Like Imran Khan from a player to a politician, Amir Khan also expressed his desire to join Pakistan politics with full dedication only to decline his own offer himself a few days later.
By taking to Facebook, the British professional boxer of Pakistani origin without mentioning names talked about the offer given by someone multiple times during the course of his career. He wrote, “I have been asked numerous times if I would join politics in Pakistan. Being a sports man and being an ambassador for the country, I’m honoured to asked if I would take part in politics, in fact I would love to help the country.”
He added, “I would love to make pakistan a better place and be a massive help in many areas. Being sport, education, stopping child labouring and many more things. We will all leave this world one day, but whilst we still around we all should do our bit.”
Amir Khan went on to write on his facebook post about politics, “Ive sat with many politicians and army generals agreeing and disagreeing on topics in the country. My heart is clean and I would want the best for Pakistan. Lets see how things play out. My old stable mate world champion boxer manny pacquiao also joined politics.”
In the end, he wrote, “in Philipines, I have been watching the great work Manny Pacquiao has done for his country and I know I could do the same for pakistan. It will be a massive decision to make. I one day might consider this. I like to ask my followers what they think about this?”
But right after two days this time taking to Twitter he shared that he declined the offer.
Politics aside… U can’t knock the work pakistan army are doing. That’s the back bone of the country. Big respect goes to Coas General Bajwa, ISI General Fes and @OfficialDGISPR. Every attack, floods, earthquakes the pak army are the first to reach and help. #Respect 🙌🏽 pic.twitter.com/yfoyU6qjfV— Amir Khan (@amirkingkhan) October 22, 2020
