Pakistan PM Imran Khan continues to make errors and netizens have been brutal to troll the PM. Imran Khan is now facing the heat and loads of criticism for sharing a quote of Rabindranath Tagore thinking it belonged to author Kahlil Jibran.
PM Imran spoke out via Twitter to nearly 10 million followers with a quote saying: “I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that life is all joy.”
He then wrote that those who understand Jibran’s words are able to live a life of contentment. Twitter users were quick to pounce on his mistake with Khan coming under heavy criticism with some claiming PM Imran should first employ fact checking before sharing posts.

When asked to comment on the faux pas, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz remarked that the mistake is a manifestation of the Khan’s incompetence. “To copy something you even need some form of intelligence,” she added.
This is the latest in a spate of faux pas for PM Khan as on April 23 he misspoke by mixing up France with Japan while giving an example of how the country set up joint industries in the border region to bolster economic ties with Germany.
“The more trade you have with each other your ties automatically become stronger… Germany and Japan killed millions of their civilians until after the Second World War when they both decided to have joint industries on their border regions,” he said while speaking at an event in Tehran.
Even in December last year, he referred to Africa as an “emerging country” in a speech during the Envoys Conference on Economic Diplomacy.
