FROM SPORTSMAN TO STATESMAN

| | | Share |

What a new record has been set up by Imran Khan, Prime Minister of Pakistan, by being elected! It is for the first time in the history of Asian politics that any sportsman has reached the level of a Prime Minister. Congratulations to him!

The foremost lesson that a sportsperson imbibes during his / her tenure on the playing field is team spirit. It is only this quality that ensures that the sportsperson attains the highest level in the chosen field and earns name and fame. I believe that Imran Khan had learnt this in the initial stage of being a cricketer and only his team spirit made him an icon of cricket in the world.

Now that he is the Prime Minister of Pakistan he has a much bigger field to play. But the sole question is that will he be able to maintain that same spirit as the Prime Minister? The situation under which he has been elected as the supreme leader in Pakistan assembly is already quite dicey due to the interference of the Pakistan Army.

A real sportsman always honours the opposite team and its members in the spirit of fair play. The situation in Pakistan is well known to the world and I doubt if he will be able to maintain the same team spirit as the PM within the country and outside and especially with India.

It is a big challenge for this sportsman to play fair with India due to the pressure of three factors: Pakistan Army, the Inter-Services Intelligence and Islamic terrorist outfits in Pakistan. I think if he is able to maintain his spirit to manage these factors of concern to India, only then every cricket lover will salute him. But if he is unable to do so then it will be a very tough time for Pakistan, its society and moreover, its economy which is already dwindling.

India and Pakistan have been cricket lovers and will always be so but at the same time are big time rivals in the geopolitical arena. We still have big hopes from the cricket icon to play fair with India in all respects in his new role.

This edition has been focussed on the outcome of Pakistan’s recent elections and the way forward which will enable you to understand its impact on India’s national security. I hope you will find many interesting and informative facts in this edition.

Happy reading!
