Taliban’s Weak Claim ‘We Will Try to Kill Malala Yousafzai Again’ | Haider Rifaat
The sixteen-year old superhero, Malala Yousafzai has indeed made a substantial difference in today’s society with regard to promoting women’s rights, but will her efforts be thwarted by the Taliban yet again? Most recently, Shahidullah Shahid told the ABC News that the Taliban attacked Malala for making jokes on Islam. Shahid further added that if the Taliban spotted her within their radar, they would definitely try to kill her again and would laud their decision to do so.
We all know that the claims being made by the Taliban to attack Yousafzai are weak and irrational. If education is what the Taliban call ‘making jokes on Islam’ then that is an awfully ridiculous claim to be made publically, as Islam gives everyone the right towards seeking education. Malala Yousafzai is an advocate of children’s education and her main objective is to inspire children, especially young girls to read and write. I personally believe that the children who have been estranged from schooling should be given an incentive to learn, as education is the key to success.
There are over millions of children in Pakistan who are eager to read and write but are held back by the influence and fear of the Taliban. Yousafzai was first attacked on October 9th, 2012 when she was on a school bus in the northwest district of Swat. No matter how far the Taliban goes to hurt this brave young girl, Malala will continue to debilitate them by empowering young children to read and write.
