Prime Minister Imran Khan and education activist Malala Yousafzain are featured in the list of Most Admired People in 2021. PM Imran Khan has made a comeback in the list after 2019. Both, Malala Yousafzai and Imran Khan were featured together in the same list by YouGov survey in 2019 and 2018.
This year the study surveyed more than 42,000 people in 38 countries. The results are calculated from the responses of two questions-whether a respondent admires the figure at all and then whether they are the figure the respondents admire the most. Malala Yousafzai seems to have improved her rankings in the list.
A few days ago, Malala Yousafzai was also included in the list of BBC’s 100 Women list 2021. Regarding Malala Yousafzai, BBC said, “Her activism began with blogs for the BBC about living under Taliban rule in Pakistan and the ban on girls attending school. In October 2012, a gunman boarded her bus, looking for her, and shot her in the head.”
BBC also talked about her charity organization, Malala Fund. The media outlet said that Malala has continued to work as the co-founder of Malala Fund, “aiming to build a world where every girl can learn and lead without fear”.
