Letter from Taliban figure to Malala
Jul 17, 2013

“You have said in your speech yesterday that pen is mightier than sword,” Rasheed wrote in reference to Malala’s speech Friday at the United Nations, “so they attacked you for your sword not for your books or school.”

This seems to be the justification offered by one of the senior taliban figures for the attack on the at-the-time 15 year old girl. As if the ridiculousness of such a justification makes any sense, he continues to make no apology or judgement on whether or not she deserved to be killed, simply washing his hands by saying he 'leaves it up to Allah' as 'he is the best judge'. Right.

Far from providing any logical explanation as to why she was shot, this letter only confirms the Taliban's barbaric, corrupt, and manipulative way of thinking. Oh and he also asks her to come back to Pakistan.. Read the whole article and the letter, and let us know what you think:

Delivering such simple matters to Allah seem to be escaping from the responsibilities. If Taliban understand Koran, they shall know they are responsible for the action and shall make it up to the shot person.
