Just because he didn't massacre people under his rule, doesn't mean he wouldn't use brutal tactics in the process of achieving that rule or he wasn't violent.
He said (paraphrasing?) "we tried to give the people order," suggesting a possible police state.

So Khan's goverenment would have been a "People's Democratic Republic."
Nothing about Khan's statement implies an even nominally leftist government. It's just as probable that Khan's talk of "order" meant monarchism, or Confucianism, or fascist-style racism. There is literally nothing in his sentence that implies a "People's Democratic Republic" (i.e., a nominally leftist, Socialist, or Communist government which is in reality a dictatorship).
Democratic socialism is the hope of human freedom.
