    Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan, who has been at loggerheads with the present government of the country and is facing multiple cases following the violence after he was arrested on May 9, recalled his days of hiking with his sons.

    Sharing a picture on Twitter of one such hike, he wrote: “The only thing I miss these days is hiking in our northern mountains with my sons. Allah has blessed Pakistan with the best mountain trekking in the world. Inshallah one day we will make Pakistan the skiing capital of the world.”

    This comes a day after Khan and his wife were barred from leaving the country. “The federal government has decided to add the names of 80 people, including PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi, to the no-fly list,” a local news channel had reported.

    The former Pakistan PM, however, has got protection from arrest until early next month by a court in Islamabad. The development comes as the authorities have been cracking down on the supporters of Khan. Thousands had staged violence protests, and attacked public property and military installations following Khan’s arrest. The violence subsided only days later, after Khan was released on the orders of the country’s Supreme Court.

    The 70-year-old cricketer-turned-politician has also locked horns with the Pakistan Army since last year when then COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa withdrew backing for his government and refused to ensure he did not lose the opposition no-confidence motion in April 2022, bringing his prime ministerial term to an abrupt end.
