This was a planned execution by the talban in order to punish Malalas blogging activites and resistance against Taliban. She publicly spoke against the group and fought for education for girls and women. Malala survived the attack and has become an icon and important symbol of human rights and freedom og speech. In 2013 she was nominated for the Nobel Peace price. This piece is directly inspired by the incident and dedicated this incredible brave activist and a role model for future generations to come.
