Instead, they make political capital from criticising the drone program operated by the United States which targets terrorists in FATA.

Many of you have been shocked by the story of Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year old Pakistani girl shot in the head by a Taliban terrorist because of a blog she wrote and interviews she gave starting in 2009, criticizing the Taliban and calling for the education of women.

If she does not, it will be an enormous loss for Pakistan and for the world.
