hellodrsoul | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend Look at the face of Malala. She has a distorted face because she raised her voice against the morons. I don't understand why people start comparing Malala with other women. They are jealous of her? Do they think she is ''enjoying'' this face of her? what are they implying? Are they ready to make their daughters meet the fate of Malala?
