Malala was an outspoken agitator for the right of girls to be educated – an activity that angered the . . .Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) aka the Pakistani Taliban, who have admitted carrying out the attack

The bullet which entered Malala’s skull missed the brain, so doctors are hopeful she will make a full recovery.

Asked if she would continue to campaign for the right of Pakistani woman to an education once recovered from the attempted execution, her uncle, Ahmed Shah Yusafzai, said – “Yes, of course. She always raises her voice in favour of girl’s education, and she was going to establish a foundation named after her name – Malala Education Foundation – and she wanted to work for those children who are not able to go to the school.”

There is strict security, meanwhile, both inside and outside the hospital treating Malala to prevent a further Taliban attack on Masala.
