His political views as he would put it are ‘moderate’. He is very open about his political stance and shares the reason why he joined PTI through a social platform saying, “I do believe that a just and fair society can be built only on the foundations of justice. PTI is the only party, striving hard to establish this fact on the ground. Because of this ideology and the chairman’s inspirational leadership spirit, I joined the party. Chairman Imran Khan’s actions are quite evidently louder than words, unlike any other politician. I am trying hard and will put all my efforts for the growth and betterment of PTI and Pakistan.”

He is a great advocate of planting more trees and making Pakistan green, he actively shares how planting more trees will be highly beneficial for the people in so many ways, including how barren land would also mean purifying water will become harder and slower hence we should plant more trees and refrain from cutting the existing ones.
