Tragic stories.. and Malala.

University is overwhelming. Lots of work, pressure, stress, and blah. But the most important thing right now is prayers for Malala Yousafzai.  She needs our sincerest prayers so that she can fully recover quickly inshaAllah.

I request each and everyone of you to do make an effort to pray for this brave girl – the heart of Pakistan. Also, I have received a lot of messages and comments through this blog that praised her bravery and strength to fight against all odds. I wish I can show her your love and support. Thanks to each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart.

‘Dartay hain bandooqon walay ek nehatti larki say,
Phailay hain himmat kay ujalay ek nehatti larki say.’

Children’s rights activist – Malala Yousafzai

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.
