Malala for quality education to end terrorism

Malala for quality education to end terrorism

BIRMINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM: Nobel prize winner Malala Yousafzai has stressed for quality education to end terrorism and defeat the mindset of terrorism mentality and of hatred.

Malala was speaking at the ceremony, organized to express solidarity with the heirs of Army Public School martyrs and pay tribute to the victims, in the city of Birmingham.

She said, "There are these terrorist attacks happening, for example what happened in Paris or what happened in Peshawar a year ago."

It´s not just needed in Pakistan but across the world. If we want to end terrorism we need to bring quality education so we defeat the mindset of terrorism mentality and of hatred.

Two survivors of the APS attack, Ahmad Nawaz, 14, and Mohammed Ibrahim, 13, also took part in the ceremony.

Ahmad Nawaz recounted the horror of the December 16, 2014 Peshawar attack, in which more than 140 people including 132 children were martyred.

Ahmad said he saw his teacher burned alive in that incident and the friends with whom I was playing.

"I was surrounded by the dead bodies of those friends. So it was the horrifying experience of my life and I still have nightmares."

Ahmad Nawaz was shot in the arm while his brother was martyred in the attack.

Ibrahim was in a wheelchair, having been paralysed from the waist down.

Malala was also shot in the head by militants in Swat in 2012 after she had publicly advocated education for girls.
