According to the Forbes magazine, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden are among the most powerful people in the world.
Osama bin Laden is ranked 57th due to the fact that impressionable youth continue to self-detonate in his name.
Putting Ibrahim on 63rd place, Forbes said ‘Ibrahim, a prime suspect in 1993 Mumbai blasts, is now India’s most wanted man and is the boss of Mumbai-based 5,000-member organised crime syndicate D-Company’.
‘The US declares him a global terrorist. US government says he shares smuggling routes with Al Qaeda and has collaborated with both Al Qaeda and its South Asian affiliate, Lashkar-e-Taiba, which carried out November 2008 Mumbai attacks, possibly with Ibrahim’s help,’ the magazine said on its website.
The list comprises ‘the 68 who matter’ of the 6.8 billion people on the planet, as per the magazine.
