Невероятната съдба на Малала Юсафзай

Томи Бисеров

За нея не се говори много в родните медии. Истински значимите неща се случват докато ние се инатим пред превратностите на живота. През това време една тийнейджърка успява да се опълчи на талибанските групировки и да размаха пръст пред света като сигнал за несправедливостта и потъпкването на човешките права в Арабския свят. Тя е Малала Юсафзай, 17-годишното момиче от Пакистан, простреляно от талибани, докато пътува към училището си. Нейното име поражда нестихващ интерес у медиите от САЩ до Япония, хиляди хора стават нейни последователи, среща се с кралица Елизабет II, американския президент Обама и с председателя на Европарламента Мартин Шулц. Генералният секретариат на ООН, по инициатива на Бан Ки-мун, обявява 12 юли за Ден на Малала. Как една мюсюлманска девойка с хиджаб се превърна в толкова значима личност за човечеството?

Малала се ражда в пакистанското градче Мингора в семейството на пущунския просветен деец Зиаудин Юсафзай. Израства в една нетипична за арабския свят среда на толерантност, разбиране и отстояване на човешките ценности – още като малка пред нея се разкрива тайната на науката, изкуството и литературата. Това обяснява пламенния ѝ стремеж към образованието, което според нея дава смисъл на човешкото съществуване. На 11 Малала започва да списва блог в интернет за това колко важно е образованието. Дори започва да пише за Би Би Си в родината си още от 12-годишна възраст. В началото ѝ предлагат да използва псевдоним, но тя отказва. Баща ѝ, който е бил директор на девическо училище, я подкрепя напълно. Майка ѝ - оставена без образование заради племенните порядки, иска поколението на дъщеря ѝ да получи онова, което на нея ѝ е било отнето. Именно затова Юсафзай настоява всички деца, независимо от техния пол, произход или социално положение, да имат възможността да посещават училище. Малала се нагърбва с една нелека задача, наистина опасно изпитание, което може да струва живота ѝ в ситуацията, в която се намира нейната страна.

През 2009 г. само за месец няколко терористични групировки взривяват три девически училища в северозападен Пакистан. В продължение на две години са разрушени над 200 училища в долината Сват - честа арена на кървави атаки. Две експлозии разтърсват и университета в Исламабад през последните няколко години. Юсафзай отказва да приеме забраната за достъп до образователната система на момичетата, налагана от шериата, с което си навлича гнева на ислямските фундаменталисти. Активната ѝ позиция срещу репресиите и ограниченията на религиозните фанатици води след себе си превратния момент в живота на тогава 15-годишното момиче.

На 9 октомври 2012 г., докато пътува заедно със свои съученички и с учителката си към училището в северозападния пакистански град Пешавар, въоръжени нападатели нахлуват в автбоуса и откриват огън, а след това бягат. Малала е простреляна в главата и врата, а друга нейна приятелка също е ранена. За щастие, животът и на двете е вън от опасност. Пакистанският президент, премиерът и лидерите на различни опозиционни партии осъждат нападението. Такава е реакцията и на "Амнести интърнешънъл" и ООН. "Бъдещето на Пакистан принадлежи на Малала и смели млади момичета като нея. Историята няма да запомни страхливците, които се опитаха да я убият в училище", заявява посланикът на САЩ в ООН Сюзън Райс. Талибаните поемат отговорност за нападението, оправдавайки деянието си с това, че Юсафзай е "прозападно настроена” и ги критикува. "Ние сме срещу светската образователна система", казва говорителят на групировката Ихсанулах Ихсан пред агенция "Ройтерс".

Всъщност куршума идва сед краткия въпрос „Ти ли си Малала?” Със сигурност това на пръв поглед безобидно мюсюлманско момиче е стреснало джихадистите, които откриват в нейно лице опасен идеологически враг. След опита за покушение Юсафзай е транспортирана в Лондон, където продължава нейното лечение. Но дори в английската столица, след това ужасно житейско събитие, Малала не спира да убеждава света в несправедливостта и ретроградното отношение на ислямистите към жените в арабските страни.

Тя се превръща в лице на борбата за образование на момичетата по целия свят, не само в Пакистан. Тя е галеното дете на медиите и има защо. Става корица на сп. "Тайм", дава интервюта за вестници като "Ню Йорк Таймс" и "Гардиън", заваляват покани за участия в телевизионни продукции.

Малала Юсафзай е най-младият човек в историята на Нобеловата награда, номинирана за изключително престижния приз за нейната обществена активност. Тя е носител на наградата за защита на човешките права "Сахаров", признание от "Амнести интернешънъл", статуетката „Анна Политковская”, която се присъжда на жени, защитаващи човешките права по време на войни и въоръжени конфликти.

Чуйте нейната реч пред Общото събрание на ООН и сами ще се убедите в нейните лидерски качества. Малала говори пламенно и убедително, с присъщия за истинските мечтатели патос, който носи усещане за справедливост, за отстояване на човешките права и свободи, за вяра в утрешния ден, за ясна проекция на бъдещето. Денят на Малала се превръща в своебразен празник на свободата, толерантността и образованието. Той събира всяка година над 500 млади лидери от цял свят, които дискутират проблемите, свързани със свободния достъп на децата от кризисните райони до образователната система.

Редица знаменити личности се вдъхновяват от младата пакистанка – като започнем от фронтменът на U2 и бележит благодетел Боно, та стигнем чак до комедийния водещ Джон Стюарт, който шеговите поиска да я осинови. От нея се впечатляват Мадона, Анджелина Джоли и Елън Дедженеръс.

С милионите жени по цял свят, които насила са ограничавани в образованието си, се заема новосъздаденият благотворителен фонд „Малала”. Организират се редица обществени търгове на картини и ценни колекции, концерти и изложби, приходите от които отиват за построяването на училища за момичета в страни като Пакистан, Афганистан, Иран и Сирия.

Малала Юсафзай разби на пух и прах архаичните представи за смирената мюсюлманска девойка, кротко подчиняваща се на джихадистките закони. С активната си хуманитарна дейност пакистанката се нареди достойно до имена като Беназир Бхуто и Аун Сан Су Чи. Несъмнено, само на 17 години, Малала се превърна в една от най-значимите личности в човешката история.…...

Malala Report

...Malala report Malala began fighting for women rights when she was 11. She started sharing her opinion against no education for girls in her country by posting on a blog, about how she felt and why. She posted how it wasn’t fair that girls shouldn’t be allowed to have an education just because they lived in Pakistan. She started saying things like how she thought that girls should be allowed to have an education no matter where they lived, and how the girls should be treated better than staying home, taking care of the livestock, and having children. What Malala fights for is not only for women’s rights in general but for women’s rights in education. Malala is a courageous woman, with a strong opinion, and feelings for what she believes in. People love her for that, but they hate her for that too. Malala was 14 when she got shot in the head and neck on October 9,2012. The bullet barely grazed her brain and almost killed her by inches. As her father put it: "When she fell, the person who attacked her wanted to kill her … She fell temporarily, she will rise again, she will stand again. She can stand now."

The Impact of Revolutions on the Cold War

...Revolution was an important theme throughout the Cold War. Revolutions begat, molded and then finally brought an end to the Cold War. In 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution forced Vladimir Lenin, the new communist leader, to withdraw from World War I on the side of the Western Allies and to sign a separate peace agreement with Germany. The suspicions that this aroused among the Allies were the seeds of the Cold War. In 1949, the New Democratic Revolution of China ended the Kuomintang (KMT) rule and established a communist government, thus guaranteeing the existence of the Cold War. Throughout its existence, the Cold War appeared to be something that was constantly present and unchanging. However, revolutions in Europe and Asia after 1953 continued to shape the Cold War until revolution inevitably destroyed in 1989. In 1954, after failing to contain communism in Korea, America involved itself in the Vietnam Conflict. At this time, France had just lost control of its colonial holdings in Vietnam. After the French were defeated by a communist contingent lead by Vo Nguyen Giap at Dien Bien Phu, the French decided that they could no longer retain their Indochinese colonies. In the summer of 1954, France and Vietnam signed the Geneva Peace Accords. It was agreed that Vietnam would be temporarily divided along the 17th parallel such that the north would be communist and the south would not be. As a result of this, the United States decided to intervene in the South Vietnamese......

Pobres Malalas

...POBRES MALALAS Malala Yousafzai aos quinze anos foi baleada na cabeça por membros do Talibã. Seu crime: querer estudar e aprender em um país muçulmano dominado por fundamentalistas religiosos. Diz Malala: “O Talibã também desenvolveu um sistema próprio de leis, que não tem nada a ver com o Islã. O Islã nos diz que a educação e o conhecimento são direitos de todas as pessoas. Então, eu acho que o Talibã não leu o Corão da forma apropriada. Eles precisam sentar e ler o texto novamente, com calma. O profeta Maomé nos ensina sobre igualdade, sofre fraternidade, sobre o amor ao próximo. O Talibã se esquece de tudo isso e só se lembra da jihad. Nós, meninas, temos nossa própria jihad pela qual lutar. Temos que lutar pelos nossos direitos e pela educação”. Parece que Malala também não leu o Corão de forma apropriada. O Corão não gosta das mulheres. Eis alguns exemplos: Alcorão Sura 4:34: "Os homens têm autoridade sobre as mulheres, pelo que Allah preferiu alguns a outros, e pelo que dependem de suas riquezas. Então, as íntegras são devotas, custódias da honra, na ausência dos maridos, pelo que Allah as custodiou. E aquelas de quem temeis a desobediência, exortai-as, pois, e abandonai-as no leito, e batei-lhes. Alcorão Sura 38:44: "E apanha, com tua mão, um feixe de capim, então, bate nela com ele, e não violes teu juramento..." Allah dizendo a Jó para bater em sua esposa. A herança do homem vale duas vezes a das mulheres Sura 4:11 O......

Malala

...haven’t is either lying or under the age of 13 years. So when a teenage girl undertakes such an incredible task of courage, one that adults cover in fear of doing, the event takes utmost significance. This is exactly what Malala Yousafzai, a huge inspiration to me and so many other girls did. Being only fourteen years old did not matter to Malala Yousafzai. In a short fourteen years she has won fame for fighting for peace, women’s rights and humanity. She won the National Peace award in Pakistan for all her efforts. In 2009- at only the age of 11- she fought Taliban insurgency that tried to take over her village of Swat. She wanted to set up her own political party which would campaign the right of young Pakistani girls to education. This girl- this heroine- was shot by a member of the Taliban, in the head and neck, and was in a critical condition. The Taliban called her work ‘obscenity’. I call it heroism. They tried to silence this girl forever- they tried, and are still trying, to silence the ideas of freedom, rights and equality forever. But they will not win this war, not while human beings like Malala breathe and fight. An army chief called Malala ‘an icon of courage and hope’. She’s more than that, she’s the dawn of a new generation, the leader of a revolution in which humanity and justice rules over the whole world. On her blog she writes about how she couldn’t go to school anymore and how she always was living in fear for she would get caught going there. The......

Malala Yousafzai

...Girls' Education Rights in Pakistan On October 9, 2012, in Mingora, Pakistan 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by two Taliban men when she was arriving home on a bus from school (Wilmore par 1). She was targeted for supporting and speaking out for girls' education rights (Wilmore par 3). In the summer of 2009, Pakistan's military claimed that they drove the group out of the area, but the Taliban are still attacking people there, especially those who support girls' education like Malala (Wilmore par 15). Under Islamic or religious law, all people, including women, should be granted educational rights and freedom in, not only Pakistan, but other parts of the world as well.To begin with, in Pakistan, it is hard for females to receive education because of the Taliban's strict religious laws and attacks (Wilmore par 6). In 2007, the Taliban arrived in Swat Valley, Pakistan, banning music and dancing (Jacobsen par 13), and they also banned women from activities like shopping (Wilmore par 6). The new laws made it uncomfortable for women to go out alone in public because many of their activities were restricted or banned (Jacobsen par 13). To make sure that citizens would not go against them, the Taliban forced them to accept the laws with the use of brutal punishments such as public whippings, bombings, and beheadings (Wilmore par 5). Then the Taliban started destroying schools with bombs, killing students, teachers, and passerby in the process, and they also......

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees that free speech should not be impeded. Many organizations, including the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, are continuing the legal battle of insuring the right of free speech remains unencumbered. Digital Freedom Fighters: Defending Free Speech in the 21st Century Introduction Comic books have been published for over 75 years with a varied subject matter including superhumans, gods, soldiers, historical events and animals. Originally conceived as a child’s reading fodder, comics have evolved beyond the original audience. A recent study found that over 98% of comic book readers are over the age of 18. (Pantozzi, 2012) No longer an art form exclusively for children, comics have been the target of many censorship attacks. With the advent of 21st century technology, comic books have evolved and the criticisms have evolved with them.

You are a fighter pilot and this is your first flight. There are many other pilots around you. In the world there are many pilots that fight and put their life on the line for others. They are well trained and well educated. They are to be respected for what they do. The fighter plane and pilots have come a long way since they were first seen in the air of France. The changes are mainly because of the new technology. The first aviation fighter pilots were used in World War 1.They flew very slow but stable planes. It was the Idea of a Frenchman named Roland Garros to strap a machine gun to the nose of the plane. He soon realized that there was a problem, the stream of bullets were wrecking the blade. Roland Garros then had an idea he took steel armor plates and welded them to the lower portion of the blades to deflect any bullets that might hit the blade, this idea worked but it was crude. He took his idea into combat and was able to down four planes. Before Roland Garros idea the pilots normally would use rifles and pistols to bring down a plane (3). When he was fighting later he was trapped behind enemy lines and forced down. The Germans found out his secret......

Revolution

...society. The definition of a revolution varies, depending who you ask. Most would say the definition of a revolution is an overthrow of an established government or political system by the people governed. It also may be defined as a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, especially one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence. Revolution effect on society varies. Revolutions have both a positive and negative effect on people and society in which it takes place. For example the industrial revolution made sever changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation and technology. This revolution made things easier for people; the machinery invented made working much easier. You didn't have to pull a plow because a tractor did it for you. Technology had profound effect socioeconomic and cultural conditions of the times. The industrial revolution began in the United Kingdom but spread throughout Europe, North America and eventually the rest of the world. This Revolution marks a major turning point in human history. The American revolution had a large impact on woman and their rights. The American Revolution had a large impact on slavery also. Woman before this time had little to now rights at all. Women's roles became more valued for their aid in the revolution and were under the idea of "Republican motherhood" or mothers for the new nation.

This nonfiction piece of writing was published on October 8th, 2013 by Little, Brown and Company. It has since received the Goodreads Choice Awards Best Memoir & Autobiography for the great achievement of recollecting Malala’s brave endeavors. In I Am Malala, she begins with recounting her younger years in which her demand for equal women’s rights had stemmed from, and afterwards, how she grew into an independent, young woman who spoke for millions of females in her country that could not receive education. In the beginning of I Am Malala, Malala describes her home as “the most beautiful place in all the world. My valley, the Swat Valley, is a heavenly kingdom of mountains, gushing waterfalls and crystal-clear lakes” (15). She also spoke about everything that she had loved and was proud about in her home: from her admirable father who, unlike most Pashtuns, rejoiced upon receiving a daughter in a country that honors sons, to her best friend Moniba, with whom she had laughed and confided in, and Malka-e-Noor, her rival for top of the class at Kahshul School.

Emma Watson vs. Malala Yousafzai

...Emma Watson vs. Malala Yousafzai I am going to compare two very important speeches, in my opinion. Emma Watson’s was on the HeForShe Campaign and Malala Yousafzai’s promoting education for girls. Bothe speeches were delivered at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Emma Watson, at the age of 24, launched a campaign called “HeForShe” on September 20, 2014. She is the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and she was cohosting this event when she gave the speech. She is a famous British actress and has been advocating for gender equality. Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for going to school, and on July 12, 2013, at the age of 16, she delivered a speech promoting education for girls. She has become a champion for the rights of children everywhere to be educated. Emma Watson began her speech by addressing “Your Excellences, UN Secretary General, President of the General Assembly, Executive Director of UN Women, and distinguished guests.” (Normaljean2, 2014) As for Malala she began her speech, not only this one but every other one she did, “In the name of God, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Honorable UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Respected President General Assembly Vuk Jeremic, Honorable UN envoy for Global education Mr. Gordon Brown, Respected elders and my dear brothers and sisters.” (A World at School, 2014) Both were very respectful. I believe that the first challenge a speaker faces is to establish their credibility to......
