Malala, daughter of Ziauddin Yousafzai, spoke against the world’s most dangerous terrorist organisation through her blogs on the BBC Urdu website under the pseudonym Gul Makai, against the oppression faced by them in Swat Valley, Pakistan.
Malala spoke for the right of girls, especially the right to receive a complete education and her courage and bravery gained worldwide recognition and support.
