Malala Yousafzai tops list of 101 most powerful Asians in UK.

Islamabad, Nov. 29 ( ANI ): Pakistani schoolgirl and education activist Malala Yousafzai has topped the list of 101 most powerful British Asians and Asian residents in the UK.

Malala is the only woman to feature in the top ten and has knocked out Labour MP Keith Vaz off the number one spot that he held last year, the Daily Times reports.

Malala went to Britain from Pakistan after she was shot in the head by the Taliban last year for fighting for girls' rights to education.

The power 101 was unveiled at a ceremony in London and others in the top 20 list were new Today programme presenter Mishal Husain, newsreader George Alagiah and One Direction member Zayn Malik. ( ANI )
