ISI Chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha has made it on the ’2011 Time 100 list’. The list includes the names of 100 most influential people of 2011.

The list was released Thursday on the magazine’s website. Former CIA director Michael Hayden in the list has written about Pasha and said that the Lt General is a “Pakistani Patriot” and an American partner.

Within weeks of Lieut. General Ahmed Shuja Pasha’s becoming head of Pakistan’s top intelligence agency, ISI, in 2008, terrorist attacks in Mumbai seriously roiled already stressed U.S.-Pakistani relations. Pasha, 59, has grown progressively more suspicious of U.S. motives and staying power. The arrest of a U.S. government contractor in Lahore has led to acrimony. And larger changes in Pakistan — the growth of fundamentalism, nationalism and anti-Americanism — have squeezed the space in which any ISI chief can cooperate with the U.S.

Other people who made the list are Justin Bieber, Michelle and Barak Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Julian Assange, Colin Firth, Joe Biden, Aung San Suu Kyi, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, General David Petraeus, Matt Damon and Gary White, Mark Wahlberg,and Lionel Messi.
