PM Khan at UNGA: Top Global Trend on social media

After surpassing PM Modi in the popularity stats even before maiden UNGA speech, PM Khan continued to be a global social media phenomenon.

Yesterday premier Imran Khan shook Pakistan and the world with his maiden UN speech, shedding light on the rise of Islamophobia, money laundering, the climate change and Kashmir cause-all of which is affecting Pakistan adversely.

#ImranKhanVoiceofKashmir was a worldwide top trend and Google revealed that Imran Khan was the second most searched for leader on the search engine ahead of Narendra Modi.

Mesmerized with his speech, the social media felicitated Prime Minister Khan and his delegation including Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Pakistan’s permanent ambassador to UN Maleeha Lodhi for leading a vigorous campaign for Pakistan at the international forum.

From celebrities to politicians and even Indians had something to say on PM Khan’s assertions at UN.


A score of celebrities including Faysal Qureshi, Mehwish Hayat, Mahira Khan, Fakhr-e-Alam, Farhan Saeed, and Samina Pirzada hailed PM Khan for presenting Pakistan’s image of a modern and a peace-loving country, a clear shift from the perception of a country breeding terrorist, globally. Cricketers including Shahid Afridi, Waseem Akram, Muhammad Hafeez, and Ramiz Raja also cheered PM Khan.

Meanwhile, DG ISPR’s hilarious message on Imran Khan’s UNGA speech grabbed immense attention on social media. He tweeted 27th Feb and 27th September, reminding India two imperative dates, when they faced humiliation at the hands of Pakistan- 27th February marks the date when Pakistani shot down its two fighter jets upon violating the airspace of Pakistan. Exactly, seven months after the aerial dogfight Pakistan again castigated India on 27th September at the world’s prestigious platform United Nations.

Politicians and political commentators

Pakistani politicians, commentators, and anchorpersons were amazed by PM Khan’s substantial speech, which forced even his staunch critics to laud him.

The criticism pouring in from his critics was reduced to the assertion of alleging PM Khan for not presenting a strong case of Kashmir at the UN. Including Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the chairperson PPP expressed displeasure over ‘not saying enough’ at the UNGA. Others believed that his assertions of Islamophobia and money laundering were unnecessary.

Former Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, however, remained silent on PM Khan’s UNGA speech. Khurram Dastagir, a senior politician of PML-N, however, mocked PM Khan over the empty seats in the UNGA during PM Khan’s speech.
