Multan: Member of National Assembly Jamshed Dasti is reported to have said that Malala Yousufzai, the young Pakistani educational activist is no more than a drama staged by the United States to delay the peace talks with Taliban, the Islamic militant group that the government intends to, for the restoration of peace in the country.
During a press conference held in Multan, Dasti expressed these views while talking to the media. He talked about the nomination of the Swati girl’s for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, which she however failed to achieve.
The MNA sees to Malala as an agent used by the United States against Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP), as the country does not want Pakistan to enter into peaceful talks and negotiations with them. She speaks ill of the Islamist group while talks good of the US. He believes that the girl had done nothing special for which she is being given prestige and honor on the local and international level.
Dasti, an independent candidate on the occasion further spoke that politicians and media need to look towards the issues of Pakistan rather than focusing on the teenage girl only. He expressed satisfaction for the failure of Malala to win over the Nobel Prize which reflects his sentiments to be similar of the Islamic militant group, TTTP.
Malala last year had been shot in her head in a school van on October 9, to which the TTTP had claimed responsibility. After the incident, she has emerged as an international icon. Presently she resides in Britain along with her family, where she had been taken for the medical treatment after the incident happened.
