The youngest peace nobel achiever Malala Yusafzai is getting threats from the Talibans. The Pakistani Taliban or Jamaat ul Ahrar – posted its response to the Malala’s winning of Nobel on Twitter late Saturday.
“Characters like Malala should know that we are not deterred by propaganda of [non-believers]. We have prepared sharp and shiny knives for the enemy of Islam,” tweeted spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan.
The mainstream TTP or Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, the umbrella organization for over a dozen groups, has not commented on Malala’s achievement.
At the age of 17 what Malala has done is not really easy. She decided to stand up against the Taliban and that is also while facing negligence from her own people. She was also shot in the head and in the neck in 2012 by Taliban supporters for promoting education for Pakistani girls and after that what she has done is incredible at her age. As they say “the secret of getting ahead is getting started”.
She has traveled the world to spread the message of the importance of education, she received more than $250,000 dollar from famous personalities around the world, like President Obama, Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, Hillary Clinton to continue her noble mission.
She is known for fighting, for human rights for women education, especially in her native Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school.
She is the second Pakistani to receive a Nobel Prize, Abdus Salam the Physics laureate who achieved it in 1979 and the only Pakistani winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Besides the Nobel, she has achieved different awards and recognitions from different countries and universities.
But the threat proves that her fight has not been finished yet and she has a long way to go. Because if you can dream it, you can do it, and as for the negative forces that try to hold you back “expect the problems and eat them as your breakfast”.
