We watched Malala Yousafzai on The Daily Show Monday night and were in awe of how amazing she is.
Malala was the victim of an attempted assassination by the Taliban simply because she was trying to promote the education of girls and stop them from closing down schools etc.
Now, most of us know that doing this to women is COMPLETELY against Islam and what happened to Malala was horrific.
What struck us about this story was how humble and well spoken she is despite all that she has gone through. She isn’t trying to get revenge, but continues to promote the education of women.
She also has a book out and we can’t wait to read it!
If you missed The Daily Show you can watch the clips below there are 4 parts:
What do you think we can do to help promote the education of women around the world?
How can we as Muslims change the perception in villages around the world that promote the wrong message about women in Islam?
