The Quote Imran Khan Shared On Twitter Actually Isn’t by Khalil Gibran

Confusion abounds.

In a time of misinformation, even Prime Minister Imran Khan can be forgiven for quoting the wrong person. Well, actually he credited the wrong person to the quote he shared on his Twitter recently.

While the stealthy cat filter incident from a few days ago was cute, miscrediting a quote is not that cute. Especially if you happen to be the Prime Minister of a country.

Recently Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted an inspirational quote by Rabindranath Tagore. Sounds normal, except he attributed it to Kahlil Gibran. Talk about not doing their research before hitting ‘send tweet.’

This mistake made Twitterati crawl out of the woodworks (and their skin).

Here’s What Happened

Imran Khan posted a picture of Rabindranath Tagore’s quote;

He captioned the photo:

“Those who discover and get to understand the wisdom of Gibran’s words, cited below, get to live a life of contentment.”

Turns out that quote is not by Gibran, but rather Tagore.

In case you aren’t aware, Khalil Gibran is a Lebanese writer. While Rabindranath Tagore is a famous Indian poet and Nobel laureate. Rabindranath Tagore’s original quote is phrased differently too:

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

That was too many mistakes for a tweet. So Twitterati dug right in.

This guy really took a dig at the PM’s election campaign.

Pakistan’s journalist community is doubling down.

All we can say is this. Someone at PM Office needs to hire a better social media intern. After Shaan’s gaffe with Sallahuddin Ayubi, we didn’t think this could happen to someone else.
