October 9th 2012 witnessed a vicious incident when Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head in an attempted murder by the Taliban group. One year down, the Pakistani teenager stands confident of her actions to support her country’s young girls by protesting for the education system to flow freely for them. Malala continues to shine despite the deadly attack by terrorists and she is likely to become the youngest winner ever of the Nobel Peace Prize, report The Atlantic Wire and Time World.
By winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Malala would accompany those recipients who are on the list of Nobel Peace winners, starting from Médecins Sans Frontières in 1999 to Muhammad Yunus in 2006.
Malala says that peace and education are inseparable, as without one you cannot possess the other. “I hope that a day will come when the people of Pakistan will be free, they will have their rights, there will be peace and every girl and every boy will be going to school,” she told the BBC in an interview.
The youngest Peace Prize was embraced by Tawakul Karman, who was 32 while receiving the award. If Malala wins the Nobel Peace Prize, she will be the second ever Pakistani laureate, the third female Muslim laureate, and definitely the youngest one to achieve the prestigious award. Most importantly, it would further strengthen her approach towards educating young girls and she would become an inspiration to Pakistani women and also the entire world.
Before becoming a global symbol of children’s education, Malala too, like everybody else, was suppressed by the Taliban dominance and terrorist stir.The young Pakistani’s thoughts on Taliban’s next attack on her are praiseworthy. She says, “It seemed to me that everyone knows they will die one day. So I should do whatever I want to do.”
Recently, when a Pakistani radio station asked Malala if she thought she deserves the prize, she said, “There are many people who deserve the Nobel Peace Prize and I think that I still need to work a lot. In my opinion I have not done that much to win the Nobel Peace Prize.”
