Malala’s doctors refuses Pakistani politician visit request
Malala Yousafzai who is recovering in Birmingham‘s Queen Elizabeth Hospital met her family recently. Malala family was delighted to see her making progress. They thanked her doctors and hospital staff for taking good care of her. But Malala’s family members were not the only visitors that came by to Queen Elizabeth Hospital to see her. Many Pakistani politicians have also visited the hospital for a photo opportunity to boast their hollow commitment against Taliban atrocities back home. But Malala’s doctors have rightly turned them away citing that she needs time to rest and recover. The visitor’s list included big names like Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, Rehman Malik, Farooq Sattar, Mian Iftikhar Hussein and even a UAE minister.
There are countless young girls like Malala Yousafzai across Taliban’s affected tribal areas that are in dire need of protection, education, health and dignity to live life peacefully. There is no point of visiting 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai by anyone from Pakistan especially these shameless corrupt politicians. They are not doctors, surgeons or physiologist who can help Malala in any capacity. They should concentrate more time and efforts on eliminating Taliban and growing extremism back at home instead of blowing money on airfares and hotel stays. And possibly all these politicians and ministers boarding and lodging & traveling expenses are paid by Pakistani taxpayers instead of them.
These corrupt politicians and minister are one of the main reasons of these growing radicalization and extremism in Pakistan. They spend their energies in piling public money in their bank accounts instead of doing their job of developing their country. The only reason of flying to UK is to avail a sheer photo op with Malala Yousafzai so that they have something to brag about, sitting with their friends, sipping tea etc in their cozy drawing rooms. Salute to young Malala Yousafzai who was shot on head for advocating girl’s education and raising voice against terrorism and atrocities of Taliban. Little voice of the young blogger is turn out to be louder and stronger than false claims, lies and sham rhetoric of these damn politicians.
