Imran Khan—the Prime Minister of Pakistan has been named as the ‘Man of the Year’ by the Jordan’s Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center.
Abdullah Schleifer—a professor of the Jordanian research institute said that if he were the Chief Editor of the institute in 1992, he would have nominated Imran Khan as the “Muslim Man of the Year” because of his brilliant performance in the world of cricket.
The professor, however, said that the cricket wasn’t the only reason behind naming Prime Minister Imran Khan ‘Man of the Year’, it was rather his desire for the peace with the neighbouring country India which earned him the title.
He further said that he also impressed with Imran Khan launching a successful fund-raising campaign to establish a world-class cancer hospital in Pakistan.
On the other hand, Palestinian-American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was named as the ‘Woman of the Year’ by the centre, which is an autonomous research entity with the Royal Aal Al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought in Jordan.
