not by offshore assets.
Elections took place in July 2018 the following year. Khan campaigned on a promise to fight inequality and injustice, though he had to deal with allegations that the military was too relaxed. In the national assembly, Tehreek-e-Insaf won a number of seats which helped Khan to form a coalition with independent parliamentarians. On 18 August he was elected Prime Minister.
Khan encountered an growing balance of payments problem as prime minister. As the economy expanded, imports and debt commitments have risen in recent years , in particular because of the CPEC (Initiatives for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor). Just weeks before he took office as Premier, the crisis worsened when the US refused $300 million in military assistance, saying Pakistan had not done anything to combat terrorism.
Khan initially tried to seek foreign aid from “friendly states.” Due to his failure to resolve Pakistan ‘s macroeconomic problems with a dozen previous International Monetary Fund packages (IMF), his avoidance of an IMF rescue reflected the popular weariness with the IMF. Nevertheless, Pakistan sent an IMF plea for emergency loans despite refusing to secure financial assistance on reasonable terms from other nations. He continued to receive foreign help from sources other than China, Saudi Arabia , and the United Arab Emirates and then made investments.
Khan has tracked many important trends in international affairs with Pakistan in addition to courting foreign funding. The government succeeded in getting the Taliban into US negotiations and improving its relations with the country and neighbouring Afghanistan. In February 2019 , India conducted the air strike in Pakistan for the first time in five decades in a display of power against rebels of Kashmir who have lately carried out a suicide attack that kills 40.
The effect has been played down by Pakistan and the situation has not worsened. When India returned to the air space of Pakistan, Pakistan launched two combat jets and caught a pilot. After the incident, Khan undertook a repression of militants, issued arrests, closed many religious schools and promises to update existing law in accordance with international standards.
The 24th day of its establishment was observed throughout the world on Saturday Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
Established by incumbent Premier Imran Khan in Lahore on 25 April 1996, the Party aims to establish the Matinees-like welfare state, which would give the masses all basic living amenities, including schooling, healthcare, and jobs.
We must guarantee the rule of law in order to achieve Quaid-e-Azam’s vision: PM
Premier Imran Khan said, 24 years ago, that his party set about carrying out Quaid-e-Azam ‘s vision of Pakistan as a modern Islamic welfare state, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
To achieve the vision of Quaid-e-Azam, he said, we need to guarantee the rule of law, where all citizens before the law are equal and the powerful are subject to the law.
The Prime Minister stated that his party ‘s second mission is to crack down the hegemony of the wealthy of the State and the riches of the country and to allow a more equal allocation of the resources such that the weak are removed from misery.
The Prime Minister claimed his group was more prepared than any other political party for a long and arduous campaign.
I would also like to recall the founding members of PTI, including Naeemul Haq, Ahsan Rasheed and Saloni Bokhari, who are not with us any more today.
On 25 April 1996 Imran Khan founded Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in Lahore. Tehreek-e-Insaf was initially established, in June 1996, as a socio-political party, under Imran Khan and Naeemul Haque, Ahsan Rasheed, Hafeez Khan, Mowahid Hussain, Mahmud Awan and Nausherwan Burki as founding Members of Pakistan’s first Central Executive Committee. PTI gradually started to rise but wasn’t prominent immediately.
In October 2002, Khan ran for the National Election, and in his home city, Mianwali became an MP. But Khan was strongly criticised for Pakistan as a whole, which he perceived to be oppressive, wasteful and spiritual deprived of any fundamental values of Pakistan. In outrage, Khan has initiated a campaign to lift his party’s consciousness.
Since Benazir Bhutto ‘s assassination in 2007 and Nawaz Sharif ‘s return from Saudi Arabia, the strain on President Musharraf has intensified to hold democratic elections. PTI, along with other parties opposed to more military control, supported the All Parties Democracy Movement. In the general election of 2008, the PPP claimed. The competition has been boycotted by PTI. The recruiting drive for 150,000 members in November and December 2008 quits the group.

According to a press conference on the candidacy and ticketing procedure for the US nominee PTI revealed in March 2012, it is preparing to organize US-style in-party elections. The goal of PTI is to carry local caucuses to district level across the world. The nominee will vote in debates and have elections to gain a party seat to challenge sitting at regional or national meetings.
The polling started in October 2012 and ended on March 23, 2013, when a lengthy voting period of more than four million eligible voters culminated in the final dissolution of the National Council and its electoral college. PTI was Pakistan’s first political entity to participate at the biggest elections intra-party in the general election foundation.
The polls were conducted from October 2012 and concluded on March 23, 2013, when, following the long election cycle of over four million registered voters, the party formally elected the National Council for its electoral college. PTI became the first political organization in Pakistan to vote in the largest polls inside the opposition party in the general electoral base.
Pakistan has had an impact and the condition has not deteriorated. Pakistan launched two combat jets and picked up a pilot when India returned to Pakistan’s airspace. After the incident, Khan repressed militants, held many religious schools, and undertook promises in conformity with international standards to update existing legislation.
