Pak Army Chief, ISI chief on Forbes' Most Powerful People list
Islamabad, Dec. 7 (ANI): Pakistan's Army Chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and spymaster Zaheerul Islam are the only two from the country who have made it to Forbes' list of world's Most Powerful People.
The list is led by the US President, Pope Benedict XVI, Angela Merkel, Facebook's founder and other global leaders, reports The Express Tribune.
The American magazine placed Kayani on the 28th spot for "controlling nuclear weapons and one of the world's largest standing armies in an unstable country".
Following Kayani is Inter-Services Intelligence's (ISI) recently inducted chief, Zaheerul Islam.
The list also features a Mexican drug baron, and the young leader of North Korea - a hermit state assailed for pursuing a nuclear program at the expense of feeding its very poor people.
Last year's No. 2 on the list, Chinese President Hu Jintao, is among those who fell off the rankings altogether this time. In Hu's case it is because he's on his way out of office.
The ranking features 71 names, a figure Forbes said it set as a cutoff because there are an estimated 7.1 billion people in the world and thus the ranking works out to one very heavy hitter for every 100 million people. (ANI)
