Nobel Laureate-activist Malala Yousafzai has reacted sharply to the threats made by Tehreek-e-Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan.
Ehsan, who escaped prison, tweeted “Come back home, we have a score to settle”. Later, he added, “this time there will be no mistake”.
“This is the ex-spokesperson of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan who claims responsibility for the attack on me and many innocent people. He is now threatening people on social media. How did he escape?” asked Malala in response.
Ehsan’s tweet left everyone in shock. Although his account was removed from Twitter, people were surprised how he was allowed to have an account in the first place.
The Taliban shot Malala in the head for campaigning for girls’ education in Pakistan. The Taliban released a statement saying if she survives, they will attack her again.
Malala moved to Britain after her recovery and set up the Malala Fund to support local education advocacy groups with a focus on Nigeria, Pakistan, Syria, Jordan, and Kenya. Yousafzai, who currently lives in the United Kingdom, completed her degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics at Britain’s prestigious Oxford University.
