PM Imran Khan named among Time’s 100 most influential people 2019

TIME magazine recently released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2019, and making it to the list is Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. The list, released on Wednesday, has chosen the influential people under four categories: leaderspioneersartistsicons and titans.

Journalist Ahmed Rashid wrote the following regarding Prime Minister Imran Khan for Time‘s 100 most influential people issue:-

“Pakistan is at a critical crossroads, and the man in charge is the closest it has to a rock star. Imran Khan captained the team that won the 1992 Cricket World Cup, built a world-class cancer hospital in Lahore, then a top-notch university for kids who could never have dreamed of attending one. Twenty years ago, he entered politics—a dirty business in Pakistan at the best of times. Now he is Prime Minister of an impoverished nation that cannot pay its bills and is dependent on handouts from rich neighbours like China and the Arab Gulf states. Critics say Khan is too close to the army and Islamic fundamentalists, and chooses advisers poorly. Driven by fierce ambition, he can be cold and calculating. But he still generates the broadest hope among young and old that he can turn Pakistan around, and help make South Asia an ocean of peace rather than a state of permanent conflict.”

Other world leaders who made it to this list include US President Donald Trump, China’s Xi Jinping, New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Ardern, as well as the prime minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed.

Other Famous celebrities, athletes & leaders who made it to this list include Mark Zuckerberg
LeBron James, The Rock – Dwayne Johnson, Taylor Swift, Sandra Oh, TV journalist Gayle King, Ariana Grande, LeBron James, Golf legend Tiger Woods, Spike Lee, soccer star Mohamed Salah & House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
