A book on former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was set for launch in Bangalore on Thursday but had to be cancelled after Hindu outfits protested against the program and demanded police not to give permission for the event.

The book titled “Imran Khan: A Living Legend” written by Sudhakar SB was set to be launched at Kalagrama near Mallathahalli in Bangalore at 5pm on Thursday.

The protests were called by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and Shri Ram Sena. Mohan Gowda, spokesperson of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, said, “Imran Khan is from an enemy nation. He hated India when he was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Many soldiers were killed in the Pulwama attack during his reign. Why should we allow the book launch of an anti-Indian?”

Following the protests, the hall owners cancelled the program alleging they were misguided by the organisers. India Today tried contacting the organisers repeatedly but they did not answer.

The invitation for the launch of the book titled “Imran Khan: A living legend”.

Calling the cancellation of the book launch “regrettable,” Sudhakar SB said that he would no longer push for the launch of the book anywhere in Bangalore. “All news channels have carried that somebody has written about Imran Khan..all this is nothing but propaganda against Imran Khan,” said Sudhakar adding, “There are no pro-Hindu or bad Hindu, all are Hindus in India…even I am a Hindu activist.”

It took Sudhakar three-and-a-half years to complete the research for the book although he did not contact Khan, the protagonist of his book, or anyone from Pakistan.

“The book talks about Imran Khan’s integrity, social awareness…commitment towards society, transparency towards administration and how he is committed to social justice and equality in Pakistan,” said the author.

“You may have watched Imran Khan’s India interviews,” said Sudhakar to explain how the former Pakistan Prime Minister “loves India and is a good friend of India.”

“…even foreign affairs minister S Jaishankar bravery and high integrity towards India has been praised by Imran Khan,” said Sudhakar.
