Imran Khan gave his UN speech yesterday and it was pretty amazing. If you have the time, watch it, especially the second half. It hasn't had much airtime but I feel he's being very genuine and appealing for attention against an Indian nation that is not interested in maintaining peace. It echo's Qaddafi where he explained the Arab nations were in danger.

He got very candid in explaining the situation with Pakistan, the downing of the fighter jets incident earlier this year and how he tried to work India to work out defusing the conflict but India kept on lying.

Most notable - he explains how India's PM Modi is a member of a group that is akin to Hitler's brand of Aryan-ism and specifically suggests that Modi's trying to implement the 'perfect race'

have to explain to you what is RSS, Mr Modi is a life member of RSS. It is a organisation that was inspired by Adolf Hitler and Mussolini, it came about in 1925. They believed in racial purity, racial superiority and they believed they were an Aryan race like the nazi..''

Then, on his return to Pakistan today, his Saudi leased plane suffered a malfunction, he was forced to land at JFK and will be spending another night in NY. Khan says he will fly on a commercial airline if its not sorted quickly.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has reportedly failed to return to his home country after the plane carrying him and his delegation malfunctioned hours into the return trip from the US, and was forced to land in New York. The crew discovered a technical problem on board the jet, four hours after it left New York for Pakistan on Friday night.

An attempt to take him out?
Or a delay in him getting home?

Saudi leased jets malfunctioning while flying a world leader who is speaking out against India and thus the US... Khan, baby.. pick your friends better

a reply to: Agit8dChop all means...let’s just take the word of an single side of dispute...and conflate it as if it truly played the role of legitimacy...

Besides...blame for that situation resides squarely in the lap of that defunct empire from that quaint little isle over by France...

one has to wonder :

The crew discovered a technical problem on board the jet, four hours after it left New York for Pakistan

why return to NY ???

one would EXPECT an aircraft of the spec in question to have traveled upto 1500 miles in 4 hours [ minimum ]

so why did it ignore all the closer airports - it could have bailed too ????????

not saying that there was no problem - or that the flight should have continued

but how much of an emergency was it ??????????????

Isn't Khan the same moron that also said in his speech that there was no such thing as radical islam?
I think we can take what he says with a mountain of salt as he appears to have no grasp of reality.

I don't see the word "emergency" used. It has a pretty specific meaning in aviation.

An instrument malfunction could be cause to return to New York but not be an emergency.

The Indo-Pakistan relationship has been poor. Succinctly, Hindu and Muslims don't get on with each other. This started well before Partition, and in fact goes back to the Islamic invasion of India.

Part of the problem is Pakistan's tolerance of terrorism.

As to a technical problem on a plane. Bit of a long shot here trying to suggest to was an assassination attempt. Khan has enough domestic enemies to remove India from the frame and as history has shown Pakistan's problems frequently pull out assassinations against politicians, many successful.
