Malala To Be Conferred With Nobel Peace Prize: The Story of Malala

malala for nobel

She envisioned the dream of women liberation in the streets of Swat (Pakistan) when she was shot, but now her dream has transformed into a more zealous fight for the rights of women. After she was successful in defeating death, she has emerged stronger and decided to challenge the Taliban more vociferously. Strong, courageous, and bold, Malala Yousufzai has become a sworn enemy for the Taliban and the torchbearer of women rights in Islam.

Malala has been nominated for 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for her active role against Taliban. The Pakistani child rights activist has become the youngest ever recipient of the prize. The Nobel committee has lauded her "struggle against the suppression of children and young people."

Paying tribute to Malala, Thorbjorn Jagland, Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman, says "Despite her youth, Malala Yousafzai, has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education and has shown by example that children and young people too can contribute to improving their own situations."

"This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls' rights to education."

Nobel committee acknowledged the role of a Muslim girl, that too a Pakistani, for joining in a common struggle for children's education and against extremism.


The Story of Malala: Chapter 1


malala nobel prize winner after the taliban attack
Malala - the name itself inspires attention and evokes action. I am Malala is the real life story of a 16-year-old Pakistani girl, who raised her voice against one of the most violent of human races - the terrorist group of Taliban. Malala was shot for standing up against the Taliban rule that advocated banishment from school for girls. This 16-year-old girl, who loved going to school and wanted to study to do something big in life, opened her voice against the Taliban diktat, asking girls not to fear the terrorist group that wanted to see all girls within the corridors of their homes.

But the Taliban did not sit silently and conspired against this little girl, who has now become a heroine of sort for all Muslim girls in Pakistan. The Taliban plotted to kill her and shot her in October 2012 when she was returning from school in a school bus. The attacker fired three shots, says Malala - while one hit her in the left eye socket, the two others mistakenly hit two other girls. Malala was rushed to a Paksitani hospital and soon after was shifted to Britain, especially after voices to save her life were heard from all corners of the globe. Today, this girl is alive, with God's grace. Undithered by the Taliban, this little Paksitani girl has sworn to continue fighting for the rights of women.

I am Malala
I am Malala is her story - right from her birth until her last day in her home country. Malala has become the voice of Muslims and the face of women rights in Islamic countries - the voice of moderate Muslims who respect their women and see them on a par with men. The Pakistani girl credits her upbringing for her braveheart nature and passion to resist atrocious rule of the Taliban. The charismatic teenager gives due credit to her father, who has remained an active voice against the Taliban's narrow-mindedness. He is an outspoken activist, who is fighting for the rights of women and believes girls have equal rights as men when it comes to education. Presently, he is in Britain with his courageous daughter, who is still receiving treatment after being shot by terrorists last October. Malala has also joined a school there.

In a speech to the UN, she challenges the Taliban, saying, "They think that God is a tiny, little conservative being who would send girls to the hell just because of going to school. The terrorists are misusing the name of Islam and Pashtun society for their own personal benefits. Islam says that it is not only each child's right to get education, rather it is their duty and responsibility."

The Taliban attack has only brought more fame and recognition for Malala on the global level. Now the 16-year-old girl from Pakistan's Swat has hundreds of thousands of followers from all over the world, who are reiterating Malala's message of equality, equal opportunity, and moderate Islam.

After her address to the UN General Assembly, Malala was awarded the Children's Peace Prize. She has also received the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought from the European Parliament and was nominated for the most prestigious Nobel peace Prize. The Malala Fund, her foundation works to make girl education in developing countries a priority. Her book, "I Am Malala," is a frank and straightforward account of her real life happenings and the problems faced by Pakistan when it comes to fighting against the radical brand of Islam.

Unlike the Taliban thinking, Malala's ideology is to fight for girls' rights and create a society where there is equality.

Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk.
