Jemima Khan (née Goldsmith) is the British UNICEF goodwill Ambassador, ex-wife of Pakistani cricketer turned politician, Imran Khan, and a supporter of the self-professed counter-extremist think tank, the Quilliam Foundation.


In April 2008, she was invited by Ed Husain to attend the launch of the Quilliam Foundation. Jemima Khan gave a short speech about the importance of the Quilliam Foundation and wished them success.[1]

In 2011, sponsored by the Reprieve organisation, she spoke out against US drone strikes in Pakistan.[2]

On 7 May 2016, following Zac Goldsmith's heavy defeat in the 2016 London mayoral election by Sadiq Khan, Jemima tweeted that her brother was an "eco-friendly, independent-minded politician with integrity" and his campaign, which has been widely criticised for using "dog-whistle racism", did not reflect this.[3][4]
