A Child Hero: Malala Yousufzai

Pakistan is generally used to describe as hub of honor killings, Islamists, fundamentalists and terrorists. The people within the country acknowledged the situation, terming the times as horrible.

Hence, they moan about politics through social media and feel a little lightsome after tweeting in a radical tenor. Once in a while a Pakistani genius come out, defying all barricades and limitations, whether social, gender based or financial, proving to
fellow countrymen and rest of the world that Pakistan is land, having untapped potency in its citizens.

Malala Yousufzai, a young and courageous girl of Swat, is one of exemplary cases. He used pain and chaos to archive her feelings in the form of diary, which she used to write for BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) Urdu Service. At the age of 13, she
is selected among four other inspiring girls, for the Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu (Netherlands).

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Pakistan, Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani, awarded him National Peace Award, which is her internal recognition of the struggle she showed in the hard times.

Like other several countrymen, Malala Yousufzai, is tired and disheartened of the negative global insight regarding Pakistan. However, no one among us wants such like situations.

Her face is glaring hope for others who want to get better the Pakistan’s image. It can be achieved through many ways, whether in the form a writing or in terms of displaying actions.

She vociferously spoke about the difficulties of life of a girl of the Taliban era. She inked her feelings about the blatant activities of Taliban while dealing with the society. Her words clearly depict the entire picture of the tragic regime.

As a child of Swat Valley, it is not easy to speak about the horrors they come across in their routine lives. Education is the tool that gives them a sense of awareness about their rights. The women will be eternally silenced if this right is being taken

She failed to understand why Taliban were used to burn their schools and stopped them from getting education. However, she explored her deep feelings, and finally shared with the entire world.

Apart from her efforts for promoting women’s education, her determination alone is something to get inspiration from. It is a single voice, a thin effort, but a strong belief to change the fate of the country. Malala’s struggle proved that time is not far
away when Pakistan will be, once again, famous for its culture, thriving tourism, industries and genius minds in the world.
