PDF Malala Yousafzai Ý Ý I Am Malala The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was

I come from a country that was created at midnight When I almost died it was just after middayWhen the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan one girl spoke out Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an educationOn Tuesday October 9 2012 when she was fifteen she almost paid the ultimate price She was shot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school and few expected her to survive Instead Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York At sixteen she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism of the fight for girls' education of a father who himself a school owner championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons

    Reading this book reminded me of how much I take for granted every day Freedom of speech Freedom of religion The freedom to go to the store without needing a male escort And the ability to get an education regardless of genderI was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to childrenMalala who is now 16 is an outspoken advocate for girls to have the same right to go to school as boys In her native Pakistan she lost that ability when the Taliban took over I was 10 when the Taliban came to our valley It seemed to us that the Taliban arrived in the night just like vampires They appeared in groups armed with knives and Kalashnikovs They looked so dark and dirty and that my father's friend described them as 'people deprived of baths and barbers'The Taliban started bombing schools and decreed that girls couldn't get an education Malala's father was a school principal and encouraged her to speak out She was only 15 at the time but threats were made against her and her family And in October 2012 when she was riding the school bus with her friends a man with a gun climbed aboard the vehicle and shot Malala in the headAmazingly Malala survived the bullet and was able to recover She and her family currently live in England but Malala writes about how much she misses her home country and wishes she could return to be with her friends Her graciousness was such that she did not wish revenge on her attacker and instead prays for peaceI thank Allah for the hardworking doctors for my recovery and for sending us to this world where we may struggle for our survival Some people choose good ways and some choose bad ways One person's bullet hit me It swelled my brain stole my hearing and cut the nerve of my left face in the space of a second And after that one second there were millions of people praying for my life and talented doctors who gave me my body back I was a good girl In my heart I had only the desire to help peopleMalala's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring I admire her courage and her tenacity and also hope that her country will one day find peace Why are we Muslims fighting with each other? We should focus on practical issues We have so many people in our country who are illiterate and many women have no education at all We live in a place where schools are blown up We have no reliable electricity supply Not a single day passes without the killing of at least one PakistaniThe book is lovingly written and I also appreciated her stories about the history of Pakistan and her people the Pashtuns While reading the book I realized that I knew about the history of other countries in the region such as Afghanistan Iran and India than I did about Pakistan and it was very informative I would highly recommend the book to anyone interested in women's rights current events history or inspirational memoirsToday we all know education is our basic right Not just in the West Islam too has given us this right Islam says every girl and every boy should go to school In the Quran it is written God wants us to have knowledge He wants us to know why the sky is blue and about oceans and stars The Taliban could take our pens and books but they couldn't stop our minds from thinkingUpdate October 2014I was thrilled to hear that Malala had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work I have recommended this book to numerous people in the past year and am still amazed by her courage Three cheers for Malala
