 Pakistan has been labelled as one of the most controversial countries in the world. A country tainted with military dictatorships, tormented by religious extremists and fleeced by years of corrupt democratic rule. It is a place where an endemic culture of nepotism blooms with impunity. The biggest casualty of this political and social homicide are the ordinary citizens who are left to struggle with appalling economic conditions and a system sorely in need of repair. In a climate as unsettling as that, one noise exploded onto the scene with an unyielding aggression. Imran Khan, former cricket celebrity, philanthropist and turned politician, seems to have changed the decorum of Pakistan’s botched-up political landscape.


An irreverent iconoclast, Khan established his Movement for Justice party back in 1996 and has doggedly moved up the ranks. Brazenly accusing his opponents with unprecedented levels of corruption, Imran’s party has gone from being a novice presence to one of the most defiant voices in the parliament’s opposition benches. Let There Be Justice: The Political Journey of Imran Khan is an intriguing story of Imran Khan’s populist politics, his verve and unfettered commitment which may eventually swing him into power at the next general elections in 2018.

It's a fabulous journey of Imran Khan marshalling his troops in the field of cricket to the entry into politics with commitments and urge to do better for those who never had. The author has been able to connect various issues facing the country quite methodically. It makes a lot of sense to read his eventful journey so lucidly expressed by the author. The use of language has been remarkable.
