Is Malala the last ‘Triumph Card’ for Obama?

Malala Yousafzai

Over the past two weeks, a lot has been said, heard, written and projected about an innocent girl the entire world now knows as Malala Yousafzai. The 14-year-old was the one whom the Taliban were alleged of attempting to assassinate by shooting her alongside her other fellow students while they travelled back home from their school. The worldwide attention Malala received amid the tragic incident, eventually forced many Pakistanis as well as countless people from around the globe including top politicians and top publications to ‘seriously think.’

The incident also raised doubts in the minds of Pakistanis especially whether why the girl is being given worldwide attention? What could be the possible objective(s) of the ‘people’ or ‘group(s)’ of people behind this?

Earlier, the US President Barack Obama played his ‘Osama’ card very well and well in time; knowing the ‘importance’ of the same in context with the forthcoming elections. Now, the Malala incident leaves little doubts behind that Barack Obama may have ‘staged’ this ‘drama’ with purpose; to gain popularity among his rivals; by providing ‘solid’ reasons to:

  • Continue with his Drone Attack policy
  • Depict a scenario before the entire world that ‘Waziristan Operation’ is ‘unavoidable’
  • Divert the attention of Pakistani people from the issues such as the highly controversial blasphemous movie and the extremely insulting cartoons of Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.), etc.

A recent ‘Peace March’ led by Imran Khan, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader, had certainly left a ‘clear’ message for the US President and his men that Pakistani Nation has finally stood against the so called Drone Attacks; which result in killing innocent people more; the ‘target(s)’ less! It would not be out of place to mention here that Imran was not the only one to raise his voice against America’s strict and aggressive policies with regards to ‘fight against terrorism’ in Pakistani territory.

There are several other politicians and key personnel from both the ruling party and the opposition who are now speaking openly against America’s ‘unnecessary’ interests and interference, even in their country’s very personal affairs. Give some weight to the words of Farid Ahmed Paracha, the Jamaat-e-Islami leader who very recently said that all America wanted from Malala Incident, was to defame Islam, defame Muslim jihad, justify USA’s proposed (rather forced) North Waziristan Operation. Farid clearly said the attack on Malala and her fellow students; was planned and staged by the US.

Should we simply close our eyes over the claims of CIA and Black Water’s involvement in numerous incidents taking place in Pakistan? Or should we close our eyes and ears over the Press TV’s claims that the teenager under treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is a US Spy? In the first place, Taliban ‘Did Not’ attacked the girls but if the US insists; then did Malala really betrayed mujahedeen by divulging their ‘secrets’ to the people she worked for; her US Masters?

Over the past 10 years or so, hundreds of other innocent people have been maimed by both the Taliban and the drone attacks, including countless girls of Malala’s age. Now what on the earth was the reason that ‘forced’ Taliban to remove Malala from the scene?

The has covered the burning issue completely over the past almost two weeks and has tried to bring only the truth to its valuable and knowledgeable readers. The soul focus of today’s report is again to let our readers know; the girl whom her Briton physicians said were upbeat on her condition; certainly has ‘significant’ importance; in the eyes of both; the Taliban and the US!

As the author of this article did, many others must have also been able to notice that the evident ‘Wound Marks’ Malala had on her face; were gone the moment she was admitted at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital! A miracle or……? Pay some attention readers; you may find countless ‘signs’ that only one country seems to have ‘special benefits’ associated with this entire story; the United States of America!

The October 9 attack on the girls’ school van did outrage the entire world, agreed, but please try to look into the matter deeply for which you do not need ‘sight beyond sight’ and we are sure you will agree that it was a series of fabricated events, very well planned!

    Nadeem Iftikhar is absolutely wrong his assumptions that Malala’s incident was planned. The crafty tabloid mentality exhibited by his tirade. America does not stand to derive any advantage from this violent episode.
