The 19-year-old UK-based Pakistani instruction dissident, in a video message stated, “Today I got the news of Mashal Khan’s demise. This occurrence is loaded with dread and savagery. I have addressed his dad who gave the message of peace and persistence. I acknowledge and salute his message of tolerance and peace”.
“We gripe that there is Islamophobia, nations are discoloring the name of our nation. Nobody is decreasing Pakistan and Islam, we ourselves are discoloring the name of Pakistan and Islam. We ourselves are in charge of discoloring the picture of Pakistan,” Malala said.
