Pak PM mercilessly trolled for wrong attribution to inspiration.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan was rigorously trolled by Twitterati after he posted a quote by Rabindranath Tagore on his official Twitter account, attributing it to Lebanese writer and poet Khalil Gibran.
Sadly, the quote does not belong to Gibran but is actually one of Nobel laureate Tagore’s.The original quote is: “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

One Twitter user said, "Dear PM @ImranKhanPTI. We all know #WhatsApp had a big role in getting you "selected" but stop putting the fwds u rcv there online, especially when they are false. Like this one, which has not been said by Kahlil Gibran but Rabindranath Tagore."

While another noted, "And PM of 'Naya Pakistan', Imran Khan thinks it is quoted by Gibran. #Pakistan, pls take care of yourself cause your PM has lost it!"

"Another gem from Imran Khan's trove of knowledge, shares Tagore's work and calls it work of Kahlil Gibran," a third added.

The mistake points to Khan's ignorance of historical facts. But one would expect a leader to recognise the words of a poet whose words became an inspiration during the freedom struggle.
