    Malala infact Mala e Pakistan. A few days back I met one of my seniors who is doing PhD in veterinary medicine, from wazirstan telling me that his all cousins killed in an attack. Hundreds and Thousands of people are being killed daily including the child girls, nobody notices. Our men are being killed either in suicide attacks or in Drone strikes, no body observes. Why Malala only, just to divert the attention of Pakistani Nation from other issues which are many times more important than it.
