An Open Letter To The Parents of Malala Yousufzai

By D. Asghar

Dear Mr and Mrs. Yousufzai,

To say that both of you are blessed is an understatement. To say that God Almighty has gifted you with a daughter, who is perhaps 100 times better than many men (myself included), is grossly inadequate. To say that you are loved by your Creator, as He is testing you in these times is perhaps appropriate.

Undoubtedly, what your beloved daughter went through as a mere teenager should stir the conscience of many around the globe. But I am ashamed and equally embarrassed to say that, we as a nation are not worthy of your gifted daughter.

We are a lost nation, enraged about our own failures, that we are unable to see any thing beyond that. Granted there was an outcry by our so called “independent” and “electronic” media, immediately after the horrific incident. But within a couple of days, there were shameful attempts to discredit the jewel of a daughter you have. The social media circulated an old picture of your daughter with former US Ambassador, insinuating that she was working for “their interests.” The talk show circus brought in the “Morality Brigade” to criticize Madonna for putting your daughter’s name on her bare back. Again giving the implication, that God forbid this is an attempt to malign an Islamic nation. Our girls will seek inspiration from Madonna and will become just like her.

To say that we are a confused lot is a sorry statement. To say that we are extremely biased and hypocritical would be the most accurate depiction of our selves. The jugglers tried very hard to make connections with “drone strikes” and your daughter’s desire to get an education. They will continue to make that connection. If it is completely out of merit (which it is in fact), they will come up with a new menu of accusations.

Its all about ideological positions. To them a girl is only to be married off to the man and that’s pretty much it. She does not need any education, because with education, she will be aware of her rights granted to her, by her faith, the state and above all by the world. In the guise of “morality” they are actually afraid of the rights. No wonder why hundreds of schools are blown to smithereens, because why educate these girls, when all they have to do is comfort men, bear their children and cook and clean the house.

So what I am about to say, may hurt or offend you, but please pay attention to this as I am saying this with utmost sincerity. Your daughter is presently undergoing treatment in the United Kingdom. Please seek political asylum for her and yourselves in the United Kingdom. Oh yes, a lot of politicians and nightly ringmasters will keep on drumming ” Pakistan ki beti” “Hamari beti Malala” nonsense. Trust me they are lying through their teeth. The ringmasters want ratings and politicos are after the votes. Its all about that, nothing more nothing less.

May God giver her a speedy recovery and she is able to go back to school in the UK. There is an old saying that “you pick your battles at another day.” Your daughter’s life is precious. Her fight is noble. But there are certain fights that you have to carry from a distance. This is an ideological fight, which fits the bill. Where social media can assist her to carry her mission from overseas.

Do not give it a second thought. Trust me, if we were not able to protect our twice elected PM, a daring Governor and a minorities Minister, then do not expect much. People will call me whatever for suggesting this, but honestly I don’t care. They are bunch of hypocrites, who will say one thing upfront and do something opposite. God forbid, if she returns and those who have threatened her will succeed, these people will shout on the idiot box for 48 hours and then it will be old news.

Hope you will give it a serious thought. May the blessings of Almighty be with you and your courageous daughter at all times.

Humble Regards,

D. Asghar

    Presently islam and muslims show us how fascism functions and how dangerous and horrible it is. Most

    relevent…………………………………………………… give some example.muslims are victims of international terrorism.

    maggu,

    september 11 was their new year on 2001 and just read following,

    Jewish and Israeli holidays 2000–2050 – Wikipedia, the free …
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_and_Israeli_holidays_2000%E2%80%932050
    All Jewish holidays begin at sundown on the evening before the date shown. … 5761 (2000–2001) … Saturday, September 11: Rosh HaShanah*; Monday, September 20: Yom Kippur*; Saturday, September 25: Sukkot*; Saturday, October 2

    so i hope u will not fight on this again.ethopian jews are oldest and original jew.their new year is sept11.sept 11 was jewish new year day when wtc was attacked that is why most of jews were absent.pakistanis indians black and christians died.they made 4 billion through insurance.through wars they also made money.

  3. tajender United Arab Emirates Internet Explorer Windows says:

    bibi maggu,u are an idiot and americans were stupids.americans were paying 5000dollars for helping the arrest of terrorists.90%of those arrested were caught on the tip of their brothers.they settled family loans with that money.that time 5000dollar was big amount.bhai bhai ko pakadwa raha tha.that is why nobody is punished.they had no food to eat in pakistan.in american jail they had clean cloth and good food.once or twice in the month they were beaten.no problem.
    when jailers came in contact with muslims many of them converted to islam.story of chief jailer converting to islam is on net.

    ‘why fbi has not charsheeted anybody for 9/11.’
    .
    9/11 conspirators led by your aakaa Bin Lunden were on the list of FBIs most wanted like other pocketmaars. Ludden was killed like the dog he was and thrown in the sea

    ossama is not on fbi list as perpetuator of sep11.check with embassy.

    .
    I knew you would do this. My confidence in your stupidity is completely justified. Read the wiki entry you are pointing me to carefully. Rosh hashana is the jewish new year. The Jewish year 5760 began on 11 sep 1999. You may have planned the terror on new year of 1999 but it happened next year.
    .
    I don’t know about oldest Jews etc but the calendar is the same for all. And gregorian dates do not coincide with these calendars. EID DOES NOT COME ON THE SAME DATE EACH YEAR SINCE HIJDA CALENDAR RUNS ON THE LUNAR CYCLE.
    .
    Got it?

    TAJJAD, so all the Jews working in New York are Ethiopian Jews? So what do they do to hide their kallu color? Paint themselves every morning?

    “ossama is not on fbi list as perpetuator of sep11.check with embassy.”
    .
    I just spoke to the ambassador as he was eating his breakfast of sausage and bacon. He informed me that there is no hard evidence that Osama was directly linked to 9/11. But he also said that Khaalid sheikh Mohamed and the four others against whom there is hard evidence and who are being tried in Guantanamo were working directly with usama bin lunden. So successive American administrations have believed that he was responsible for 9/11.
    .
    The American ambassador started laughing loudly when I said Osama was not held responsible. He asked me to read president Obama speech after killing the dog. The first three paragraphs are only about 9/11 and Osama link as leader of al quaeda.
    .

  10. Mohan United Arab Emirates Safari iPad says:

    Maggu,

    You have created a record of writing maximum posts in trying to have some meaningful dialogue with Tajender.
    I sincerely admire your patience. He is an old friend and I know him very well and I can guarantee you that, nothing,
    absolutely nothing you say is going to change his opinion. Keep tring if you wish, good luck to you.

    U ALSO COME WITH UR OPINION.what is wrong.what i have said is right.

  12. Mohan United Arab Emirates Safari iPad says:

    Tajender,

    I know that in your opinion you can never be wrong and whatever you say is correct.

    maggu american ambassdor will take official goverment line.he is a employee.

    ask him why chief trainer of ossama is enjoying comfortable life ife in america.he was cia man.
    how a passenger plane breached the security of pentagon.walked on runway,hit the building killed 400 plus people and disappeared alonwith the bodies of passenger.

    5 isrealis mossad agents were caught dancing and enjoying when building was falling.september 11 was their new year day.
    1200 top inllectuals and scientists from america have confirmed through letter that sept 11 was inside job.purpose was to open new front and make money through war.

    sandy is awnser from allah for hurting their children.

    minds of worshippers are closed.SO YOURS.ABUSES DONOT MAKE UR ARGUMENT STRONG.MUSLIMS ARE RED INDIANS OF 21 ST CENTURY AS THEY ARE SITTING ON BLACK GOLD.OSSAMA WAS CHASED AND KILLED ON REQUEST OF SAUDIS AS HE WAS DANGER TO ROYAL FAMILY.THEY COULD EASILY CAPTURE HIM.HE HAD NO ARMS.THEY PAID FOR THIS.ALQAEDA ABONDONED HIM LONG AGO.REGARDING KHALID SHEIKH MOHAMMED,STAEMENT EXTRACTED THROUGH TORTURE AND FORCE ARE NOT ACCEPTED IN COURT OF LAW.

    come up with strong argument i will agree to u.

  16. heavy_petting United States Internet Explorer Windows says:

    “but shankaracharya of benaras converted to islam is correct.i know dwiedi.”
    .
    There is no Shankaracharyya in Benaras. The guy shown on youtube masquerading as a Shankaracharyya is a recognized thief and pocketmaar from the Dasaswamedh Ghat. He converted to Islam to get a second wife (the first one threw him out but wouldn’t give him a divorce, bechaara!). As they say, the liars frauds and scums of the world all end up in Islam.

    bigamy is more rampant among hindus than muslims.as per hindu religion u can have 100 wives.shree krishan had 1603.ur awnser is bullshit and wrong.u people survive on lies and cheating.ur minds are closed,knowledge is limited so hate is best way to defend.conversion to get marry is not permitted in islam.

  18. relevant Germany Internet Explorer Windows says:

    The writings of tajender, AKB and rex show how islam damages not only the brain but also the character. Islam will become more fascistic and violent in future. Muslims who do not participate in that will be brutalized and slandered. Islam is the biggest producer of killers, cowards, deceivers and self-deceivers today.

  19. tajender United Arab Emirates Internet Explorer Windows says:

    relevant how irrelevant u are..

    About the Video: Shankar acharya of Banaras (Varanasi) – Acharya Sanjay Dwivedi- embraced Islam after researching Quran and Vedas he come to conclusion that islam is truth and Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) is the kalki avatar mentioned in Vedas not krishna or vishnu as our hindu brothers believe. His islamic name is Ahmed Pundit now he devoted his life to do dawah among hindus and other non muslims. h e is the grandson of n d tiwari his mother kamla devi was minister in up goverment for 9 years.he is not what rss propaganda says.

  20. Kashif United States Safari Mac OS says:

    @MilesToGo (October 29, 2012 at 4:18 am)

    //…compulsion is a wrong word to be associated with god – god has evaluated all the religions and chosen the best, so god wants everybody to follow it, god’s will is supreme…why would god want anybody to stay kuffar, that is blasphemous…its a corrupted verse, we need to get rid of all the corrupted verses and all the jahil arabic pagan practices like worshipping kabba, praying 5 times, growing beards etc. god does not need slaves…//

    The actual words of this verse are : “laa ikraaha fid deen” [Quran 2:256]. The word “ikraah” can be translated as “compulsion”, “coercion” and “force”. Therefore, what this verse signifies is that God does not allow one human to subject another to either compulsion or coercion or force in matters of belief and faith. The adoption of a certain set of beliefs is left to the individual’s discretion by God, according to the Quran. In several verses of the Quran, it is stated that had God so willed, He had the power to make everyone a believer, but He didn’t. Why? It’s because He wanted man to freely make His own choices, right or wrong.

  21. MilesToGo United States Safari Mac OS says:

    God wants everyone to follow Islam and lean Arabic because Islam is best of all the religions and if God says so – it has to be – God does not lie – everyone knows that – also God chose Arabic that implies that Arabic has to be better than other languages – or else God would not have chosen that. God is very intelligent.

    If God wants everyone to be Muslim then everyone will be Muslim because God loves everyone. Why would God want anybody to stay kuffar and then burn their skin in hell fire. God is most merciful. God does not any one to be kuffar because that is the worst thing a human being can be, its even worse than being pigs. God’s will is supreme.

    If God wanted people to stay kuffar, then it will be a false God. Real God will boil the crap out of kuffar.

  22. Milestogo United States Safari iPhone says:

    “No compulsion” verse is a false verse that kuffar put in there. Similarly worshipping kabba is a Arabic pagan practice and should be immediately banned per Islamic enlightenment. Intact the last of the idols in Kaaba and kabba itself should be destroyed as god destroyed all the other idols.
