Former Pakistani wicket-keeper Zulqarnain Haider has made a foray into politics following a prediction from his spiritual leader about the rise of his favored leader as the country’s next Prime Minister. News sources reveal that Haider has joined the ranks of the Pakistan People’s Party, with his admiration firmly placed on Bilawal Bhutto, whom he considers the most capable leader among the current politicians. Haider’s endorsement of Bilawal Bhutto stems from a belief in the young politician’s potential to steer the nation towards prosperity and happiness.
Interestingly, Zulqarnain Haider’s spiritual mentor, Shah Shams Tabriz, has also predicted that Bilawal Bhutto will ascend to the position of Prime Minister in Pakistan. It is a noteworthy turn of events for Haider, who in the past had made headlines with allegations against prominent figures. He accused former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani of being involved in match-fixing during his time in power, specifically during Pakistan’s semi-final match against India in the 2011 World Cup.
Zulqarnain Haider’s cricketing career had its own share of controversies, most notably his abrupt departure from the national team during the South Africa series in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) back in 2010. This incident created significant turmoil at the time. Despite returning to domestic cricket, Haider faced challenges in reclaiming a spot in the national setup, marking a turbulent journey from the cricket field to the realm of politics.
