Charismatic Girl of Swat! Inspiration for all.

Malala Yousufzai is an education activist from the village of Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan's 

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. She's know for her education movement along the northern areas of 

Pakistan.On 9 October 2012, Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by 

Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. In the days immediately following the 

attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved 

enough for her to be sent to a hospital in the United Kingdom for intensive rehabilitation. On 12 

October, a group of 50 Islamic clerics in Pakistan issued a fatwa against those who tried to kill her,

but the Taliban reiterated its intent to kill Yousafzai and her father, Ziauddin.

Her BBC blogging identity was being revealed in articles in 2009.She also began appearing on television to publicly advocate for female education.

The day following the attack, Yousafzai was still being treated in the intensive care unit of the military

 hospital in Peshawar, where her part of the skull was removed to allow room  for the brain to swell.

 Before the surgery, Yousafzai was moving her hands and feet, which suggested there was no 

paralysis,  and she verbally responded to a teacher immediately after the shooting.A plane was being

 held on standby at nearby  to move her out of Pakistan for further treatment if  necessary.

The whole of Pakistan is praying for her recovery. The student societies of prestigious universities in 

Pakistan namely LUMS and IBA organized proper praying sessions for her speedy recovery. And we 

all hope that she gets well soon.
