Why only criminals are described as the 'Most wanted'?Consider the following list -
1. NIA Most Wanted
2. FBI Most Wanted Terrorists
3. The World's 10 Most Wanted
4. Saudi list of most wanted suspected terrorists
5. United States Secret Service Most Wanted Fugitives
Have you ever come across any list like -
1. The Most Wanted Leaders
2. The Most Wanted Actors/Actresses
3. The Most Wanted Heroes
4. The Most Wanted Television Shows
Literally the phrase - 'most wanted' means someone or something most sought after, especially as a criminal suspect.
The question is why only the suspected or actual criminals are most wanted, not the people with distinctions and achievements.
