The Pakistani young educational ambassador’s book, ‘I am Malala’ offers recalling of the incident when Emal Kansi after being arrested and handed over to America gave push to the statement that ‘Pakistan can do anything for money’. That book has been written by the veteran British journalist Christina Lamb. She is the lady who was active in 1989 with the Balochistan rulers and was often seen in the parties.
The book comprises of 276 pages and any one who has detailed knowledge of history, the foreign affairs and the allegations leveled against Pakistan, then one would not need to read the whole book. The question arises that who gave such perspective angle to such young 16 year old girl?
Malala the ‘Pakistani innocent girl’ who became victim of the attack by the Taliban has expressed views completely contradictory to what is expected from a patriotic individual. Through out the book she has highlighted the perspective, ideology of the Westerns. Pakistan and Islam have been used as defamatory elements by her.
The era of Zia-ul-Haq has been narrated in a way as if it was the toughest tenure during which the rights of the women were paralyzed. Little she knows that it was during his ear that the educational institutions opened up, Haseena Moin, Noor-ul-Huda Shah the known names in media field got apparently success on the screens.
She has used ‘One-eyed Mullah’ for Mullah Omar. It has also been written that she observed boycott on Pakistan’s Independence Day. To her observance of veil, abaya looks like merely a black cloak. Inappropriate words for Pakistan’s army have also been used by the ’16 year innocent girl’. In the book, displeasure to term Ahmedis as non-Muslims by the parliament has also been expressed by the girl. According to her, the judiciary did not hold any right to take such decision.
Interestingly, Sikander Azam stands out to her as the ideal man. He was the same man who was a tyrannical ruler said to killed millions of people who disliked him.
The international icon, given hype by the local and international media for her talent, bravery has presented ill thoughts for Islam and her own motherland. Do such a young girl, who serves a ‘western- mouth piece’, deserves to be given leverage by our media? Does she deserve to enjoy the prestige and honor being given by the Pakistani supporters? Those who defend her should give second thought to their perspective.
