Teen Activisit Shot By Taliban

Teen activist Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban this week.

In November 2011, CNN’s Reza Sayah interviewed the teen activist. She told him that women and children have rights. The right for education and freedom is what she is fighting for.

Malala was attacked in the north-western Swat Valley and has been in critical condition since. She was shot in the head.

The Taliban accused the girl of “promoting secularism” and stated that she will be targeted again.

Widespread protest against the shooting erupted in Pakistan.

Officials in Pakistan have also offered a reward of 10m rupee ($105,000) for information that could lead to the arrest of the attackers.

The young activist gained people’s attention at age 11 when wrote a diary for BBC Urdu about life under Taliban rule.

The Taliban took control of the Swat Valley where Malala lived in 2007. The militants forced girls’ schools to close.

Protestor praised the Malala’s bravery. Others call the attack un-Islamic.

    Terrorist would never stop causing problem! Malala was a target, I guess, because of her popularity as an activist. They just want to inform everyone that they still exist. :-(

    Malala is quite brave for her young age. I do believe that this terrorist envy her because a teen like her can fight and express what she feels in her own simple way.
