how and why Malala became a campaigner so young; the role and opinion of Tor Pekai her mother who was illiterate; and her two younger brothers Kushal and Atal raised in a culture that favours boys and men but perpetually in the shadow of their sisterI learned the chronology and a fair bit about Pashtun culture the natural beauty of Swat recent Pakistani political history Taliban tactics and the difficulty of living as a displaced person at home and abroadI discovered that Malala loves Cheesy Wotsits Justin Bieber Ugly Betty styling her hair Twilight halal KFC gently teasing her father highish heels pink and suabbling with the elder of her younger brothers She’s proud of her academic prizes because she earned them but has mixed feelings about the others because they remind her of how much still needs to changeShe comes across as a charming mixture of serious and light hearted mature and child like loyal to her heritage but open to other ideas and influences The perfect example was doing henna hand tattoos using symbols from chemistry and calculus rather than the traditional flowers and butterfliesBut I still don’t feel I really understand the family themselvesWho are Tor Pekai and Ziauddin?Theirs was unusually a love match rather than an arranged marriageTor Pekai may be uneducated and in the background but “ My mother comes from a family of strong women” and Ziauddin always shares information and decisions with her He’s the dreamer; she’s the practical one After Malala had been airlifted to the UK and the family were battling bureaucracy to join her it was Tor Pekai’s threatened hunger strike that got things slowly movingZiauddin apparently overcame a childhood stammer by determination and public speaking He was conscious of his preferential treatment for being a boy particularly in terms of education and felt that was wrong He was briefly radicalised in his youth but going away to college when Benazir Bhutto was PM he discovered “ women who had greater freedom and were not hidden away as in in his own village” That seems insufficient explanation for founding a chain of schools against extraordinary odds and speaking out against governments and terrorists “ It was my grandmother’s faith in my father that gave him the courage to find his own proud path” HmmOne answer to my uestions is the fact that Ziauddin carries a version of Martin Niemöller’s famous poem in his pocket First they came forWhose Voice Whose Truth?The significant biographies will be written decades hence but until then this is an important and readable book and I don’t want to diminish that It is by Malala in conjunction with journalist Christina Lamb The writing can be a little uneven and plodding I sometimes lost track of how old Malala was and it’s not always clear to what extent her thoughts and words are really hers or have been modulated moderated or embroideredMaybe it doesn’t matter When the Islamic studies teacher couldn’t be trusted her father advised “ Learn the literal meaning of the Arabic words; don’t follow his explanations and interpretations Only learn what God says His words are divine messages which you are free to interpret”There’s a fair bit of mythologizing “ My father always said ‘Malala will be free as a bird’ but I wondered how free a daughter could ever be” She was always special the family’s luck changed after her birth omens abound etc “ All children are special to their parents but to my father I was his universe” – he had a wife and two other childrenBut given Malala’s life and stature on the word stage mythologizing is perhaps inevitable and even appropriate ButControversyAlthough feted around the w

Malala Yousafzai ☆ I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban reader

Ot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school and few expected her to survive Instead Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York At sixteen she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the yo These days it seems like our world is a giant game of telephone Any news story or online gossip you hear is hard to believe because it has been skewed so much since it left the source It is refreshing and enlightening to hear a story straight from the source especially on the topic of life in the Middle East which is always uickly demonized in America By experiencing Malala's story it gives a true face to the people of Pakistan who are mostly wanting peace and prosperity not oppression and terrorI highly recommend this book to anyone who only has views of the world from the news and social media Seeing how the war on terror in the Middle East was experienced by a child on the front lines is pretty amazing I thought my teenage drama was hard here in the United States but what Malala and her countrymen and women went through is humbling In fact I think the story of this book can be of value to anyone living today who feels like they are far away from the terror or that they are better than people from other countries For every terrorist there are hundreds of people just like us5 stars all the way let's just hope other books like this stop having to be written because people are being terrorized and having their rights threatened The people that read this and don't take it with a grain of salt the closer we will all be to a better world

doc æ I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban ☆ Malala Yousafzai

I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the TalibanI come from a country that was created at midnight When I almost died it was just after middayWhen the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan one girl spoke out Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an educationOn Tuesday October 9 2012 when she was fifteen she almost paid the ultimate price She was sh We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced Criticism be damned I loved this bookMalala Yousafzai a Pakistani girl was just fifteen years old when the Taliban decided she needed to be taken out That she was too dangerous to be alive That she was radical sacrilegious and so much And what did she do? What was the heinous terrible actions that necessitated her being shot? Education is education We should learn everything and then choose which path to follow Education is neither Eastern nor Western it is human She spoke up for education particularly for girls and was doing such an inspirational job that she became a 'problem'Her father a schoolmaster founded many schools throughout her childhood and he always gave Malala the option to speak up for her right to education And speak up she did She corresponded with newspapers campaigned on the radio and even appeared on television One child one teacher one book one pen can change the world She gave a voice to the ever silenced children especially the girls who were forced to cover up and stay at home To give up their education because it was improperMalala expressed her love for God for her people and for the right to education time and time again When the whole world is silent even one voice becomes powerful And when the Taliban heard of her they decided that she a fifteen year old girl needed to be killedAnd so they tried They shot her in the head on her way to school on October 9th 2012But something happened that they had not calculated she survived And the attempted murder assassination? I think she's important enough to bump this to attempted assassination didn't cow her or put her in her place She survived and she is ready to continue the fight We were scared but our fear was not as strong as our courage In short amazing Truly amazingThis book felt like a honest chat between the author and the world she unashamedly details the poverty the cruelty and the losses that her family and the families around her sufferedBut at the same time she speaks so honestly and fervently about her love for God her country and even for those who attacked out of fear or misguidanceNormally when there is a second author the book begins to feel false as in there's too much influence from the professional writer and that erases all of the personal voice But that was not the case in this oneMalala's felt so incredibly real the way she spoke about her life in Pakistan from her humble beginnings to the success of her father's school and heartbreaking especially when she talked about her freedom being taken away slowly This is a book that should be read by everyone especially the those who oppose her because if you can feel one ounce of love that Malala feels for her country and education then I honestly don't see why anyone would keep fighting it If one man can destroy everything why can't one girl change it?
