Imran ‘Taliban’ Khan has been running helter-skelter to try and save face in front of the people who inhabit the failed Islamic Republic of Pakistan. After being snubbed by the UN and every other country that deemed the abrogation of Article 370 by India as an internal matter, Imran Khan has now decided to seek attention by nominating himself as aa ambassador of Kashmir.
Earlier, speaking to students in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Imran Khan said, “I have nominated myself as the Ambassador of Kashmir and will fight the case for freedom of Kashmir till the very end”.

It is this statement that captured the imagination of India. On social media, Imran Khan’s statement of nominating himself as the ambassador of Kashmir inspired a flurry of jokes and memes.
Taking inspiration from Imran Khan, Indians on Twitter proceeded to nominate themselves to various positions that nobody had offered to them.
Some proceeded to nominate themselves as Jedi Grandmaster Yoda and Captain America.

Others nominated Amit Shah as the ambassador of Pakistan. Unlike some other responses, considering the condition of Pakistan, this one was much closer to the realm of possibilities.

Continuing the saga of the impossible, one Netizen proceeded to nominate Salman Khan as the Brand Ambassador for the safety of endangered species and road safety.

Another Netizen thought Imran Khan’s statement was ‘no big deal’ considering P Chidambaram too, who is now in the custody of CBI had ‘nominated himself as the ambassador of Tihar jail’.
So what? Chidambaram also nominated himself as the ambassador of Tihar…
Big deal! https://t.co/T2CEzKDiFz

As if Imran Khan was not done making a fool of himself, on Monday, Imran Khan decided to talk to the people of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in a special address in order to inform the parody nation what he planned to do after India had abrogated Article 370.
“Pakistan’s Kashmir policy is at a decisive point. So I have decided to take the nation into confidence over the Kashmir issue. My dear Pakistanis, today I only want to talk on Kashmir; what the issue is, what we have done so far and what is the way forward,” he said.
He further said that Pakistan had managed to internationalise the Kashmir issue and Imran Khan has spoken to world leaders. “UN for the first time since 1965, convened a meeting on Kashmir issue. Even international media has picked it up”, he said.
Of course, what he did not tell his nation is that even at the United Nations, Pakistan was snubbed and thereafter, member nations have sided with India.
He further stated that India’s decision to abrogate article 370 was not only against UN decisions but also against the Indian Constitution and the promises made by Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi. “We tried engaging India to a dialogue several times. But India was also going through the election phase so we waited for that to end. Just then Pulwama happened and they instantly pointed fingers towards Pakistan,” said Khan.
