Imran Khan is bidding to be the next Prime Minister of Pakistan, a country viewed by some as dangerously divided and on the brink of becoming a failed state.
The cricketing legend has been campaigning in Scotland after a change in the law gave overseas Pakistanis a vote in upcoming elections.
Khan has pledged to cut military ties with the United States, end corruption, and bring more democracy to Pakistan.
In an interview with Scotland Tonight, he said the view from the west is not just wrong, but damaging.
