In a moving speech upon the arrival of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Imran Khan highlighted and requested the freedom of the thousands of Pakistanis who carry out labour and suffer from ill-treatment and harsh conditions in his Kingdom.

In 2018, these workers made the second largest migrant community in the Kingdom and in 2016, their remittances amounted up to almost six billion dollars.

Most of these people went to Saudi to earn a living and support their families, however, the punishment for overstaying a visa leads to immediate imprisonment, which is why thousands of our people have virtually been trapped in their prisons, away from their families and homes.

The fact that Imran even brought it up could have been a tricky turn of events in the so far peaceful visit of the Prince. Instead, it proved to be a huge success.

After Imran’s request, MBS ordered the release of thousands of prisoners in Saudi Arabia, with remaining cases to be reviewed.

This is a HUGE, huge huge win for Pakistan and for Prime Minister Immy. Such quick action is exactly what we this country needs and getting it done this quickly is a huge vote of confidence in the eyes of the people.

Pakistanis all over Twitter are full of appreciation towards Imran Khan.

With big changes coming into the game so quickly, we all wait with anticipation to see what could come next.
