Every one is talking about how sad and evil it is that Malala Yousef Zai has been shot, TV, social media, and politicians no one wants to stay behind in their show of sorrow and anger, This whole story is disturbing, and it grieved me too, however unlike our politician my mind keep asking me one obvious question, that how come no body is holding responsible any one else, except the attackers..(.Yes they are responsible for their act.!.. when they are already known for their brutality)… Our government and decade old international efforts are proved useless to control them or their followers, so what gives us this peace of mind and freedom to express our objection on their savageness and be treated like humans , we are forgetting that nothing is changed about them, they never been captured or punished in our recent history so why put a young dependent child in the way of sheer danger.
Terrorism is the biggest reality of every child who is growing up in Pakistan, which made them more sensitive, and mature beyond their years…Malalah is a good example of a child’s innocence, a blossoming spirit, which naturally all kids bring with them., but as they live in a real not so kind World they are told to be careful and not take unnecessary risks.. however in Malala’s case one would think , her family made a wrong choice to let her name get public after her blog which She wrote, no matter how special we feel when our kids show their spark and we can see our dreams fulfilled by them, …. but an enthusiastic child can not realize the extent of them being the spokes person of so many misrepresented and suffocated,…. International media used her brilliance to make their point, at the beginning it was a private blog in 2009 for BBC Urdu, a story of every child here, peace nomination and repeated use of her public-figure status in front of cameras made her even more vulnerable than other kids in Swat. Her openly public appearances at the face of most dangerous enemy is pure negligence on her community’s part… Kids may want to say so many things but a family, a community’s job is to protect them as long they are in our guardianship,… every wish should not be granted… no matter how innocent it is… we should teach them to take a path of safety, because a spirited young person deserves to live longer !. We all know how many human rights are being violated in our country every day, but one should not let our children be baits to a savage enemy, who have no heart or soul to see better or to have compassion…
I hope and pray that She gets justice and health both to make a real difference, She is being used once again to make media appearances and repeated statements from the politicians which She thought were lazy! ( lets see if they show some work to make her happy this time)
