"We will make Pakistan a place where people come from other countries to seek jobs.” -Imran Khan 
Dancing to the dhol and waving the party's red and green flag, thousands of followers of Imran Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) filled the far-reaching Minar-e-Pakistan ground on October 30, 2011.

"Who will save Pakistan? Imran Khan, Imran Khan," the crowd roared.

According to media reports at least 100,000 people gathered to see the former cricketer, whose anti-American, anti-corruption approach has made him a sensation; especially among the elite urban youth.
