MINGORA, Pakistan — Fourteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai was admired across a battle-scarred region of Pakistan for exposing the Taliban’s atrocities and advocating for girls’ education in the face of religious extremists. On Tuesday, the Taliban nearly killed her to quiet her message.

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 .

Get up sister Malala , Our Duas are with you.. may Allah protect you from harm and grant you victory over those who r oppressing your community !


A gunman walked up to a bus taking children home from school in the volatile northern Swat Valley and shot Malala in the head and neck. Another girl on the bus was also wounded.

The young activist was airlifted by helicopter to a military hospital in the frontier city of Peshawar. A doctor in the city of Mingora, Tariq Mohammad, said her wounds weren’t life-threatening, but a provincial information minister said after a medical board examined the girl that the next few days would be crucial.

Malala began writing a blog when she was just 11 under the pseudonym Gul Makai for the BBC about life under the Taliban, and began speaking out publicly in 2009 about the need for girls’ education – which the Taliban strongly opposes. The extremist movement was quick to claim responsibility for shooting her.

“This was a new chapter of obscenity, and we have to finish this chapter,” Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan by telephone.

The shooting provoked outrage across the country, angering Pakistanis who have seen a succession of stories about violence against women by the Taliban.

“This attack cannot scare us nor the courageous Malala. This cowardly act cannot deter Malala to give up her efforts,” said Azizul Hasan, one of the girl’s cousins.

Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf condemned the attack and called her a daughter of Pakistan. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland called the shooting “barbaric” and “cowardly.”

Leila Zerrougui, the U.N. special representative for children in armed conflict, condemned the attack “in the harshest terms.” “Education is a fundamental right for all children,” she said in a statement. The Taliban “must respect the right to education of all children, including girls, to go to school and live in peace.”

The attack displayed the viciousness of Islamic militants in the Swat Valley, where the military conducted a major operation in 2009 to clear out insurgents, and a reminder of the challenges the government faces in keeping the area free of militant influence.

In her BBC blog, Malala wrote about not wearing her uniform to school after officials warned it might attract the Taliban’s attention, and how many other students moved out of the valley after the Taliban issued an edict banning girls from school. She wrote about the Taliban movement had kept her family from going out after sunset.

While chairing a children’s assembly supported by UNICEF in the valley last year, the then-13-year-old championed a greater role for young people.

“Girl members play an active role,” she said, according to an article on the U.N. organization’s website. “We have highlighted important issues concerning children, especially promoting girls’ education in Swat.”

She was nominated last year for the International Children’s Peace Prize, which is organized by the Dutch organization KidsRights to highlight the work of children around the world.

Malala was shot on her way home from a school run by her father, Ziauddin, who is also known in the valley for promoting education of girls.

The bus was about to leave the school grounds in Mingora, the largest city in Swat Valley, when a bearded man approached it and asked which one of the girls was Malala, said Rasool Shah, Mingora’s police chief. Another girl pointed to Malala, but the activist denied it was her and the gunmen then shot both of the girls, the police chief said.

The Swat Valley – nicknamed the Switzerland of Pakistan – was once a popular tourist destination for Pakistanis. Honeymooners used to vacation in the numerous hotels dotted along the river of the same name running through it. But the Taliban’s near-total takeover of the valley just 175 miles (280 kilometers) from the capital in 2008 shocked many Pakistanis, who considered militancy to be a far-away problem in Afghanistan or Pakistan’s rugged tribal regions.

Militants began asserting their influence in the valley in 2007 – part of a wave of al-Qaida and Taliban fighters expanding their reach from safe havens near the Afghan border.

By 2008 they controlled much of it and began meting out rules and their own brand of justice. During about two years of its rule, the Taliban forced men to grow beards, restricted women from going to the bazaar, whipped women they considered immoral and beheaded opponents.

Taliban militants in the region also destroyed around 200 schools. Most were girls’ institutions, though some prominent boys’ schools were struck as well. The private school owned and operated by Malala’s father was temporarily closed under the Taliban.

At one point, the Taliban said they were halting female education, a move that echoed their militant brethren in neighboring Afghanistan who during their rule barred girls from attending school.

While the Pakistani military managed to flush out the insurgents during the military operation, the Taliban’s top leadership escaped, leaving many of the valley’s residents on edge.

Kamila Hayat, a senior official of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, said Malala’s activism sent a global message that Pakistani girls could fight for their rights. But she also worried that Tuesday’s shooting would prevent other parents from letting their children speak out against the Taliban.

“This is an attack to silence courage through a bullet,” Hayat said. “These are the forces who want to take us to the dark ages.”

The problems of young women in Pakistan were the focus of a separate case before the high court, which ordered a probe Tuesday into an alleged barter of seven girls to settle a blood feud in a remote southwestern district. The tradition of families exchanging unmarried girls to settle feuds is banned under Pakistani law but still practiced in the country’s more conservative, tribal areas.

A tribal council ordered the barter in early September in the Dera Bugti district of Baluchistan province, the district deputy commissioner, Saeed Faisal, told the court. He did not know the girls’ ages but local media reported they were between 4 and 13 years old.

The Advocate General for the province could not confirm the incident.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry ordered Faisal to ensure that all members of the tribal council – and a local lawmaker – who belongs to one of the groups believed involved – appear in court on Wednesday.

The real Taliban(Afgan Taliban) do not oppose the education for girls rather they oppose the system co-education for girls where boys/girls sit in the same classroom, they want seperate school for girls to avoid their mingling with boys which is against the Shariah. Whereas in case of Pakistani Taliban- then these are fake taliban planted by Raw/CIA/Mossad to defame the real taliban and also make widespread blood shed and havoc and false propaganda throughout the world that Pakistan is a failed state and talibanisation has taken over the entire country and its nuclear arsenal can easily reach taliban’s hand, so better to take it away from them as this step will de-nuclearize Pakistan which will give Isreal a green signal for its plan on greater Isreal and India can get rid of its opponent from having any nuclear asset.
