A few years ago, I was at the book shop and couldn’t resist the temptation to grab this book and start reading it straightway. It was my first contact with Pakistani people and their suffering in the hands of the Taliban, specially women. When I saw the sad episode of Malala Yousafzai in the news I had to write about it and also share with my readers that there are people who fight to change this situation. Express our indignation to what happened to young Malala might be a starting point to put an end to it. She refused to keep silent and set an example to us all. I would like to recommend some sites for more information http://www.gregmortenson.com/, http://www.threecupsoftea.com/, http://www.ikat.org/ and also http://www.stonesintoschools.com/. I hope you enjoy the books as much as I did and Pakistani girls have the chance to attend school as it is their right.

She wants to be a doctor, her dearest ambition is to carry on her studies and help to ensure that every girl has the right to attend school in her country. Malala sets an example to us all on not to silence in the face of injustice. Unfortunately, she almost lost her life because of her ideas. The Pakistani girl was cowardly shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in Swat. She is currently in a serious condition and is being seen by doctors at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. Are Pakistani girls destined to have denied their rights to education?
