Scottish writer William Dalrymple strange response over Pakistani PM Khan reading his Book during return flight from US

ISLAMABAD - Scottish writer William Dalrymple strange response over Pakistani PM Khan reading his Book during return flight from US.

Scottish writer William Dalrymple referred to a viral photograph of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan as “some guy reading” one of his books during a flight.

Khan, who recently delivered a passionate speech at the UNGA was accompanied by the country’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi during a flight.

Dalrymple has written several books on the Indian subcontinent, including The Last Mughal, White Mughals, City Of Djinns.

In the picture, trending on Pakistani twitter on Sunday, Imran Khan can be seen reading Dalrymple’s ‘The Anarchy’ while Pakistan foreign minister is peeking over from his seat as if to find out what Khan is doing with his smart phone.

In a light-hearted remark, Dalrymple instead of recognising Khan as Prime Minister opted to term him as “some guy” and poked fun at Qureshi saying: “while his friend reads his WhatsApp messages”.
