Malala’s life out of danger

Child rights activist Malala Yousufzai — who was shot in head by Pakistani Taliban in Swat district on Tuesday — successfully underwent an operation at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) to remove the bullet.
“The bullet has been successfully removed from her head after five-hour long operation, however, she is still in critical condition and could be shifted to abroad,” Dr Mumtaz, a neurosurgeon, told reporters. He added that they were hopeful that Malala’s condition will be improved in next few days.
Meanwhile, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Managing Director Junaid Yunus has said that the arrangements have been completed to shift Malala abroad for treatment.
“We will provide every facility to Malala…our air-ambulance is ready at Peshawar airport to shift her Dubai,” Yunus added.
Many in Pakistan reacted with shock and revulsion to the shooting on Tuesday of 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai, who was flown to intensive care in the northwestern city of Peshawar where doctors are struggling to save her life.
Police said two other girls were also wounded in the attack on Malala’s school bus, which the Taliban claimed, saying anyone who spoke out against them would suffer a similar fate.
A team of senior neurosurgeons has been setup at combined military hospital (CMH) which will take the final decision to shift Malala abroad.
Earlier another doctor in Saidu Sharif Medical Complex in Swat’s main town of Mingora had said the bullet penetrated her skull but missed her brain, leaving her out of danger.
Malala won international recognition for highlighting Taliban atrocities in Swat with a blog for the BBC three years ago, when the Islamist militants led by radical cleric Maulana Fazlullah burned girls’ schools and terrorised the valley.
She received the first-ever national peace award from the Pakistani government last year, and was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize by advocacy group KidsRights Foundation in 2011.

    I salute Malala, her spirit and the cause she is pursuing. I pray for her long and healthy life. At the same time I cannot restrain myself from condemning this cowardly act owned by the Talibans. They are a curse on our nation. Unfortunately, they have many sympathisers in politics and judiciary. They all belong to the same lot. They criticise Americans but do not target Talibans who are only serving as front men of America & India. Once, Americans leave Afghanistan, they will use these Taliban to destabilise us. Death to Talibans, Mullahs and all their sympathisers!!!

    No one can say that unless she has come to her conscious and her swelling goes down.
    I am repeating that she has to move either UAE or Agha khan facility without any delay as post operation treatment of this kind need special care not in this CMH.
    No one can say she is out of danger even she is back to life. can we say like that after seeing such horrific but cowardly attack to this brave child of weak nation.???

      I understand your passion, but never ever doubt CMH.

      CMH is a highly qualified hospital— we save soldiers, who go through the worst mutilations and injuries— this is our line of medical healing.

        This is your limited approach.I am not saying it on some biased grudges basically I am CMH born monster but it is my complete research on CMH and govt hospitals that how much infections were/ are spread through these facilities and non professional attitude is seen there .I am trying to compile this research that how how our eastern ways of treatments were swapped by ruling elites such disease spreading hospitals on the name of modern treatment.
        Ok at this time this discussion is not valid.Here One should called dr Rasheed juma for this kind of critical surgery.No one in Pakistan is capable like him but we trapped him in some kind of politics.This surgery was beyond the range of army docs.

    A sad reflection on the state of affairs.We failed to protect a very obvious target for our enemies.Who is in charge in Swat? Does any one know? Stop looking around you.Just accept and have some fear of the Almighty and be honest with the people PAKISTAN.
