Yesterday was a very sad day for the ‘hope’ of peace in Pakistan. After the peaceful march of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf where the purpose was to bring awareness about the bad effects of drone attacks on suspected Taliban leadership, Taliban came up with a beautiful gift for the whole Muslim nation.
Illiterate and sick minded terrorists attacked 14 year old school girl Malala Yousafzai. They fired the bullet in her head when she was on her way back to home from school. She was in the school bus while targeted. Her two friends also got injured. Malala is in critical condition at the moment, surviving for her life. Taliban have accepted the responsibility and have claimed that they punished her for her opinion against them. Her fault was that she wanted to have the right of education for herself and her female friends who were being deprived of the same in 2009. At that time, Malala used to write blogs for BBC URDU website by using a fictitious name ‘Gul Makai’, in which she highlighted the issues faced by school going girls as a result of terrorism and attacks on the girls schools in Swat by the terrorists Taliban.
Malala’s blogs got great popularity and brought awareness about the conditions in Swat valley. By the efforts of Pakistan Army, the schools were reopened and once again girls were allowed to study. Malala was awarded National Peace Award in December 2011 by then prime minister of Pakistan Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani. She is a great brave girl who became an ideal for many of us.
Today I have no doubt to say that Taliban are not different from Israeli Army, who targets children in Palestine. Only difference is that Israeli are Jews and Taliban claim to be Muslims, which they are not in fact. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) clearly said, “Getting education is mandatory for every Muslim man and woman”. These racist terrorists hit a female child who was coming home after attending her school. Shame on the so-called self acclaimed Islamic leaders. I hate their cruel faces. These pigs have let our country down once again. They have clearly demonstrated that you have no concern with the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. All the peace-loving peoples are condemning your shameful act all over the world.
Malala needs our prayers as she is being treated in Peshawar by a team of experienced surgeons. Allah SWT be kind on this daughter of Pakistan.
