Pakistan PM Imran Khan goofs up again, attributes Rabindranath Tagore’s quote to Kahlil Gibran

Imran Khan’s image has taken a beating in recent times with several goof ups and diplomatic embarrassments.

Prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan continues to embarrass himself by goof-ups. After saying that Japan and Germany share a common boundary, Khan was caught attributing a quote by Rabindranath Tagore to Kahlil Gibran, a Lebanese-American writer, poet and artist. Gibran was contemporary with Tagore.

Imran Khan posted a tweet today, 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.”

Immediately after he tweeted this, many people replied informing him that he is attributing a Tagore quote to Gibran. They are right to point out that Imran Khan goofed up again, as the quote was indeed said by Tagore. Although the quote posted by Imran Khan slightly varies from the actual quote of Tagore, there is no doubt that it was said by Tagore and not Gibran. The actual quote is, “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

The Pakistani PM was severely criticised on Twitter after he posted the tweet. Imran Khan’s image has taken a beating in recent times with several goof ups and diplomatic embarrassments. He was seen breaching diplomatic protocol at the recently concluded SCO summit, and was seen insulting the Saudi king.
