Ideology

.Khan's proclaimed political platform and declarations include: Islamic values, to which he rededicated himself in the 1990s; liberal economics, with the promise of deregulating the economy and creating a welfare state; decreased bureaucracy and anti-corruption laws, to create and ensure a clean government; the establishment of an independent judiciary; overhaul of the country's police system; and an anti-militant vision for a democratic Pakistan.^ Current party members are largely middle class professionals with no previous political experience, but who share Khan's vision of a "soft revolution" that will cleanse Pakistan of corruption and improve the country's abysmal health and education systems, as well as sweep aside all "brown-sahib" remnants of British colonialism.

A judge in the U.S. ruled him to be the father of Tyrian Jade White, but Khan has denied paternity.[47]
