I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the TalibanI come from a country that was created at midnight When I almost died it was just after middayWhen the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan one girl spoke out Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an educationOn Tuesday October 9 2012 when she was fifteen she almost paid the ultimate price She was sh Reading this book reminded me of how much I take for granted every day Freedom of speech Freedom of religion The freedom to go to the store without needing a male escort And the ability to get an education regardless of genderI was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to childrenMalala who is now 16 is an outspoken advocate for girls to have the same right to go to school as boys In her native Pakistan she lost that ability when the Taliban took over I was 10 when the Taliban came to our valley It seemed to us that the Taliban arrived in the night just like vampires They appeared in groups armed with knives and Kalashnikovs They looked so dark and dirty and that my father's friend described them as 'people deprived of baths and barbers'The Taliban started bombing schools and decreed that girls couldn't get an education Malala's father was a school principal and encouraged her to speak out She was only 15 at the time but threats were made against her and her family And in October 2012 when she was riding the school bus with her friends a man with a gun climbed aboard the vehicle and shot Malala in the headAmazingly Malala survived the bullet and was able to recover She and her family currently live in England but Malala writes about how much she misses her home country and wishes she could return to be with her friends Her graciousness was such that she did not wish revenge on her attacker and instead prays for peaceI thank Allah for the hardworking doctors for my recovery and for sending us to this world where we may struggle for our survival Some people choose good ways and some choose bad ways One person's bullet hit me It swelled my brain stole my hearing and cut the nerve of my left face in the space of a second And after that one second there were millions of people praying for my life and talented doctors who gave me my body back I was a good girl In my heart I had only the desire to help peopleMalala's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring I admire her courage and her tenacity and also hope that her country will one day find peace Why are we Muslims fighting with each other? We should focus on practical issues We have so many people in our country who are illiterate and many women have no education at all We live in a place where schools are blown up We have no reliable electricity supply Not a single day passes without the killing of at least one PakistaniThe book is lovingly written and I also appreciated her stories about the history of Pakistan and her people the Pashtuns While reading the book I realized that I knew about the history of other countries in the region such as Afghanistan Iran and India than I did about Pakistan and it was very informative I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in women's rights current events history or inspirational memoirsToday we all know education is our basic right Not just in the West; Islam too has given us this right Islam says every girl and every boy should go to school In the uran it is written God wants us to have knowledge He wants us to know why the sky is blue and about oceans and stars The Taliban could take our pens and books but they couldn't stop our minds from thinkingUpdate October 2014I was thrilled to hear that Malala had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work I have recommended this book to numerous people in the past year and am still amazed by her courage Three cheers for Malala

Malala Yousafzai Ï I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban TEXT

Ungest ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism of the fight for girls' education of a father who himself a school owner championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons In June 2020 Malala graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in PPE Politics Philosophy Economics The Oxford course has a remarkable number of famous politicians and public figures among its alumni listed HERE When the CoronavirusCovid 19 pandemic subsides may the world be her oyster Image Malala celebrating graduating with her family SourceReview from 2016This is a powerful story about a child but with topical global relevanceThe media is full of alarming reports of extremists of all religions across the globe Finding perspective can be hard especially for non believers and it’s important to balance valid criticism and condemnation with avoiding the suggestion that all followers of a faith are mad bad or dangerous to knowSo it’s good to read a positive portrayal not just of a religious person but a Muslim one The fact she is young female and influential is all the betterWho Is Malala?People around the world know her by her first name They know she campaigned for the right of girls to attend school initially via an anonymous blog on BBC Urdu aged 11 That she was shot in the head by the Taliban and eventually airlifted to hospital in Birmingham UK a city where she and her family currently live That she has a very close relationship with her father That she spoke at the UN on her 16th birthday That she was the youngest Nobel laureate when aged 17 she was joint winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize That she’s a devout Muslim That she’s a gigglerThat I knew I read this to understand especially why Ziauddin her father is so enlightened about women and their education; how and why Malala became a campaigner so young; the role and opinion of Tor Pekai her mother who was illiterate; and her two younger brothers Kushal and Atal raised in a culture that favours boys and men but perpetually in the shadow of their sisterI learned the chronology and a fair bit about Pashtun culture the natural beauty of Swat recent Pakistani political history Taliban tactics and the difficulty of living as a displaced person at home and abroadI discovered that Malala loves Cheesy Wotsits Justin Bieber Ugly Betty styling her hair Twilight halal KFC gently teasing her father highish heels pink and suabbling with the elder of her younger brothers She’s proud of her academic prizes because she earned them but has mixed feelings about the others because they remind her of how much still needs to changeShe comes across as a charming mixture of serious and light hearted mature and child like loyal to her heritage but open to other ideas and influences The perfect example was doing henna hand tattoos using symbols from chemistry and calculus rather than the traditional flowers and butterfliesBut I still don’t feel I really understand the family themselvesWho are Tor Pekai and Ziauddin?Theirs was unusually a love match rather than an arranged marriageTor Pekai may be uneducated and in the background but “ My mother comes from a family of strong women” and Ziauddin always shares information and decisions with her He’s the dreamer; she’s the practical one After Malala had been airlifted to the UK and the family were battling bureaucracy to join her it was Tor Pekai’s threatened hunger strike that got things slowly movingZiauddin apparently overcame a childhood stammer by determination and public speaking He was conscious of his preferential treatment for being a boy particularly in terms of education and felt that was wrong He was briefly radicalised in his youth but going away to college when Benazir Bhutto was PM he discovered “ women who had greater freedom and were not hidden away as in in his own village” That seems insufficient explanation for founding a chain of schools against extraordinary odds and speaking out against governments and terrorists “ It was my grandmother’s faith in my father that gave him the courage to find his own proud path” HmmOne answer to my uestions is the fact that Ziauddin carries a version of Martin Niemöller’s famous poem in his pocket First they came forWhose Voice Whose Truth?The significant biographies will be written decades hence but until then this is an important and readable book and I don’t want to diminish that It is by Malala in conjunction with journalist Christina Lamb The writing can be a little uneven and plodding I sometimes lost track of how old Malala was and it’s not always clear to what extent her thoughts and words are really hers or have been modulated moderated or embroideredMaybe it doesn’t matter When the Islamic studies teacher couldn’t be trusted her father advised “ Learn the literal meaning of the Arabic words; don’t follow his explanations and interpretations Only learn what God says His words are divine messages which you are free to interpret”There’s a fair bit of mythologizing “ My father always said ‘Malala will be free as a bird’ but I wondered how free a daughter could ever be” She was always special the family’s luck changed after her birth omens abound etc “ All children are special to their parents but to my father I was his universe” – he had a wife and two other childrenBut given Malala’s life and stature on the word stage mythologizing is perhaps inevitable and even appropriate ButControversyAlthough feted around the world Malala remains a controversial figure in the country she loves and to which she repeatedly and firmly says she wants to returnThe extremists think her a puppet of the west and too liberal in her interpretation of Islam Even moderates dislike her for symbolising bad aspects of their country and think her hypocritical for living in greater comfort abroad as if it were her choiceThe Pakistani government created the role of Educational Attaché in the UK for Ziauddin so the family would have income and diplomatic passports and crucially not be eligible to claim asylum in the UK which would make Pakistan look badWhat Next?“ We might be the world’s best treated refugees” The Yousafzai family may live in greater material comfort now but the pain and loneliness of their new lives especially for Tor Pekai is made plainIt’s not safe for Malala and her family to return to Swat at the moment Meanwhile she received an excellent education at an academically selective private girls’ school in Birmingham a city with a large population of Pakistani heritage She’s two years older than the other girls in her class but did well after the initial shock of no longer being effortlessly at the top of the class I assume her brothers are receiving a similar education After that there was speculation she might go to the US for university; the only certainty was that it wouldn’t be Pakistan In the end she went to Oxford to study the famous PPE Politics Philosophy Economics course While still at school she reiterated the decision made aged 13 that she wants to be a politician so Oxford's PPE followed by many British and overseas political figures makes sense How and where she applies it remains to be seen She’s certainly fearless and determined she only agreed to meet President Obama on condition they could talk rather than just have a photo opportunity and when she was awarded Pakistan’s first National Peace Prize she accepted it and then gave the PM a list of demandsJust as importantly Tor Pekai is attending classes in English reading and writingReligion in My LifeI was raised as an Anglican Church of England at home and at school A somewhat passive non evangelical sort of faith with dramatic architecture good music and beautiful wordsIn my late teens and early twenties I earnestly sought a personal experience of God There we
