Gharidah Farooqi said that sir this quote is of Rabindarnath Tagore not Khalil Jibran’s.
Sir, these are Rabindranath Tagore’s words, not Khalil Jibran’s.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy. https://t.co/OVIkBdxh9c

It is pertinent to mention that this is not the first time that prime minister Imran Khan has made the mistake. In April he was trolled as he mixed up island nation in East Asia, Japan with France while he was addressing a gathering. He was giving an example of how the country set up joint industries in the border region to strengthen economic ties with Germany.
