After Imran Khan confuses quote by Rabindranath Tagore for Gibran’s, his special assistant thinks Tendulkar is Imran Khan

Haque seems to be following his Prime Minister's footsteps. 

Pakistan has often been a constant source of entertainment for the world when it’s not exporting terror. Today, the Special Assistant to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter to praise his Wazir-e-Azam. Only, he was not praising Imran Khan.

Naeem Ul-Haque, the special assistant to Imran Khan posted a picture of a young cricketer holding his bat up after presumably playing a good inning. Haque captioned that photograph with “PM Imran Khan 1969”.

The only catch? That picture was not of Imran Khan at all. The picture that the special assistant shared was that of Sachin Tendulkar, legendary Indian cricketer.

Sachin Tendulkar made his first-class debut in 1988 against Gujarat, aged 15 years and 232 days, becoming the youngest cricketer to score a century on his first-class debut. Mumbai declared their innings 394 for 6 as soon as Tendulkar reached his hundred, He played a square-cut off a left-arm spinner to reach the hundred.

Thus, this photograph of Sachin Tendulkar, that Naeem Ul-Haque plugged as a photo of Imran Khan, is from 1988.

This is not the first time that someone from Pakistan has made such an outlandish mistake. In fact, Haque seems to be following his Prime Minister’s footsteps.

Imran Khan had earlier posted a tweet, attaching an image that contained an inspirational quote. It says, “I slept and dreamt that life is all joy. I woke and saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” The quote was followed by the words Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), implying that he wrote it.

Along with the image, Imran Khan tweeted, “Those who discover and get to understand the wisdom of Gibran’s words, cited below, get to live a life of contentment.” The quote, however, was one by Rabindranath Tagore.

Till this report was published, Naeem Ul-Haque had not deleted his tweet or tweeted a clarification in this regard.
