The youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has a few tricks up her sleeve, quite literally.

Malala displayed her newly-acquired skills on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And while at first it seemed Malala’s trick had gone wrong as she incorrectly guessed Colbert’s card, but before long it became evident that she knew exactly what she was doing.

Colbert did a great job keeping up with Malala, but she clearly stole the show once again. The 18-year-old’s card trick had everyone in fits, including Stephen who aptly ended the segment saying, “Her name is Malala Yousafzai and she’s appearing at Caesar’s Palace.”

    Of course. She is not bold enough to live in Pakistan. Taliban attacked APS and none of those 100s of students are thinking of leaving Pakistan. They are courageous enough to go back to the same school where they were attacked. Can Malala do that?Recommend

    Look at yourself in the mirror before you criticize… Do you have enough humanity to forgive those who try to take your life away at a young age?
    My guess is no… And there ends or conversation because you don’t have any right to say anything from there on in.Recommend

    She cannot speak of Kashmir or Burma neither Palestine. She can speak for refugees which directly attack Saudia but which attack non-Muslims she is silent about it. So many more things she cannot do like writing books be herself and nor taking help of Islam haters etc. etc,. the list is too long.Recommend

    What she can’t do? Here is a list:

    She can’t understand why the West highlights her and has never recognized heroes like Edhi, Burnee, Aitzaz Hasan, and many who will portray Pakistani society in a positive light.
    She can’t make out the difference between right wing racists who highlight her cause to demonize a particular race of people.
    She does not realize how racists use her story to bully Pakistanis and pretty much anyone whos brown.

    Of course she can’t figure all these things out, one needs to think critically to be able to realize these things. Recommend

    She is pride of Pukhtuns if not all Pakistanis. She is amazing girl. My grand daughter Kayley bought her book and tells me Malala is her role model.Recommend

    She gained fame. And she could have done SO MUCH for Pakistan by staying here and inviting people to meet her here in Pakistan. She is much more than a celebrity. But it’s in the blood of Pakistanis to forget Pakistan once they step outside.Recommend
