Khan lauded Navjot Singh Sidhu and said he was impressed by former cricketer's command of the Sufiana Kalam.
Imran Khan described the situation between India and Pakistan with a verse of Munir Niazi that goes "Kuch Sher de log vi Zalam san, Kuj Sanu marran da shoq vi Si". He said both the countries cannot move forward without breaking the chains of past.
Khan cited examples of France and Germany who fought many wars. "If France and Germany can move forward, why can't we?" He said all the political parties, government and the army in Pakistan were on same page.
