People were lauding Imran Khan:
If people think that @ImranKhanPTI can’t deliver. Have a good look at #KartarpurCorridor . He did what no one can do, how can we expect a country broken by corruption to the lowest level to come out to 💯 in just one year or over night. I have no doubt that vote I gave was wrong.

The #BabriMasjid verdict & the opening of the #KartarpurCorridor 2day hv shown how tolerant the 2 respective countries are towards minority religions.While we’re opening up to other faiths,our neighbours seem 2be suppressing them further. Why can't the world see what is going on? pic.twitter.com/Re9bMwBieA

Dear World, Pakistan has the largest Gurdwara in the world. It's on the #KartarpurCorridor and welcomes Sikhs from all over the planet.Yes, it's the same Muslim country that did not have Mosques that were safe to visit a few years ago. With our resilience we turned it around.🇵🇰❤️
