سیاسی زندگی

25 اپریل، 1996ء کو تحریک انصاف قائم کرکے سیاسی میدان میں قدم رکھا۔ ابتدائی طور پر انھیں کامیابی نہ مل سکی۔ لیکن حالیہ دنوں میں وہ اپنی جدوجہد اور اصول پرستی کی بدولت پاکستانی عوام، خصوصا نوجوانوں میں تیزی سے مقبولیت حاصل کر رہے ہیں۔ اس وقت انہیں پاکستان کی قومی اسمبلی میں ایک سیٹ (0.8%) حاصل ہے جبکہ ان کی جماعت کو ایک سیٹ سرحد صوبائی اسمبلی میں بھی میسر ہے۔


فوجی تاخت 2007ء

3 نومبر 2007ء کو فوجی آمر پرویز مشرف کے "ہنگامی حالت" کے اعلان کے بعد آپ کو نظربند کرنے کی کوشش کی گئی، تاہم وہ پولیس کو جُل دے کر "فرار" ہونے میں کامیاب ہو گئے۔ 14 نومبر کو پولیس نے انھیں گرفتار کر لیا۔ انتظامیہ کے مطابق ان پر "دہشت گردی" قانون کے تحت مقدمہ بنایا جائے گا۔ عمران نے کہا ہے کہ ان کی زندگی اور کراچی میں تحریک انصاف کے کارکنوں کی زندگی کو خطرہ لاحق ہے کیونکہ برطانوی حکومت نے متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کے لندن میں مقیم سربراہ الطاف حسین کے خلاف کوئی قدم نہیں اُٹھایا جس سے یہ لوگ شیر ہو کر تشدد کی کاروائی کر سکتے ہیں۔ دنیا بھر کی اخبارات نے عمران کی فوجی آمر پرویز مشرف کے خلاف جدوجہد کو سراہا ہے۔ 18 نومبر کو عمران خان نے ڈیرہ غازی خان جیل میں بھوک ہڑتال شروع کی۔ 22 نومبر کو اچانک رہا کر دیا گیا۔



عمران خان کی جدو جہد پر 2013 میں ایک فلم ریلیز ہونے والی ہے جس کا نام ہے کپتان جس میں عمران خان کے 1992 سے لے کر 2013 تک کے عوامی تبدیلی تک کے ادوار کو دکھایا جائے گا ۔ واضح رہے کہ مذکورہ فلم کی سرمایہ کاری و پیش کاری کا عمران خان اور اس کی تنظیم سے کوئی تعلق نہیں اور یہ ایک قطعی غیر وابستہ منصوبہ ہے جو کہ فلم اور میڈيا سے تعلق رکھنے والوں کی طرف سے بنائی گئی ہے ۔







Imran Khan HI PP ASA FRCPE (Hon) (Urdu: عمران خان ‎) born Imran Khan Niazi (Urdu: عمران خان نیازی‎) on 25 November 1952, is a senior Pakistani politician, statesman, celebrity and former cricketer. He played international cricket for two decades in the late twentieth century and, after retiring, entered politics. Besides his political activism, Khan is also a prominent philanthropist, cricket commentator, Chancellor of the University of Bradford and Founding Chairman of Board of Governors of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre. Through worldwide fundraising, he founded the Mianwali's Namal College in 2008.He is the only leader from any Asian or African country, outside the government, who has addressed the World Economic Forum held at Davos. According to Asia Society, Imran was voted as Asia’s Person of the Year 2012 scoring more than 88 per cent of the total vote casted. While according to the Pew Research Center in 2012 seven out of ten Pakistani respondents offered a favourable opinion about Khan, the survey also revealed that Khan enjoys incomparable popularity among the youth.


He was Pakistan's most successful cricket captain, leading his country to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup, playing for the Pakistani cricket team from 1971 to 1992, and serving as its captain intermittently throughout 1982–1992. After retiring from cricket at the end of the 1987 World Cup in 1988, due to popular public demand he was requested to come back by the president of Pakistan to lead the team once again. At 39, Khan led his team to Pakistan's first and only World Cup victory in 1992. He has a record of 3807 runs and 362 wickets in Test cricket, making him one of eight world cricketers to have achieved an 'All-rounder's Triple' in Test matches. On 14 July 2010, Khan was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.


In April 1996, Khan founded and became the chairman of a political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice). He represented Mianwali as a member of the National Assembly from November 2002 to October 2007. Foreign Policy magazine described him as "Pakistan's Ron Paul". Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf focuses on justice for the common through an independent judiciary, accountability of the elite and promotion of democracy. His penchant to eradicate corruption from the country remained the utmost priority on his political mandate. Recently, PTI has gained popularity amongst the youth of the nation. Students and young professionals belonging to all domains flock behind Imran Khan. His rallies against corruption and misdemeanours of various important political figures have brought about this revolutionary change. He also claims that international aid remains a threat to Pakistan’s sovereignty. According to Khan, aid only feeds the government and is of little help to the needy citizens. Policies and reforms are what the country needs immediately.


On 30 October 2011, Khan changed the political picture of the country by addressing more than 100,000 supporters in Lahore, challenging the policies of the current government, calling this new change a "tsunami" against the ruling parties, followed by another successful public gathering of 250,000 supporters in Karachi on 25 December 2011. Since then Imran Khan has become a real threat for the current ruling parties and future political prospect in Pakistan. According to International Republican Institute (IRI)'s survey, Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) tops the list of popular parties in Pakistan both at the national as well as provincial level, leaving Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) behind. On 30 June 2012, It is because of the principled stance of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on the critical issues faced by the country that a survey conducted by an international research organisation has found him the most popular leader of the country, the party said in a statement on Friday. According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre under its Global Attitudes project, the PTI chief has 70 percent approval ratings, moving up the list by 18 percentage points over the past two years. In 2010, his ratings stood at 52 percent.


On 6 October 2012, Khan led a vehicle caravan of protesters from Islamabad to the village of Kotai in Pakistan's South Waziristan region. The purpose of this demonstration was to protest U.S. drone missile strikes against Islamic militants in Pakistan's tribal regions. Khan was joined by a number of Americans, including members of Code Pink, a U.S. based anti-drone activist group. Some observers suggested that part of Khan's motivation for the public rally was to build support for his PTI party ahead of national elections in 2013. Khan is quoted as saying that as Prime Minister he would refuse foreign aid in order to "take away the narrative of the Jihad".


On 23rd March 2013, Khan passed the "Naya Pakistan Resolution" (New Pakistan) at the start of his election campaign while addressing a large rally at Iqbal Park. He made six promises to the Pakistani People if he comes to power which includes that he will never lie to the nation, he and his government will wage a 'Jihad' against injustice in the country, he will keep all his wealth in Pakistan, he will not take or allow others to take unfair benifit during PTI’s tenure in the government, he will guard the nation's tax. It will not be spent on Governor, PM and CM houses, the PTI government will break the walls of the Governor houses and will stand by overseas Pakistanis.
