Timeline of Malala Yousafzai
- Malala Yousafzai -
"I said to myself, Malala, you must be brave. You must not be afraid of anyone. You are only trying to get an education. You are not committing a crime."
The issues, the answers, the religion and the impact
The main issue that Malala faced was that she was a female child who didn’t have any important role or say in anything. All the girl’s schools were being burned down and Malala was not going to tolerate it. So when she started protesting the Taliban were against it. They wanted complete power and Malala was not helping so she became a main target. Then, one day when Malala was coming home from school, the Taliban boarded her bus and demanded to know if Malala was on the bus. When they eventually found her they shot her on the head and 2 other girls. After she made a miracle recovery, she became an international symbol and fighter for girl’s education. .
The main issue
After being shot by the Taliban, she still continued her mission of fighting for her education rights and she did not let the Taliban stop her! She also, secretly went undercover with a new name and identity as a blogger for CBBs (as previously meantioned) showing her passion and how she endeavoured for the point to get across. She even continued her work after she became an international icon by writing her book 'I am Malala' as well as speaking for the United Nation and making more and more people aware of her views and ideas. Although the issue is not completely gone, thanks to Malala, it has become more known an realised by the global community!
How did she tackle the issue?
Many things influenced Malala’s actions. This includes her religion. Malala was born as Muslim and still is Muslim. Her father also had a great impact on her religious view which then impacted her.. Some reports state 'Malala's values in human rights go hand in hand with her religious faith in Islam'. This shows her devotion to the religion. Her moral beliefs lead her to clash with the Taliban, a powerful, violent Muslim group based in Afghanistan as well as Malala's native Pakistan.

Malala was heavily impacted by Islam. Her father who not only ran a girls' school, also was a very dedicated and faithful Muslim and this inspired Malala's ideas a lot. She presented an alternate narrative to the hijacking of Islam by the Taliban; using the Muslim faith as a framework to argue for the importance of education rather than making Islam a justification for oppression. Being a Muslim myself, you don't need to know much to realise that Islam is a religion of peace and what Malala was going through was the exact opposite of that. She didn't hesitate to directly challenge the Taliban, saying in a speech to the UN, "They think that God is a tiny, little conservative being who would send girls to the hell just because of going to school. The terrorists are misusing the name of Islam and Pashtun society for their own personal benefits."
How did Islam affect Malala's IMPACT

But to me, Islam is about equality and to call myself a feminist would have no position from the religion.
What is there to say about it?
EVALUATION: tHE ISSUE
The issue and how it was dealt - Yes or no?
I agree with how Malala dealt with the issue because it wasn't anything violent but it wasn't exactly peaceful protesting either. Rather, it was a collection of speeches, significant moments and perseverance. I think what she did and the impact she made is also really good because she managed to raise awareness as well as change some rules. I do think that more could be done, not by Malala, but by the world because we have to consider she is only 25 years old and made her mark when she was 16! Additionally, although it is amazing seeing young people trying to make a differance, adults and the people in charge play a big impact to and if we don't have everyone contribute to the issue it is not going to go anywhere! So, in conclusion, I think as a world, we need to work together and not just rely on one person.
Does this issue exist today in this country or any other country?
Sexism exist everywhere! In every country, every city, every school. And this is not a issue that is going to disappear overnight. However the cause for this is not pinpointed to one person, group , country or gender but everyone is there to blame; even girls themselves. If we want to get rid of sexism whether its globally or nationwide everyone needs to give something. Although rules will change, people won't, and the governing system cannot catch every single report of sexism so we need to make equality a normal thing. And not only sexism, so many other issues too and not just about equality. I do not think only one person is capable of making a difference, I think that the whole world is needed. It doesn't have to be something as big as Malala, just a simple sentence can change the world.
"I truly believe the only way we can create global peace is through not only educating our minds, but our hearts and our souls."
What are my opinions on her?
My opinions on Malala Yousafzai
My opinion of Malala Yousafzai is that she is a very inspiring and courageous person. I say this because despite everything she went through she still persevered and in addition to this she really made her point aware and she stood up for what was right and really left a big mark. A good thing about her is that she didn't give up even during the toughest times and she became an amazing role model for all the generations to come. However, a bad thing about her is that her arguments were slightly opinion-based. When I say this I mean that, she was heavily inspired by her religion, which is good, but she used it as an argument for her fight, however if she had used some for statistics it may've made her argument more powerful and helpful. But this is not that big of an issue, so overall I think her way of dealing with it was perfect, especially for her young age.
Her intial goal was to get female education rights' in her hometown but I think after she got shot that grew on to be on the whole world. As of now her hometown has implemented this rule but in the larger picture we still have a long way to go. It doesn't entirely matter that she couldn't do it and fix all of the issues but what does matter is that she raised awareness and made this an issue that does matter. I think she is an amazing person to learn about (and other people must've agreed because she made it on the UK National Curriculum!) because her acts does not teach just one thing. And although, the main bit about learning about her is, of course, female education rights' it also teaches a valuable lesson on resilience and perseverance which is really motivational, especially for younger children, knowing that they can make a difference like Malala did.
Goals and education
Does learning about remarkable people make us want to be more like them?
Of course learning about remarkable people makes us want to be more like them! Some people may call it jealousy, but I think of it as aspiring to be better. Learning about remarkable people helps us realise how amazing we can be and how powerful we truly are. Just the thought of them or what they did can help inspire us to change the world or make a difference. It makes us think: 'If they can do it, why can't I?' That's why I think learning about remarkable people is not only educational and helpful, but also inspiring.
Remarkable people: how about us?
