    Default Taliban gunmen shoot 14-year-old girl over activism for education in volatile Pakistan region

    MINGORA, Pakistan — Fourteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai was admired across a battle-scarred region of Pakistan for exposing the Taliban’s atrocities and advocating for girls’ education in the face of religious extremists. On Tuesday, the Taliban nearly killed her to quiet her message.
    A gunman walked up to a bus taking children home from school in the volatile northern Swat Valley and shot Malala in the head and neck. Another girl on the bus was also wounded.

    The young activist was airlifted by helicopter to a military hospital in the frontier city of Peshawar. A doctor in the city of Mingora, Tariq Mohammad, said her wounds weren’t life-threatening, but a provincial information minister said after a medical board examined the girl that the next few days would be crucial.
    Malala began writing a blog when she was just 11 under the pseudonym Gul Makai for the BBC about life under the Taliban, and began speaking out publicly in 2009 about the need for girls’ education — which the Taliban strongly opposes. The extremist movement was quick to claim responsibility for shooting her.
    “This was a new chapter of obscenity, and we have to finish this chapter,” Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan by telephone.
    The shooting provoked outrage across the country, angering Pakistanis who have seen a succession of stories about violence against women by the Taliban.
    “This attack cannot scare us nor the courageous Malala. This cowardly act cannot deter Malala to give up her efforts,” said Azizul Hasan, one of the girl’s cousins.
    Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf condemned the attack and called her a daughter of Pakistan. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland called the shooting “barbaric” and “cowardly.”
    Leila Zerrougui, the U.N. special representative for children in armed conflict, condemned the attack “in the harshest terms.” ‘’Education is a fundamental right for all children,” she said in a statement. The Taliban “must respect the right to education of all children, including girls, to go to school and live in peace.”
    The attack displayed the viciousness of Islamic militants in the Swat Valley, where the military conducted a major operation in 2009 to clear out insurgents, and a reminder of the challenges the government faces in keeping the area free of militant influence.
    In her BBC blog, Malala wrote about not wearing her uniform to school after officials warned it might attract the Taliban’s attention, and how many other students moved out of the valley after the Taliban issued an edict banning girls from school. She wrote about the Taliban movement had kept her family from going out after sunset.
    While chairing a children’s assembly supported by UNICEF in the valley last year, the then-13-year-old championed a greater role for young people.
    “Girl members play an active role,” she said, according to an article on the U.N. organization’s website. “We have highlighted important issues concerning children, especially promoting girls’ education in Swat.”
    She was nominated last year for the International Children’s Peace Prize, which is organized by the Dutch organization KidsRights to highlight the work of children around the world.


    apparently this is now big news in the West and among the Secular "Muslim" hypocrites as it gives them another stick to beat on Shariah law.Can anybody residing in Pakistan actually tell us what really happend?

    Anyone would think it was a malicious act carried out to bring hatred on the Taliban,after all The NaPak Army have done nothing but Amalulsalih for NWFP.

    I love watching you guys trying to work out how you feel about something until you've decided how al-walaa-wa'l-baraa applies.

    Por ejemplo: abu hannah has just suggested that it might be an act carried out by the Pakistani military to inspire hatred against the Taliban. If they claim it, abu hannah will decide that actually, she deserved to die. Guaranteed. If they claim it, she deserved it. If they deny, it's a false flag. It must be wonderful to live such simple lives. You share it with North Koreans.
