Malala named in Time’s 100 Most Influential List for a second time


Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai made it to Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential List for the second time.

Time presented its annual list online on Thursday, naming the most influential people worldwide, including artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons. The list will appear in the April 27 issue of the magazine.

Malala came under international spotlight after Taliban attacked her in Swat for campaigning for girls’ education. She received a bullet injury to her head but successfully recovered after undergoing surgery in Britain.

The 17–year-old was once again listed in the ‘Icons’ category of the list with other renowned personalities, including Pope Francis, writer Haruki Murakami, designer Diane von Furstenburg and others.

In the annual list, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin are in the ‘Leaders’ category among others.
