Many people have landed on this blog for the update on Malala Yousafzai who is a Children’s rights activist hailing from Mingora, Swat. There is a post on my blog which has some links to the videos about her that were published in NYtimes.
Malala Yousafzai is the first Pakistani child who has been nominated for the Peace award on Universal children’s day. This year a total of five children have been nominated from around the globe and Malala is the only one from Pakistan.
We truly salute your efforts, Malala. May you continue to work for the betterment of Pakistan and for the children who are denied the basic right to education. Pakistan needs people like you.
