In 2012, while on a bus home after taking an exam, Malala and two other girls were shot by a Taliban gunman in an assassination attempt in response to her activism. The attack led to an international outcry. The 21-year-old now lives in Birmingham.

Malala is a classic example of a West-backed, agenda-driven PSYOP. A complete fraud intended to give the 'Allies' an excuse to continue their occupation of Afghanistan. She was used in the same way as the girl who 'witnessed' Saddam Hussain's alleged atrocities in Kuwait. Her father too just happened to be a diplomat involved with the USA..
