Attack On Pakistani Teen Activist(Malala) Sparks Outrage   :: News

ISLAMABAD — Schools shut their doors in protest and Pakistanis across the country held vigils Wednesday to pray for a 14-year-old girl who was shot by a Taliban gunman after daring to advocate education for girls and criticize the militant group.

The shooting of Malala Yousufzai on Tuesday in the town of Mingora in the volatile Swat Valley horrified Pakistanis across the religious, political and ethnic spectrum. Many in the country hoped the attack and the outrage it has sparked will be a turning point in Pakistan’s long-running battle against the Taliban, which still enjoys considerable public support for fighting U.S. forces in neighboring Afghanistan.

Top U.S. officials condemned the attack and offered to help the girl.

A Taliban gunman walked up to a bus taking children home from school and shot Malala in the head and neck. Another girl on the bus was also wounded. Pictures of the vehicle showed bloodstained seats where the girls were sitting.

Malala appeared to be out of immediate danger after doctors operated on her early Wednesday to remove a bullet lodged in her neck. But she remained in intensive care at a hospital in the northwestern city of Peshawar, and Pakistan’s Interior Minister said the next 48 hours would be crucial.

Small rallies and prayer sessions were held for her in Mingora, the eastern city of Lahore, the southern port city of Karachi and the capital of Islamabad. In newspapers, on TV and in social media forums, Pakistanis voiced their disgust with the attack, and expressed their admiration for a girl who spoke out against the Taliban when few dared.

Even the country’s top military officer – a man who rarely makes public statements – condemned the shooting and visited the Peshawar hospital to check on the teenager.

“In attacking Malala, the terrorist have failed to grasp that she is not only an individual, but an icon of courage and hope who vindicates the great sacrifices that the people of Swat and the nation gave, for wresting the valley from the scourge of terrorism,” Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said in a statement.

In Washington, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said US officials “strongly condemn” the shooting and called it “barbaric” and “cowardly.”

He said U.S. has offered any assistance to Malala, mentioning possible air ambulance transport to a facility suitable for her treatment if it becomes necessary.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton praised the young Pakistani girl.

“She was attacked and shot by extremists who don’t want girls to have an education and don’t want girls to speak for themselves, and don’t want girls to become leaders,” she said.

At the United Nations, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attack on Malala, calling it a “heinous and cowardly act,” U.N. spokesman Nartin Nesirky said.

Malala is admired across Pakistan for exposing the Taliban’s atrocities and advocating girls’ education in the face of religious extremism.

At the age of 11, she began writing a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC about life under the Taliban in the Swat Valley. After the military ousted the militants in 2009, she began publicly speaking out about the need for girls’ education, something the Taliban strongly opposes.

The group claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack, vowed to target her again.

Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik said authorities have identified her attackers and know how they got into the valley, but no arrests have been made.

The news that surgeons were able to remove a bullet lodged in Malala’s neck was greeted with relief by many. But even with such an outpouring of grief and outrage in Pakistan over the young girl’s shooting, it was unclear whether it would indeed trigger a shift in public opinion against the Taliban.

Many in Pakistan view the group as waging a noble fight against U.S. troops that invaded another Muslim country, Afghanistan, and they argue that the Taliban problem within Pakistan will fade once American forces leave. They argue that Taliban attacks against targets in Pakistan aim to punish the government in Islamabad for its alliance with Washington.

“Pakistan society is polarized on who is doing terrorism,” said Hasan-Askari Rizvi, a political analyst in Lahore. He said that divide has been evident even in the public condemnations of the attack, with some people speaking out strongly against the Taliban while others have criticized the government for failing to protect Malala.

Omar R. Quraishi, the editorial pages editor at Pakistan’s English-language Express Tribune newspaper, questioned whether the public outrage had reached such a critical mass that it would indeed mark a turning point.

He said Kayani’s strong statement in support of the girl may be an attempt to gauge whether there is enough public outrage to support a sharp response from the army against the Taliban. The general, said Quraishi, doesn’t want to be in a position where people are asking: “Why are you fighting America’s wars?”

The Pakistani military has been waging a deadly fight in the tribal regions against militants at a cost of about 4,000 soldiers killed. But critics, especially in the U.S., accuse the army of going after militants that attack the Pakistani state while cultivating others that it feels will be useful someday in Afghanistan.

Still, there is a precedent in Pakistan of Taliban excesses provoking public outrage, which the military has then capitalized on to move against the militants.

In 2009, after a video surfaced of militants publicly whipping a woman, purportedly in the Swat Valley, triggered a wave of public revulsion, the army felt empowered enough to launch a major offensive against the Taliban in the area. Government forces flushed the militants out of the scenic valley, but failed to capture or kill the movement’s senior leaders.

ADMIN COMMENTS : as a Muslim I Condemn the acts done by Talibans, Islam orders to educate both  man and woman. Allah swt made women as our Companions,not slaves. they have full right to get education. .Even the salves can get What prophet[pbuh] said about education .

i strongly support taliban.yes Women can b educated but just think of todays generation bro its so polluted do you think women are safe today?every day u can come across crime against women even a 5yrs old gal is not safe today. and our education system is totally polluted today in this generation its better not to educate dem with duniya taleem better to educate them with deeni taleem. once u join your sis or daughter in school or college c how they change their mindset into western culture .malala too has the western thinking in her.allah has given her another chance so she sud change her thinking.



Yes,how ever im supporting but i came to know that She actually don’t like the environmental and dress and want to wear modern dress.

Shocking to me was, her father wished her to be politician, and she is not same track…. i can;t digest this.more how fast army reached to her,to pickup and take her hospital. like they were watching.shoot.. just came down.

may be politics is mixed with all this.. i badly hate politics.!


yes the whole drama is seems to be played just to portrait muslims image bad again, and even I am shocked to see this post in this website as i consider you to be a very fact oriented person, but this is shocking to see such post with sympathetic


Yes, I feelt later, well….you forgot to see its in news category, However fact from me about the issue will come , very soon,InshahAllah!


Yes, I feelt later, well….you forgot to see its in news category, However fact from me about the issue will come , very soon,InshahAllah!



I don;t,yes the environment is not Good but yet they must get education.

Knowledge is Power… I Believe …

Shaitan don;t want anyone get educated,becoz then he can easily fool person,as people will not be able to know bad or good.

Remember the Quran Word.. IQRA.



We have to identify what is wrong in western culture…

today MILLION of Muslims are living Islamic life in Western Culture!


I want to know where all the angry mobs are at. Does this not insult Islam also?


Are Talibans not muslims??
If so then the “religion of peace” is a load of crap It’s getting so low that they are now wanting to kill little girls.
I am fed up with muslims claiming it is “the religion of peace” and yet every day we hear of killings by radical ISLAMISTS all over the world.
Muslims, look at what you have to look forward to under sharia law.
If you are a girl and want to improve yourself and learn…they will kill you…
what a wonderful religiont!!!!
As for that wanker HB…mate you are a brainwashed moron. Your own religion is killing innocents daily and you are blaiming it on drones.
Maybe you should tell your muslim mates to stop the killings all over the world and then the drones will no doubt stop.


See this is the misconception and dual standards of judgement, when any jew commit any crime its the person who will be accused but when any muslim commit any crime its the Islam who put under the trail, if a person is failed to practice the Islam properly its his/her fault not Islam’s fault, before blaming any thing or being so judgmental give that thing a chance at least learn and read, know about the thing you are blaming.


“If you are a girl and want to improve yourself and learn…they will kill you…what a wonderful religiont!!!!”…….

No, you are mistaken,

Islam doesn’t prevent girls from learning or studying. Islam wants all of us to learn the things which will benefit us, whether you are a male or female. Even the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) mentioned to his Companions to learn which will benefit them.


Ameen, Ameen Ya Rabb. May Allah SWT save us from the danger in this world and in the hereafter, Ameen.


Brother what about the children who have been killed in drone attacks, why we never talked about them and so much active for this action ? In every channel we see malala malala and only malala, there were 2 more girls with her who get injured by the firing, why no body cover them ?? if not against the education but Islam surely don’t allow any muslim women to come in front of so many na mahram (via tv) bey hijab.


Muslims answer to everything….BLAME SOMEONE ELSE
