Imran Kahn

I am amazed that the cricketing world has been so silent about the abysmal treatment of Imran Kahn. In his time, he was one of the most-skilled cricketers in the world. After retiring from cricket, he entered politics in Pakistan. He was Prime Minister from 2018 to 2022. His main problem was that he took on the corrupt families that have controlled the political scene in Pakistan for many years.

After he was pushed out of office, Imran Kahn was arrested on trumped charges of corruption and espionage. He has been in prison since, unable to run for office. Jeffrey Sachs tells the shameful story of American involvement in his removal from office and shut out of the latest elections in an article called US Toppling of Imran Kahn.
