UN appoints Malala's father as an Education adviser

Ziauddin Yusufzai

Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for global Education broadcasted the appointment of Ziauddin Yusufzai as the UN education advisor. His task is to see that every female child gets the right to education by the end of 2015. He is the father of Malala Yousafzai, the 15 year old brave girl who raised her voice to make education for girls compulsory in the area that is under the control of the talibans.

It has been estimated that more than 32 million girls are deprived from going to school. Yusufzai has taken up the challenge to abolish this injustice done to girls and has promised to give a new face to the education discipline in the country.

Gordon Brown had requested all adherent of girl’s education to stand up for the auspicious event of appointment of Yusufzai. They had met in Paris for the big event with UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova and President Zardari of Pakistan.

Brown also claimed that the courageous decision of the girl has encouraged everyone to spread education for every single girl child all over the world. He also made it sure that whichever country is lagging behind in this kind of commitment, he would take a step to solve the problem.

The Talibans had destroyed 600 schools as they felt girls did not have the right to education. When Malala protested against this she was brutally shot by a gunman when she was traveling by bus to school.

She did not fear at all when the gun man had inquired for her but bravely proclaimed who she was and was shot for no big crime but for a human right that she deserved. Taliban’s plan was to conquer her voice so that she could not stand up for her right in the future anymore.

The Taliban’s shot her but failed to completely kill her and this has now given courage to every girl child in Pakistan to stand up for their educational right. They are now confident that the government will take a step to improve the educational scenario in this country.

Now, Ziauddin Yousafzai has become a special educational activist and he makes it sure that every girl child has access to proper education worldwide. Malala have decided to join the campaign once she recovers. It has been also declared that on Malala’s birthday i.e. next July 12th she will ask children walk out on to the streets to protest against the heartless Taliban people who had destroyed the school decorum.
