Social Media and our Little Malala
When Taliban took over Swat-Malakand Region of northwest pakistan in 2008, the girls were forced to stay inside and not attend their schools. A 10 years old little girl decided to talk about her inexperience through blog writings on BBC under the Pseudonym of Gul Makai. She talked about the education and its state under Taliban and their regressive regime. When the Pakistan forces cleared the area, she became popular for her writings and people came to know that Gul Makai was actually a child of 11 years only named Malala Yousafzai. Malala shot to fame for her courage and bravery. She openly came on media and spoke against the treatment of girls under Taliban.
