March 26, 2019
RIYADH (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has become the first ever Pakistani leader and politician to feature on the cover page of a leading Saudi Magazine Arrajol. Saudi Arabia’s popular Arrajol magazine adorned its cover with the photo of Imran Khan. Arrajol, a 27-year-old leading Saudi Magazine, has never featured any Pakistani in the past. The picture has taken the internet by storm, with PTI supporters sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. According to some Pakistani expats in Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Imran Khan has lifted the country’s image significantly ever since he gained power in the center. His supporters believe PM Khan enjoys unprecedented popularity in the Arab world which is evident from ‘Arrajol’s cover story. Meanwhile, Saudi lifestyle magazine’s April edition will feature an exclusive story on Pakistan’s premier. The glimpses from the story suggest it would be Khan’s interview on his life. The quotes from the interview appearing on the cover page say, “I was shy,” and “building a new Pakistan is my dream.”
