Malala Yousafzai Age
Its true this courageous and eloquent girl of 22 years of age (born 22 July 1997) is being awarded because of her courage to stand her ground against tyranny.
Pakistan’s society produced Malala Yousafzai
But it’s Pakistan’s vibrant debate culture that is mature enough to produce true leader, that should also be recognized.
Unbiased Story of Malala Yousafzai
This is the true story Malala Yousafzai the Nobel Laureate of Pakistan, that gets drowned out in Western biased press.
Greatest Malala Yousafzai Quotes
These are Malala’s best quotes
- “my only regret was that I hadn’t had a chance to speak to them (the Taliban) before they shot me.’ And
- So, instead of painting all Pakistanis black in one stroke and saying “Pakistanis are so barbaric they shoot their own school girls”, she talked of “hope, resilience, and a more accurate reflection of the millions who reject such an act”
These quotes are enough to convince the skeptic that these words cannot be tutored to her.
Western Media is hurting Malala
So, stop parading her in front of suspect hypocrites like
- Hilary Clinton,
- Angelina Jolie and
She is Pakistan’s girl, born and raised in a far more secure, connected and fulfilling society.
Girls like Malala Yousafzai need support, not crutches
She doesn’t need Western, and especially Indian crutches to show how brave Muslim and Pakistani women are.
We have Benazir Bhutto for that ( do read my tribute about her).
Also, Pakistan doesn’t have a rape epidemic to worry about – thank you very much!
Do not use Malala for political point scoring
Pakistanis don’t like her being used as a symbol of what needs to be fixed in Pakistan.
Pakistan’s real problems highlighted by Malala
We know our problems; The problems are:-
- poor governance, and
- Illiteracy – Ignorance.
Stop the Hypocrisy on Malala Yousafzai
Western hypocrisy is just adding to our woes.
So the west should lay off her because you are feeding into the national hysteria by doing the following wrongs:-
- Condescending comments like, “She is Pakistan’s greatest person and represents their (Pakistan’s) greatest shame” brings bad light on her.
- The Westerners’ bomb the hell out of Iraq based on a lie and arm extremists around the globe and Malala is our shame?
- The west implies that Taliban is Pakistan.
Where did Malala’s attacker come from?
In fact, the Taliban phenomenon was a geopolitical game, and has nothing to do with Islam and Pakistan’s intrinsic culture.
- Also, see why the world hates Islam
Malala Yousafzai and Protection of Women in Pakistan
The constitution of Pakistan makes special provisions for the protection of women.
Punjab Government has passed a special law in 2016 that guarantees protection of women against violence and quick delivery of services.
Loud mouthed Indians shout ‘dysfunctional Pakistan cannot protect its women folk’; is not true.
Islam’s guarantee of Protection of Women
Islam guarantees protection of women.
- Prophet Muhammad said: “Only an honorable man will treat women with honor and integrity. And only a mean, deceitful and dishonest man humiliates and insults women.”
- Referring to physical abuse, he added: “Never hit your wives, they are your partners and sincere helpers.”
Stop using Malala to berate Pakistan
It makes Pakistan look like a failed state — which it isn’t yet, when they write
“they were beheading policemen inside Mingora city, when this lone voice (Malala) wrote a blog against terror”.
The fact is Pakistan wrestled back the Swat from Mullah Fazlullah, and guess what?
He is being wined and dined inside Afghanistan along with his cohorts, right under Western military’s nose.
Malala Yousafzai’s awards
One Sitara e Shujaat given to her in 2011 for gallantry has more legitimacy than all two dozen awards that followed, including the Nobel Prize.
After all Obama (Syria war fame), Henry Kissinger (Far East war fame) and Menachem Begin (butcher of Lebanon fame) were also awarded the same.
If the condescending Western media really wants to help then they should put money where their mouth is and fund Pakistan’s schools and healthcare.
Why USA needs to fund Pakistan?
After all it’s the 3rd world resources and local tribesmen land on which they have built empires.
Malala Yousafzai’s great work
Don’t get me wrong she has done solid work as well. She inspired Pakistan’s
- “Right to Free and Compulsory Education Bill,” signed in 2012.
Now, all kids between ages 5 and 16 are guaranteed free education.
- U.N. paid heed to her words when Global Education First Initiative, a project that aims to bring quality and inclusive education to all, was launched worldwide.
- Malala Fund aims for tangible results in the fight for access to education.
- She has funded schools in Lebanon; Shangla, Swat and FATA in Pakistan subsidizing tuition, books and uniforms etc.
- Just one donation of hers’ was $ 7 Million.
- Her 3 million people petition to the Government of Pakistan has enabled us to invest $ 8 billion in education last year.
This is being overshadowed by her rhetoric in western media.
Malala’s real Achievement
Malala’s real achievement was appearing more ‘manly’ than her terrorists.
Don’t take that away.
This brave 11 years old came out of the operating room more louder than the voices of obscurantists and darkness.
While people still remember Benazir and will remember Malala, no one gives a second thought to their assassins.
Above everything else, her ability to forgive her assassin,
“I do not even hate the Talib who shot me. I didn’t even think a single bad thought about the man who shot me, I forgive him” – shows greatness.
