Apart from his long, threatening speech which exceeded his stipulated 15-minute time limit, this particular slip-up by the cricketer-turned-politician has amused Twitter.

I spoke to President Modi and said look, we have similar problems. The highest number of people reside in this sub-continent."

Imran Khan's UNGA address

Addressing the 74th United Nations General Assembly at the UN Headquarters, New York, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Kahn, on Friday, predicted 'another Pulwama' when restrictions in Kashmir are completely lifted. He admitted to Pakistan's backing for Mujahideen and the country's flimsy economy. He blamed India for its current standing at the FATF. He also made an absurd Hollywood reference to defend terrorism, stating the possibility of a terror attack in Kashmir. Curiously, he repeatedly brought up his former cricket career and rambled on for 50 minutes at the UNGA.
