  1. Malala Yousuf Zai is a hope of prosperous Pakistan who was shot by beasts which is really condemnable. They had not only attacked on a teenage Malala but also disobeyed the teachings of Muhammad SAW who was very kind to children. They savages obviously wouldn’t be called Muslims. No doubt it was a cowardly attack on a 14-year-old girl.
