'Malala moves limbs; health improving'

- October 13, 2012 - Updated 1940 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Malala Yousafzai's condition is witnessing steady improvement and as a result the critically injured 14-year old is now being administered less amount of sedatives, said Director General ISPR Maj Gen Asim Bajwa.


"Movement has been witnessed in Malala's hands and legs which is a positive development," Maj Gen Bajwa said while giving a briefing on Malala's health here on Saturday.


He said the doctors have cut down the amount of sedatives being administered to Malala Yousafzai in view of the steady improvement in her health condition. Her condition is satisfactory, he added.


The DG ISPR said the board of doctors have not yet made any decision in connection with taking young Malala abroad. The doctors are constantly busy in taking post-traumatic care of their patient, he said.


He, however, said that Malala is still on a ventilator and it would be premature to say anything in regard to the removal of the ventilator now. Doctors will decide on removal of ventilator tomorrow morning, he added.


Two other girl students wounded with Malala were "also being taken care of at places where they can get best treatment", he said, without elaborating.

When are the religious leaders in the Muslim faith going to step up to the plate and begin to denounce the kind of actions of the Taliban in a profound way. Their silence seems deafening! Shame on them.

Allah please give this national hero of Pakistan a brand new prosperous life. Please end the sick mindset that exists in this country in the name of a religion they don't even understand, who go around killing innocents. Prayers are also with Shazia, Kainat, (one of whom MashAllah is already awake and talking clearly), and all victims of violence. Ameen. Malala, we love you child.
