For someone so young to have such an influence in this world shows us all that we must appreciate people like this more often.
For the Taleban to want to eliminate her shows they are truly intimidated by her and others.
For the Taleban the best way for them to ensure control is to gun down without remorse anyone and everyone that stands up to them. They are truly the cowards as they cannot even think outside of their limited thinking.
For a female to stand up to them and say "I have just as much right to live in this world as you(the Taleban)" is impossible for them to accept.For them the female is the submissive,the receptical(of male urges ableit sexual or through violence).The female is a non-person to them(the Taleban)and must be viewed and treated with disdain.
Fortunately there are many educated Muslims who abhore what happened to Malala.Unfortunately the ignorant and resentful are greater in number than the educated.
The ignorant,resentful and those easily manipulated by certain mullahs in various communities are the main ones for concern.
I am not Muslim.Neither am I a Christian.But I am a female and I know my beliefs would result with me being shot by the Taleban if I had the misfortune of living in Afghanistan or even Pakistan.
Just how many other "Malala's" are out there in those countries whose lives and passings are not even mentioned in the news of this world?
