Dear Friends, in the 9th of October 2012, the Taliban shot me personally in the side that is left of forehead. They shot my buddies too. They believed that the bullets would silence us. Nevertheless they failed. After which, away from that silence came, tens and thousands of sounds. The terrorists thought that they might alter our aims and prevent our aspirations but nothing changed within my life except this: Weakness, hopelessness and fear passed away. Strength, energy and courage was created. I’m exactly the same Malala. My ambitions are identical. My hopes are exactly the same. My ambitions are exactly the same.
Dear siblings and brothers, I’m not against anybody. Neither am we right here to talk when it comes to individual revenge up against the Taliban or other terrorists team. I will be here to speak up for the best of training of any kid. I’d like training when it comes to sons additionally the daughters of all extremists particularly the Taliban.
I really do not really hate the Talib whom shot me personally. Even though there clearly was a weapon within my hand in which he appears in the front of me. I might perhaps perhaps not shoot him. Here is the compassion that i’ve learnt from Muhammad-the prophet of mercy, Jesus christ and Lord Buddha. Here is the legacy of change that i’ve inherited from Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This is basically the philosophy of non-violence that i’ve learnt from Gandhi Jee, Bacha Khan and Mother Teresa. And also this may be the forgiveness that I have learnt from my mom and dad. ItвЂ™s this that my soul is telling me personally, be calm and love everybody else.
