A rare photo of Prime Minister Imran Khan with sons went viral on social media on Wednesday. The image shows PM Imran Khan standing with his two sons, Qasim and Suleman, in Pakistan’s northern tourist spot, Skardu.
The old image of Khan with his sons caught the attention of internet users. The fans and followers of Imran Khan outpoured love and warmth on the heartwarming image. The image gained extraordinary traction on social media also because the premier is hardly seen spending quality time with his sons.
PM Khan has two sons with his first wife, Jemima Goldsmith who he married in 1995. Goldsmith returned to England with her sons following their divorce in 2004. Back in 2018, his sons have returned to Pakistan for a four-day trip to meet him. It was their first trip since he became the prime minister of Pakistan.
His sons, however, had traveled to Pakistan last year to attend the family wedding. The boys had reached Pakistan to attend the wedding of their cousin, Amna, daughter of Uzma Khanum. PM Khan, due to international engagement, could not meet his sons and did not even attend the wedding.

At the time of the wedding, PM Khan had flown to Iran for an official visit. The pictures of the wedding showed the boys dressed up in traditional Kurta shalwar suits while mingling up with close friends and relatives.
Khan loves his sons so much so that he has even dedicated his book-‘Pakistan, A Personal History’- to his sons. His sons wanted to attend his oath-taking ceremony, however, Khan strictly refused them to come to Pakistan for the ceremony.
In his recent interview on Thursday, Khan stated that his children live in London but he has not traveled to London to meet them since he has become the prime minister of Pakistan.
