(Mlala) has appealed, free education compulsory for all children, in middle of applause and hugs, (Mlala) said that do not have the intention to retreat from the principle of education for all. (Mlala Yusuf Zai) has emerged as an activist and a blog in the picturesque Swat Valley, which was controlled by Islamist militants in 2009 and there has chronicled life under the Taliban, and oppression and the loss of women's rights. It reached the world-renowned last year, when I participated in a televised talkshow defied the Taliban, or anyone else prevents them from education. It was broadcast from inside the Swat valley and the elders of the Taliban are present in the TV studio. And he has warned the program announcer Joseph Ze of being stepped on dangerous ground, and during the break suggested it stop talking for her safety. The challenge outright the Taliban in Pakistan and is rarely claim was a pupil of the fundamentalist group is unprecedented. So the gunman opened fire on Joseph Ze and specifically in the head and wounded two of her colleagues. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. Pakistani Government has been moving troops and helicopters rushed to remove them from the Swat Valley rugged. I traveled in the end to Birmingham England, where doctors treated portions of her skull put a plate of titanium and they insert the device to restore hearing. And he says Hamid Mir, Pakistani TV host: "The first time I appeared on TV screens and in my program. When she was talking to me, it was the Taliban militants standing behind her and was telling me that her school closed and she wanted to go to school, and she wants to get her education. She was speaking with great courage, and I was worried for her safety. When I took a break, I asked her, whispering in her ears, and I told her, 'you may ever encounter some problems because the Taliban are standing there, and you're criticizing you. So if you want to maintain your life, you can go, we have spoken enough ", but she said, 'No, I will speak more. I willspeak more. " He adds, "so it continued to direct the program and had been talking and talking. It was critical of the militants. It was critical of the bombing of girls' schools in Swat, courage and was very. When I finished the program, and within one hour, Mlala Yusuf Zai has become a big name in Pakistan. As the people of Pakistan greatly impressed by her courage and became a household name in Pakistan in a matter of one hour. " She said her Pakistani political, Sharmila Vruki, "showed the world that when there is a conviction, when there is a dream, and when you want to achieve that dream, nothing that can stop you from it. I think that there have been families that began in sending their daughters to school. Even if you're talking about Swat itself. During the last six and seven months of 2013 recorded a rise in the proportion of girls' enrollment. This in itself is no mean feat. I think that in all parts of Pakistan, and around the world, people realized that the importance of girls' education can contribute to the progress of not only the house, but also in the progress of the country. “
(Mlala Yusuf Zai), in her speech at the United Nations said that, "Dear friends, on the ninth of October 2012, the Taliban shot Ali, in the left side of my forehead. And they shot my friends also. They believe that the lead will be able to silence us but they failed. It is the silence out of thousands of votes. The terrorists think they will change my goals and that they would stop my ambitions. But nothing has changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died, and generated power, energy and courage. " "Even if it was a place that I have to sit on the ground, or until there was no place to sit, but if I can get an education there, you'll stay there to get an education. Whatever it is, and whatever the way, I have to get my education, and I willget it. " "Let's take. Let's take our books and pens. Understanding our arms stronger. It could be for one child, one teacher, for one book and one pen to change the world. Education is the only solution. Education First. Thank you ".
