Decadent chocolate muffins on Imran Khan’s table steal thunder from his ‘miracle’ recovery
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is currently recovering from the injury he sustained to his right leg while escaping an ‘assassination attempt’ last week. Having a cast around his leg, he still holds press briefings and meets guests at his residence, footage of which is widely shared by his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party’s social media.
His schedule for Nov. 7 included a meeting with the family of Dr. Rizwan, who PTI says is a deceased officer of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) of Pakistan. While the meeting seemed important to Khan and his party, Pakistani Twitter users found something else to focus on in photos of the former prime minister’s residence.
Dressed in an all-blue hospital uniform, Khan was seen busy conversing with relatives of the deceased, but what caught the attention of Pakistanis was the table adorned with chocolate muffins and cookies served on a tray. While serving royal food to guests, especially by a former prime minister, shouldn’t come as a surprise, one user said the sight was a ‘miracle’ for someone who pushed the country into the abyss of seemingly endless inflation and external debt.
Pakistani Twitterati drool over ‘miraculous’ vision
While many wished Khan a speedy recovery and sent their best wishes, others seemed interested in the table which contained a “miraculous” charge. Zooming in on the image, you could see a decadent muffin. One Twitterati wrote “miracle” while another wrote that it was a lucky day for the table.

Khan, however, has reason to be confident as the hospitality of his guests was even better than what the Pakistani delegates were subjected to when visiting the United States.
A Pakistani journalist by the name of Taha Siddiqui tweeted on September 27 this year that the delegates, including Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, received only “coffee, cookies and water when meeting their American counterparts”. before US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken welcomes Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar for a dinner.
