Fourteen Year-Old Pakistani Girl Shows What the Taliban Really Are

Malala At Age 11

Ever since the Taliban shut down her school, Malala Yousafzai from the Swat territory of Pakistan has been campaigning against the Taliban. She was just eleven years old when she started writing a blog for the BBC’s Urdu channel, telling the world what it was like to live under the yoke of the Taliban.

In 2007, when they seized control of Swat and the other border areas in Northern Pakistan after a ‘peace’ agreement with the government, they began a systematic reign of terror that included strict Sharia Law, mass executions, and the closing down of all centres of education for girls. All this in the name of Allah!

Typical Taliban Execution

Then one small girl of eleven began writing a diary of events as they happened under the Taliban. Her writings covered the sufferings of the people under the sadistic regime of the Taliban, and were picked up by the BBC and put into a blog.

Malala Receives Pakistan’s Peace Prize

She soon became famous, and after the insurgents were driven out of Swat by the Pakistan Army in 2009, she was given the highest civilian award by the government and was nominated for an international peace award for child activists. She had always written under the pseudonym Gul Makai, but when she received the award her real name came out. From that day the Taliban were out for vengeance.

Now aged fourteen, they finally caught up with her yesterday, and although details are not clear, a Taliban gunman shot her in the head, it is thought as she was about to board a school bus. The man even asked for her by name so there is no doubt she was the target.

Ehsanullah Ehsan – Taliban Spokesman

A spokesman for the Taliban, Ehsanullah Ehsan has already made public the fact that his group were responsible. Making a statement via telephone he said: “She was pro-West, she was speaking against the Taliban and she was calling President Obama her idol…….She was young but she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas.” The Pashtun area of Pakistan is where most of the Taliban fighters come from.

On the subject of the attack, the Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said: “We have to fight the mindset that is involved in this. We have to condemn it… Malala is like my daughter, and yours too. If that mindset prevails, then whose daughter would be safe?”

My only answer to that Raja is: “Actions speak louder than words my son”! So don’t just sit in your fancy chair pontificating about it, get your army organized and go after the bastards!

Malala On Her Way To Hospital

Although shot in the head, and some reports say also in the neck, encouraging reports are now coming from the hospital to say she seems to be out of danger. There can be little doubt that if she comes out of this episode successfully, the Taliban, by their vicious sadistic act will have created a world renowned  figure capable of doing their cause great harm. It can only be hoped that this brave young girl lives and is able to testify to the world all about the sadistic excesses of this greatly feared group of insurgents, and in particular the incompetent and lazy Pakistan government who have done nothing positive to deal with the Taliban.

All she wanted to do is be allowed to go to school and fulfil her dream of studying law and entering politics, but in the Taliban mind that is a death sentence. So much for the love of Allah and his prophet Mohammed!!!!

Roy.
