Imran Khan's mother received best treatment from hospital in UK

The PML N social Media team and people associated with it have started malicious propoganda against Imran Khan about his money trail and has attacked his mother and her treatment in London. Originally generated by PML-N social media pages these allegations have not yet been put forth in any of legal proceedings or any other formal level, it has already become a de facto defence of PML-N social media activists and pages.

Contrary to these misconceptions and propagandist rants, Imran Khan did take his mother to the UK for treatment.

Witnessing his mother’s pain and misery, Khan used the best that his fame, money and influence could provide for her. 

It was at a very chronic stage that the family had come to know about his mother’s fatal disease. The feelings of helplessness, as he has described in his book, generated the idea of making a hospital. 

If this could happen to a mother of a person like Khan, he wondered, what would happen to the people who cannot even afford treatment at home, let alone in the UK.

He made a hospital in his mother’s memory even though he could afford treatment, realising what the poor people go through. A tribute, as he thinks, similar or perhaps magnanimous than any other monument for the deceased beloved.

After retiring from cricket in 1992, Khan had decided to put all his efforts in completing a cancer hospital in Lahore for which he had been gathering funds and patronage from the late 1980s.

Though Khan had already decided to retire in 1987, he kept playing and eventually lead the team to win the 1992 World Cup. 

This was done solely on the hope that he could attract a continuous flow of funds for his cancer hospital project, and it was only possible as long as he remained a popular cricketer and a successful captain in a country where everyone is obsessed with cricket.
