SWAT: The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) which attacked National Award Peace winner Malala Yousafzai on Tuesday have said that they will target her again if she survives because she was a “secular-minded lady”.

A TTP spokesperson told The Express Tribune that this was a warning for all youngsters who were involved in similar activites and added that they will be targeted if they do not stop.

Malala was injured along with two other women when Taliban gunmen opened fire on a bus in Swat.

Yousufzai, who studies at Khushal Public School, was on her way home when the vehicle came under attack on Haji Baba Road. One of the other injured has been identified as Shazia and sources say the third was a teacher.

Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said his group was behind the shooting.

“She was pro-West, she was speaking against Taliban and she was calling President Obama her idol,” Ehsan said by telephone from an undisclosed location.

“She was young but she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas,” he said, referring the main ethnic group in northwest Pakistan and southern and eastern Afghanistan.

DPO Swat Rasool Shah said that a search operation has been initiated in the area and a number of suspects have been arrested.

Malala was shifted to Saidu Sharif Medical Complex in Mingora immediately after the incident and later she was moved to Peshawar in an Army helicopter.

Doctors at the Saidu Sharif Medical Complex said that Malala was out of danger after the bullet penetrated her skull but missed her brain.

“A bullet struck her head, but the brain is safe,” said Dr Taj Mohammed.

“She is out of danger,” he added.

Dr Laal Noor, from the same hospital, confirmed that the bullet broke her skull but missed her brain.

“The bullet struck her skull and came out on the other side and hit her shoulder,” he told AFP.

After getting done with Malala’s check-up, the doctors said that she might be sent abroad for treatment.

As the news made rounds, hundreds of people flocked outside the hospital, willing to donate blood to Malala.

Two bullets hit Malala — one in the head and another between the neck and chest.

Malala’s friend, Shazia, while narrating the incident to Express News said, ”When we were coming back from school, unidenfitied men approached our bus and asked us to identify Malala, when we told him, he opened fire.”

The Government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has taken a notice of the incident.

Hailing from Mingora, the 14-year-old Malala struggled for restoring peace in Swat and education for girls in the region for which she was awarded the National Peace Award by former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.

When the Taliban had banned education for females in the district, she kept a diary for the British Broadcasting Corporation and wrote about the misdeeds of militants.

Yousufzai also remained a speaker for the Child Assembly in Swat, which works for child rights in the district. Later on, she was awarded the first National Peace Award by the government of Pakistan on December 19, 2011 for rendering courageous services to promote peace during the mayhem.

How could you possibly hold someone responsible when you haven’t even elected him as your representative as well as consistently FAIL to mention names you have elected to represent yourselves….I won’t be surprised if you woke up one morning and found your other half has given up on you and you will hold Imran Khan & PTI responsible for that too ….

Take back your refugees, no where else would they find shelter for free and enjoy free healthcare, free education and tax free businesses.
    Most of this anarchy is due to the fact that millions of people are coming back & forth illegally to this country. You cannot hope to have peace in this region unless this border gets sealed as all the criminals can prop up and then hide on either side of uncontrolled parts.

    It was most distressing to know about this terrible incident. Malala Yousafzai is a ray of hope in our darkening world. May she recover quickly and continue to have the strength to carry on with her mission to promote an educated and tolerant society in Pakistan. She is so young and yet so full of high aspirations; may she never lose hope and may God Almighty protect her from the cowardly attacks of those who are making our country a dangerous and barbaric place.

    The blasting of schools, harsh punishments and barbaric behaviour is west and government propaganda.

    Can any one tell great king khan and his fan club that peace talks and peace agreements made in 2004 at shakai, 2005 sararogha, 2006 miramsha and 2007 at swat failed miserably by violations from taliban side as their only objective is to impose their version of sharia and they have no respect of human life…Khan has alraedy lost all his respect in my view due to his Pro Mulla, Pro Taliban and Pro Alqaeda stance and he stands for pro regressive, intolerant and fanatic religiious right wing politics in which the brave girl like Malala has no chance to survive let alone express her self and live a life as a free decent human being.

Also less than 10,000 Soldiers are in the Whole region of Swat so how come they are covering every inch????. Also all of my Pukhtoon friends mock the women who are not in Hijab and in Burqa and make fun of these women and call these women as immoral and all type of bad names so tell me Army is responsible for this Mindset or there is something in the Pukhtoon culture that led to this type of behavior???.

    What more do you need to open your eyes and see the cancer that is quickly eating away the fabric of your nation?
    Are you not ashamed to stand helplessly and watch as your sons and daughters are being slaughtered by this barbarians?
    What more does it take for you to break away the chains of submission and fight against the taliban and everyone who supports them?
    Dont you understand that by being silent, you are actually aiding these cave men in taking you back to the stone age?
    Despite being an Indian, it pains when a brave young girl is shot at just for upholding her fundamental right as a human being.

    Greetings from North America- yeah, the Great Satan. Hope you got your new iPhone 5s.

    If you are a supporter of suicide bombings and would allow your children to die to support your cause, may I suggest you allow them to live; and then in turn take your own life. If you are a male and live in fear that the female will some day become your equal- take your life now, because that day is coming.

    Oppression is a sign of weakness. The man who commands a woman to wear a scarf or burka against her will is weak. If the woman chooses to, that is her right.

    Killing a child for any reason, an unarmed person, or an innocent person is a cowardly act. We have technology on our side. I hope we can develop nukes that can systematically take these cowards to their 12 virgins as quickly as possible.

Before the 15th century many Afghans were Nomads and since they do not farm or grow anything so they resorted to looting the people of other regions and of course when Afghan looted the Golden Temple for Gold Sikhs were all unarmed. When Abdali attacked regions of Punjab then he killed all the local kings and he did not spared the Muslims until Ranjit Singh defeated him in a bad manner.. Still there is a famous saying in Punjab that ” Jeera wi labbay kha lao ajjay. Abdali avey ga, sub kuch lai jaiyega ga tai kakh wi nai chaddi gaIn English ” Whatever bread you have eat it today and dont store it for tomorrow otherwise it is obvious that Abdali will loot you until the next day.and will not spare anyone.

Time has come for a common Pakistani to raise their voice against these cowards who have killed thousands of innocents in cold blood, beheaded soldiers and now vowing to kill a small child because she wants to study further. Rallies and protests should be held all over Pakistan against TTP to condemn this incident. I am sure Imran Khan, Nawaz Sharif, PPP and religious party leaders will not lead the protests fearing their lives but common people should hold rallies in their own areas and give a strong message to TTP that enough is enough and any more killings and cowardly attacks will not be tolerated. These protests will also boost up the military morale to take action against the TTP who have so far not launched any decisive operation against them.

    @ khurram awan
    First of all, you are advising your friend from manhattan to visit Afghan history before 15th century and then you mention ABDALI who was in 18th century. I think you need to visit history books first.
    Secondly Afghanistan at that time was huge ( not in it’s present shape ) it did had a vast agricultural land in the north , in the south and the east ( Peshawar ),
    Third the afghans were known as BUTSHAKAN not as temple looters and only went to India
    `to convert your forefathers to Islam .
    Fourth if ABDALI was a looter than why name weapons with his name.
    Fifth you have mentioned Ranjit Singh defeat but you forgot the PANIPAT ( where the Sikhs were slaughtering you and you called ABDALI for help).
    There is a long list of answers for you but I cut it short by saying that why don’t you call your forefathers cowards who could not defend their land before you calling ABDALI aggressor.

My beliefs are my own and i do not go around killing people to believe in what i believe in. I do not force others to do what i do. to think what i think.

    I am an average Pakistani with a moderate salary and all i can say to you is keep trying. We (Pakistanis) will not let you win. We are much stronger than you as a nation, in terms of education, in terms of “dunya” and “huqooq-ul-ibad”

    Ironically, the ideology you use to raise torches and burn our country, will be the cause of your own destruction. this is the first time ever ive written in a newspaper comment section and i hope someone from your pathetic group reads this… and what you have done to this poor girl has prompted me to make a decision.

    I will start patrolling my neighborhood in the night and where ever i find any traces of you i will destroy them. Soon when i can show that if i can clean my neighborhood, so can everyone else.

    I have no hope from my government, from my military, from my local imams.

    I will find you, and i will kill you. Kill you all. ;)

    We will not rest until your defaming of our religion will end and your existence obliterated.

    (now i take back all what i said about killing you (for now) and other traceable reasons & deny my intentions publicly)… but this is the road you are traveling and where you will end.

    we will not stand by and watch you slaughter our Shia, Barelvi, Ismaili, Bohri, qadiani, Hindu, Christian, and Parsi countrymen.

    The brutal murders and violence by the Taliban show no signs of abating. Suddenly, they throw a bomb here or a grenade there in crowded places, killing and maiming people, or they resort to firearms to shoot as they like. But what is not disclosed to our Pakistani people is that these Taliban have not appeared suddenly from some unknown source; in fact they have been in the making for decades in the political anarchy that has prevailed in Pakistan. The major players in this game have been Pakistani politicians and religious leaders (or ringleaders ) of religious parties like the Jamaat-e-Islami, for instance, who have misused the name of Islam for their political ends and have misled the vast majority of Pakistani people that a pure Islam was being re-introduced.

    Thus the field was open for such ‘mujahiddin of Islam’ and the custodians of mosques to brainwash common people into believing that the dawn of Islamic rejuvenation was just around the corner. The Islamisation programme by the sadistic dictator General Zia-ul-Haq was a natural growth of that process that had started long ago. That process had matured and has been showing its results in the shape of sectarian versions of Islam, violence against religious minorities (Ahmadis, Christians, Shias, Hindus, etc.), where the ‘pure’ Muslims, the mujahiddin and the Taliban, are doing Allah’s work and fiery clerics spouting their venom against fellow human beings.

    Can these forces be stopped by an official decree or praying for peace? The answer is No. Much has gone wrong in Pakistan in the name of Islam. It will take much more than pious wishes and prayers to remove the evil forces that are terrorising the people of Pakistan.

    infact we as a nation has loss our centeral point, to considers some one as a hero……in past the measurement was only one and that was ISLAM, any person who died for islam, worked for islam was our hero, for example Muhammad bin qasim is our hero while raja dahir is our enemy in history…..think it from other side raja dahir is the hero for indian and non muslims. so the center point was islam. now come to the point TALIBAN are two types one are pakistani taliban and others are american taliban. both are not working or fighting for islam, one group work for pakistan and the other working for america, so this point is clear that taliban is not our heroes. and now MALALA, infact she is too small to manage to fight for what??? what is her goals for life, so what she is doing? what she says she dont know…beacause she dont know about idealogy?? she don`t know clashes of civilization, interest of nations?? for all these some one have to be full aware of what is good or bad?? what is in favour and whati is aginst??? she said what her father advised, and her father do what the authentic (USA OR PAKISTANI) leader guide him to do. just an award wining will not make her mother tresa or Fatima jinnah. she will have to struggle head to toe to leave her name in the heart of people.Recommend

    Go complain to Allah, it is HE who has given so much attention to Malala. It is HE who decides who gets fame and who gets zilat.

    Allah has decided Taliban deserve Zilat. They just dont know it.

    The taliban are men that are ignorant, stupid men, that are afraid that women might learn to read the holy koran and find out that the koran does not say women have to stay uneducated and ignorant like the men would like them to be so they can treat women as slaves. Yes the taliban should be afraid of women being educated. They will kick the mens butts and they will feel what women are feeling today. If it was up to me I would castrate every one of those taliban men, bury them and have all the girls stone them, to show them how it feels.
