Uproar since the arrest of former Pakistan PM Imran Khan
Imran Khan got involved in controversies many times even during his cricket career.
New Delhi. Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has been arrested. Imran, the president of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf party, was arrested when he reached the Islamabad High Court to appear in the Al-Qadir Trust case. That’s why Pak Rangers took him under arrest from the court premises itself. Ever since the arrest of Imran, there has been a ruckus all over Pakistan. His supporters have created arson and vandalism in different cities. Even the army headquarters in Rawalpindi has been attacked. After this, Pakistan’s Army Chief General Asim Munir has called an emergency meeting. Section 144 has been implemented in the entire country due to the uproar by the supporters of Imran Khan.
Imran Khan has always been associated with controversies. Then whether it is about his cricket career or politics. At the moment, the matter is political. But, we will talk about that Imran, under whose captaincy Pakistan became the world champion. Perhaps this dream of Pakistan is not fulfilled. If Imran Khan does not change his decision of retirement. In 1987, the World Cup was held in India. Pakistan was eliminated after losing in the semi-finals. After this Imran Khan had decided to retire from cricket. But, the then President of Pakistan Zia-ul-Haq asked him to go back to cricket. Imran also accepted the request of the President and withdrew his decision to retire.
After this, under the captaincy of Imran Khan, in 1992, Pakistan created history and won the World Cup for the first time. After this, it has been 31 years and Pakistan’s team has not won the World Cup. This same General Zia had asked Imran Khan to join politics later. But, then Imran refused. But, today Imran is at the center of the upheaval going on in Pakistan.
Imran Khan sometimes came into controversies because of his playboy image apart from drugs, sometimes ball tempering. Today we tell you some big controversies related to him.
When Imran was accused of taking drugs
In 1987, the Pakistan team came on a tour of India under the captaincy of Imran Khan and won the ODI as well as the Test series. In the same year, team player Qasim Umar accused Imran of taking drugs. He had even said that he himself provides drugs to them. After the allegations, the investigation also started. But, later the investigation was closed.
agreed to ball tempering
It would be wrong to say that Imran Khan’s name came in controversies only after his retirement from cricket. In 1994, he admitted that he used to tamper with the ball during the match. He did the same in county cricket. The pair of Imran Khan and Javed Miandad was a hit on the field. There was amazing chemistry between the two. However, after the 1992 World Cup, the same Miandad openly termed Imran Khan as bad-tempered.
