KURAGH (CHITRAL), Oct 30: Anything that happens once should not happen again, and whatever happens now won’t be repeated. Repeating this sentence in my imaginations, I tried to console my mind and convince myself to pick up a pen.
The fear still wanders in my soul, as here a girl is never secure if she has command over herself to speak the truth. In this country, any empowered girl can be the next Malala. Every individual in this country is well aware of the appalling event that took place recently. An attempt was made to silence Malala Yousufzai, the ambassador of peace and an activist aged only 14 years, for what she deserves to be praised. Yet the Pakistani government is busy in opposing the events without taking actions is another paradox. The law and order situation is ruffled whose explicit evidence is the very recent event.
The most frequently asked question among the youth girls is, of course, why should we suffer in this way? Why Malala suffers? Is it our fault to claim our due rights as a citizen of a state? The answer of the questions why Malala suffers is very clear. She suffers because she fought for peace and freedom. She suffers because she wants her identity more likely she suffers because she focuses female education. She states: “I want to see the people of Pakistan educated, employed and given their rights”. By the critical analysis of the above statement and the incident of Malala it becomes clear that in the context of Pakistan a girl has to suffer for her dreams. She has to repay if she wishes to see an educated nation. A woman has to compensate if she wants to see her people free from the clutch of poverty. It is a reality that many centuries back the girl’s activities were restricted only to their houses. They had to behave like little ladies and had to sit in houses stitching something. Interestingly they were happy with their lives because they were adjusted with that life style. Today in 21ist century no one can imagine for a girl to sit inside. For the progress of any state the women and men have to move hand in hand. The state of mentality as mentioned above is still prevalent in Pakistan because it is run by ruffians. The aliens and their agents are conspiring to break Pakistan in the name of Islam. But if still Pakistan is alive it is because of people like Malala who devote their life for their country. Though Malala is a young girl, after the attack, she made headlines the world over. Her name is still in the headlines on electronic and print media. The young Malala suffered indeed, yet the battle of women’s right to education has been largely won. Today everyone with no fear is ready to encounter the so-called Taliban.
We have undergone fire, no more! The bizarre has now reached its climax, perhaps this is the last and end point. Perhaps the next morning will arise with a new dawn of prosperity and attainment. If it really happens all the credit goes to Malala because her event according to me is an unplanned revolution that diverted the way of thinking of Pakistanis. Malala got her life back and till she recovers completely let’s hope Pakistan is in a day’s journey to renaissance. Zindabad Pakistan
