I'll respectfully disagree. Mr Khan is a
leader of elite of religious inclination. He has
no connection with the poor of Pakistan
He is known only in the urban Pakistan and
he never made any attempt to connect with
the rural masses, the people who are really
at the suffering end and make bulk of the
voters.
He never worked with labour unions and
" kissaan boards" infact he wasn't even aware
of these entities. He thrives only on the TV.
He has to know that TV channels can't get him
votes if he isn't known among the rural laboureres and peasants.
He like many others tried to use religion as a political
stent but failed. He always hung out with parties with extremist
views such as Jamat e islami etc. He never even once
publically condemned the Talaybaan. This makes me wonder if he
is one of those with extremist views in the garb of modernity.
This out look failed to appeal the Pakistani mind as we have
categorically rejected the fundamentalist fanatics.
Therefore , it wouldn't be a good idea to be impressed by
mr khan's rhetorics.
