Renowned activist for women education Malala Yousafzai has successfully been accepted to Oxford University for undergraduate studies after acquiring her A-level result.

Yousafzai recently commenced her studies at the prestigious Oxford University – five years from the day that she was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls’ education.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate tweeted last week, saying, “5 years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education. Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford.”

However, all hell broke lose when the 2o-year-old  was spotted wearing a jeans and top with her head covered with a dupatta.

Some bashed Malala for her ‘shocking’ choice of wardrobe.

While some went as low as calling her a foreign conspiracy once again, merely on her dressing, others came out in her support.

What makes us scratch our heads is the fact that a woman is still judged on her wardrobe in this time and age.

    Nothing about her attire as it’s her own choice. But she certainly found a shortcut to get an Oxford admission while commoners are still studying hard and waiting in Que’s to get into Oxford.Recommend

    I personally dont have any right to comment on what or what not she wears. Her choice. But i look at her and then think of students in peshawer attack who still go to the same school even after they got shot. Why only her? There are more brave pakistanis out there, brave army soldiers who get martyred in the path of proctecting our nation. So many heros who deserve appreciation. Thats the only thing i have a problem with. Recommend

    Evolution missed some parts of the world, where people still think like cave dwelling neanderthals. An individual’s choice in clothing is his/her prerogative and it does not take anything away from their character and essence.

    The killing of people like Qandeel Baloch and other stage actors indicate that in Pakistan people have a long way to go in understanding, respecting and promoting personal liberties.Recommend

    Whatever she wears and wherever she lives is fine with me. But do I also have aright to make a life choice like she has? I hate the Taliban but I do not accept Malala as a national heroine or deserving of the Nobel prize. Now why should I be lynched for this? Recommend
