Malala urges Imran Khan to put pressure on Taliban for girls’ education despite Pakistan harboured Taliban which shot her in the head

Malala Yousafzai, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in Britain, says she is concerned that the Taliban will not permanently deprive girls of education like their previous government.

Recalling that she had also written a letter to PM Imran in this regard and to ensure female education, Malala said she was still awaiting a reply.

In an exclusive interview with Pakistan’s Dawn Television, Malala Yousafzai said that in all Muslim countries, girls have the right to education and women have the right to work and politics, and the Taliban should allow girls to go to school as soon as possible.

“It is Pakistan’s responsibility to stand up for girls ‘education [in Afghanistan], I hope Imran Khan will take this issue of girls’ education responsibly and put pressure on the Taliban to let girls go to school and Give women rights. ”

Malala Yousafzai says the leaders of Muslim countries, the international community, the G-20 and the G-7 need to play their part in educating girls in Afghanistan.

Malala Yousafzai, along with two other Afghan women, Zarqa Yaftali and Shahrzad Akbar, the former head of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission, have launched an online campaign to educate Afghan girls for about 10 days.

The United Nations, including Amnesty International, has called on the Taliban to educate girls and allow women to work. The Taliban say they are planning to open girls’ middle schools, but after a month and a half, they have not been able to get girls to go to school.

Textbooks showing Malala Yousafzai as ‘important personality’ seized

Ironically, Pakistani authorities in July this year had seized textbooks that listed Malala Yousafzai as an ‘important personality’, apparently for her ‘controversial views’ on Islam.

The All-Pakistan Private Schools Federation had even decided to launch a documentary to ‘expose’ her before the youth. The president of the organisation, Kashif Mirza, said, “Through this documentary film ‘I am not Malala’, we will tell 20 million students in 200,000 private schools across the country about her controversial views on Islam, marriage, pursuing of Western agenda.”

“The idea behind this is we want to expose Malala among the youth so they do not get impressed by her so-called story of struggle for women rights,” he had said at a press conference.

Malala criticized for ignoring atrocities by Taliban

The Pakistani activist was criticized heavily for staying mum after the Taliban had taken over Afghanistan and had stepped up atrocities against women.
