    I was a great fan of Imran Khan in his cricketing days. He was what is called an all rounder in the sport. The rare individual who is both a great batsman and a good bowler plus he was a great captain of Pakistan’s national team. I first noticed his negative attitude to the US after 9/11. I have been aware of his political career but wasn’t aware he had become an apologist for the Taliban. I had hoped that his leadership qualities might one day bring Pakistan out of its doldrums because I have heard him say that the corrupt elite that runs Pakistan has to take more social responsibility if Pakistan is ever going to do well. That’s fine but when a politician finds himself sympathizing with what PM Sharif correctly named as people with no religion – then he revealed himself as something more than a populist.
