Following a trial court’s conviction on charges of illegally selling state gifts, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, was apprehended by the police in Lahore. The court sentenced him to three years in prison for misusing his position as prime minister during the period from 2018 to 2022. This misuse involved trading state-owned gifts acquired during foreign visits, amounting to over 140 million Pakistani rupees ($635,000).
According to Pakistani media, Judge Humayun Dilawar declared Khan’s involvement in corrupt practices as proven. Along with the prison term, the verdict also imposed a fine of 100,000 rupees ($355), which, if unpaid, could lead to an additional six months of incarceration.

Prior to his arrest, Khan recorded a video message and shared it on the social media platform X (previously known as Twitter), urging his supporters to protest on the streets. In the video, he emphasized that his struggle was not just for himself but for the betterment of the nation and its future generations. He called upon his followers to stand up for their rights and warned against remaining passive, as it would lead to a life of servitude.
The news of Khan’s arrest has drawn strong reactions from many Pakistani celebrities, with Azeka Daniel expressing her outrage, stating, “What a sad news for Pakistan today, Khan Sahab arrested again. Rest in Peace democracy, law & order.”

Armeena Rana Khan sent her prayers to the former Prime Minister saying, “Khan sahib stay strong, this too shall pass. All decent humans will pray for you today.”

Ducky Bhai, a well-known YouTuber, shared an intriguing viewpoint. “Through my extensive travels, I have come to the realization that Pakistan is, without a doubt, the best country,” he stated openly. However, it is hampered by the presence of inept politicians and a lack of long-term planning.”
