Malala is just a puppet being controlled by the US’… ‘Who survives a Taliban attack? She must be a CIA agent!’

I am a Pakistani who has been deeply saddened by these words and greatly disappointed by our nation’s reaction to ‘Malala Day’. Who was Malala? No, she was definitely not a CIA agent or a puppet; she is an education activist, living at that time, in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. She was working for women rights, particularly that of acquiring education.

 It was 9th October, 2012 when she was shot in the head and neck for the reason of going to school, in critical condition she was taken to UK for a brain surgery which was successful. On being given the honor of making a speech in the UN and being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize the Pakistani nation reacted by saying things like ‘America is giving her unneeded attention’, ‘So what if she got a bullet in her head? That’s no reason to get a Nobel Prize for’ ‘She ruined the image of Pakistan in the whole world’ and ‘We had Arfa Karim and Abdul Sattar Edhi, why not them and why Malala?’.

My dearest Pakistanis, do you even realize what you’re saying? Malala is the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize award and her being Pakistani makes her a representative of Pakistan. This is a great honor for our country, she got shot but the whole nation got credit for it. Every single person in the conference stood up to clap for Malala as she ended her speech. All of you who think that she ruined our country’s image should become aware that ‘every girl who wants education is killed’ was not what she portrayed to the world; it was her talent, her incredible capabilities and her stupendous bravery that were exhibited in the UN conference to which she got a thundering applause.

Coming to other talents of our country; Abdul Sattar Edhi and Arfa Karim who were openly compared to Malala giving the hint that she was not as brilliant as they were or vice versa. Firstly, I would like to share to those who don’t know facts, Abdul Sattar Edhi has been recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize by the Pakistani government. Arfa Karim, the youngest Microsoft specialist has a science park in Lahore named after her. Malala has received exaltation higher than any as we can see because she is only sixteen and she threatened the Taliban in the way as they had banned education for girls in her area but she strived to achieve her dreams even if her life got in the way.

Conclusively, I would say Malala is a true hero who has brought a great name to our country in whole of History. Being a nation, we all should acknowledge this and honor her in a way she deserves.
