Malala up for Nobel Peace Prize

Dawn: OSLO: Malala Yousafzai is amongst those known to be nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, as the deadline expired on Friday.

This year’s award will be announced in early October, but speculation was already underway as the deadline for nominations ran out on February 1.

Fifteen-year-old Malala was shot by Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) gunmen at point blank range as she travelled on a bus to school on October 9, targeted for promoting girls’ education.

She has since become an internationally recognised symbol of opposition to the Taliban’s drive to deny women education, and against religious extremism.

“A prize to Malala would not only be timely and fitting with a line of awards to champions of human rights and democracy, but also … would set both children and education on the peace and conflict agenda,” said the head of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo, Kristian Berg Harpviken.

  1. Malalla Yousufzai is used by the CIA, Pakistan’s corrupt Govt and Kabul’s rogue regime as a child soldier to carryout their propaganda work against their Taliban ‘enemies’ who is at war with them against occupation. Her parents foolishly sacrificed their daughter for fame and money or whatever reason. The result is another of our daughters is attacked. It could be by Taliban or it could be by their own mercenary gang to tarnish Taliban. End result is yet another life. She was used as a pawn in the dirty war of occupation.

    If Taliban attacked her because she attended school then there were many who were attending the same school along with her … why didn’t they shoot all of them … Why only her? This is the way Americans work … They brought an idol and shot her or got her shot …. they killed their own Ambassador to kill Zia-ul Haq. They killed 3000 of their own people in the Twin Towers on 911 to achieve their goals. Don’t be fooled when they say … ‘Taliban admitted” or Osama admitted. or Khalid Sheik Admitted.

    The commotion is too high all over the world for this child soldier … but when Afia Siddeeqi was tortured and her children were killed and prisoned many of our hypocrites didn’t have a voice to cry … when hundreds of Malallas are killed by drones on daily basis no tears are shed … no protests, no songs in dedication to them … but for the child’s soldier of CIA there is so much of sympathy ..

    British and American troops have killed and wounded thousands of Afghan men, women and CHILDREN. Its not just the Taliban doing all the killing of civilians is it? Taliban have said she was shot for promoting ‘Western thinking’ Because Taliban thinking is so much more enlightened and attractive. Yes, we have gangs and we have drugs. Sin and depravity, vice and violence. We have whole subcultures with no future, and no hope. But you actively seek to destroy those with hope, and condemn people to have no future. What about the other innocent people shot by US and British soldiers? And those in Palestine? Or is it cruel only when Taliban does it? This girl is being used by the British to keep the unwinnable war in Afghanistan going. Are British troops really dying so that girls can go to school in Afghanistan?

    The expenses will be borne by the government of Pakistan. By the way even if NHS has paid, it will be far less than spent on killing innocents in Afghanistan/Iraq/Libya in a single day!
    I am praying for this brave young lady!! People like her change our world for the better! Sad that so many air thief benefit parasites have felt it was necessary to write negative comments about her using our medical facilities. I feel that never have our Doctor’s and hospitals had the privilege of treating a finer human being! We should all be proud that we can offer help to her!

I can tell you all that Pakistan government is paying for her treatment and further more that this brave daughter of Pakistan will not claim asylum nor her family she will b returning to Pakistan.
    The UK tax payer is not paying for her treatment, the Dubai Govt paid for her transfer and the Pakistani government is paying her medical bills.
