Writing Works

Imran Khan has published six works of factual and instructive literature and a life tale co-authored with Patrick Murphy. He regularly writes cricket and Pakistani politics commentary and articles for several prominent Pakistani and British newspapers.


Khan faced a growing balance-of-payments crisis as Prime Minister. Despite the fact that the economy was growing, imports and debt commitments have risen in recent years. Owing in part to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) plan. The crisis intensified just weeks after he took office when the US withheld $300 million in pledged military help. Claiming Pakistan had not done enough to combat terrorism. Because a dozen prior IMF bailout packages had failed to alleviate Pakistan\’s macroeconomic issues. Khan attempted to seek foreign aid from \”friendly countries\” first; his avoidance of an IMF bailout reflected widespread fatigue with the IMF. Pakistan requested emergency loans from the IMF after failing to secure foreign aid on favourable terms from other countries. He continued to seek international assistance from other sources, eventually receiving investment guarantees from China, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Khan oversaw several key improvements in Pakistan\’s diplomatic relations, in addition to pursuing foreign aid. The country was successful in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table with the US, which improved relations between the two countries. India launched an airstrike on Pakistan for the first time in five decades in February 2019, in a show of force against militants in Kashmir who had recently staged a suicide bombing that killed 40 Indian security officers, stoking worries of a new conflict between the two countries. Pakistan appeared to downplay the impact and avoid aggravating the issue. When India cross Pakistani airspace again, Pakistan fired down two fighter jets and kidnapped a pilot. However,  But the pilot was quickly restored to India. Khan responded by arresting militants, closing a huge number of religious schools. And promising to reform existing regulations to match international norms in the aftermath of the disaster.

The COVID-19 epidemic, which started in early 2020, worsened the country\’s economic problems. In comparison to his critics, Khan was hesitant to support a lockdown. In March, the provincial government in Sindh, which is governed by an opposition party, imposed a stringent lockdown. April, Khan declared a statewide lockdown; in May, his government began limiting lockdowns to areas with high infection rates.

Meanwhile, Khan faced criticism for his tight ties to the military establishment, his crackdown on terrorists, and the country\’s precarious economic situation. However, The People\’s Democratic Movement (PDM), a coalition of main opposition groups. Was create in late 2020 with the declared purpose of boosting civilian government independence from the military establishment. PDM-organized protests and demonstrations accused Khan of being a puppet of the army and demanded that he resign.

These parties boycotted a vote of confidence called by Khan\’s government in March 2021. which he narrowly won with the help of his coalition allies. Khan broke out with the military establishment later that year after a failed attempt to influence high military positions. As anger over high inflation grew, the opposition called for a vote of confidence in March 2022; major PTI partners resigned from the government coalition, and numerous members of the party defected. However, The vote was held, and on April 10, Khan became Pakistan\’s first prime minister to be depose by a no-confidence motion.
