Request for prayers.

Today I will beg you people to pray for the recovery  of  Malala Yousafzai, who came under attack  on her way back to home from school ( news here).

Taliban has taken the  responsibility for the attack so far.

According to an other  gal who also got injured besides her but has been recovered, told in a  telly interview that terrorist/ Taliban  first asked who  Malala is,  and then they opened fire straight in her forehead.

Right now she is in a very  severer condition. Government has also allowed her to send abroad for any further treatment.

She is  just 14 years old, a National Peace Award winner for her efforts to motive gals to get education and go to school at the time when Taliban was blowing up schools in Sawat, for  her courage  to speak  up against   them  and  their extremism in her BBC's Urdu  blog Diary of a Pakistani school girl, 2009.

While reading one of her blog's entry, I came across to one of her post" I AM AFRAID" posted on 3rd Jan 2009.

 I had a terrible dream yesterday with military helicopters and the Taleban. I have had such dreams since the launch of the military operation in Swat. My mother made me breakfast and I went off to school. I was afraid going to school because the Taleban had issued an edict banning all girls from attending schools. 

Only 11 students attended the class out of 27. The number decreased because of Taleban's edict. My three friends have shifted to Peshawar, Lahore and Rawalpindi with their families after this edict. 

On my way from school to home I heard a man saying 'I will kill you'. I hastened my pace and after a while I looked back if the man was still coming behind me. But to my utter relief he was talking on his mobile and must have been threatening someone else over the phone. 

Unfortunately, some how same thing happened today.

  15. How terrible and such courage in one so young. And of course she is in my prayers.

  16. I read this story in the newspaper this morning and I thought what a courage to stand up for one's beliefs.
    This is horrible to see men still acting like animals and not allowing people to have their own ideas. I will pray for her and all the other people around the world who are not afraid of fighting for what they believe in and facing for most of them cruelty and hate from others.

  21. This tragedy made the front page of the Kansas City Star. http://www.kansascity.com/2012/10/10/3860354/shooting-of-pakistan-girl-activist.html

  22. This is awful! I'll pray for her!

  23. Activists are too often Peeps who change the world, but do not live to see it! It is why many times in this past year-and-five-months Izdiher, I have admonished you to be SO extra careful, to exercise caution and stay safe.

    Oh, I am so sad to hear first hand of this--and reading that diary--at the end--I wanted more to read, if it would take all afternoon.

    thank you for posting this story which many will not have seen...because we have our own rapes, murders, child molestation of which maybe you do not be aware.

    And the world goes on--to where? I shudder somwtimes, then wake up and say, usually out loud so the devil can hear me: "GOD IS in charge, He will see that everything turns out OK. In the end.
    PEACE, my friend!

  25. Because the admin of this web page is working, no doubt very rapidly it will be famous, due to its feature contents.

  26. I saw this on the news and was so sad! In Islam we believe in both girls and boys being educated and she stood up for her beliefs but the Taliban are terrorists who are not even following the true Islam. I hope and pray she makes a speedy recovery.

  27. I have read the news in our regional paper, it was a front page news and after reading the news, somehow I could not just concentrate on my life. I kept thinking about her. I pray for her recovery and salute her courage.

  28. all the prayers are with her and with these prayers she'll be recovered soon.inshAllah:)

  29. I just read this and I'm offering my prayers for this little girl...

  30. subhanallaah, we will pray for her and her family, inshaallaah...

  31. What they did to her was disgusting, and if I was free to speak, I'd probably say that every single one of them should be hunted down and killed. Not because of a need for revenge, but because they have proven themselves unworthy and of no use to human society. They are terrorists and bullies, we should send them back to their maker for repairs.

  32. Bad elements go away! Never come back another day!

  33. When grown men harm innocent children in the name of "God," the name of their "god" is: Satan!

    These horrible cowards will NOT go unpunished, whether in this life or the next. The virgins they seek on the other side will no doubt beat them to bloody pulps!

    I hope I'm not being blasphemous here, no insults intended to those of you here who are true followers of Islam. I am just saying that from what I've seen, these Taliban THUGS do NOT follow Allah!

  34. ...and I agree with Steve E,

    YOU are one of the brave souls standing up for Allah and justice, which could make you a target of EVIL FOLLOWERS OF SATAN.

    YOU BE CAREFUL!!!

  35. It is impossible not to be moved by such courage - I wish something could be done to formally mark her bravery - funding for schools in Pakistan? Scholarships for Pakistani young women to international universities? She has made me remember that an education is the most precious thing of all.
    Praying that she will make a good recovery.
