So when it came to take the stand at the general Security Council meeting of the UN the Prime Minister of Pakistan, did not let his nation down. On top of that he also became a beacon of light for all of the oppressed Muslim community currently residing in the world, at that moment, at that very moment Imran Khan did not just represent Pakistan, but on top of that he represented the Muslim community of the world, which is truly remarkable and something which makes us proud as a Pakistani citizen. That speech went down in history as one of the most powerful speeches any leader has given on the stage and well that has significantly improved the PM’s popularity in the world.
The Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan’s following has increased a lot ever since his party came into power in 2018. Six months ago, the premier was ranked at 9th place in the list of most followed world leaders with 9.4 million followers on Twitter page which given his ranks is an amazing achievement. However, his popularity only saw a rise after his amazing speech at the UN meeting which happened last month.
PM Khan’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly in September, which highlighted the key issues such as the Kashmir issue, Islamophobia, climate change, and blasphemy, made sure that he was being viewed as a leader of not just Pakistan, but the entire Muslim ummah.
His following has shot up rapidly after the speech and according to the latest statistics, Khan is the 6th most followed leader in the world.
