I oppose the neo-colonial manner in which Malala has been used and allows herself to be used, but for someone shot through the head by the nato death squads and survived as a very young woman in Pak, I'm not into this Malala-bashing obsession. I found this to be very interesting.
"First of all I'd like to thank The Struggle and the IMT for giving me a chance to speak last year at their Summer Marxist School in Swat and also for introducing me to Marxism and Socialism. I just want to say that in terms of education, as well as other problems in Pakistan, it is high time that we did something to tackle them ourselves. It's important to take the initiative. We cannot wait around for any one else to come and do it. Why are we waiting for someone else to come and fix things? Why aren?t we doing it ourselves?"
