Malala Yousafzai discharged from hospital


Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in Swat for advocating education for girls, was discharged from Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham, the hospital sources confirmed.
Malala, 15, was brought to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on October 15 after a Taliban gunman shot her in the head as she travelled on a school bus in Swat.
According to reports, Malala will now continue her rehabilitation at her family’s temporary home in the West Midlands.
Her cranial reconstruction surgery will be carried out in late January or early February “as part of her long-term recovery”, said a statement released by the Pakistani High Commission in London.
Dave Rosser, medical director at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said Malala had “continued to make great progress in her treatment”, according to the statement.
Meanwhile, Malala is now likely to secure permanent residence in the UK after her father was granted a job with the Pakistani consulate in Birmingham.
Ziauddin Yousafzai has been appointed education attache for three years, with the option of an extension for a further two years afterwards. Both he and his daughter have had threats against their lives by the Taliban since the shooting. Malala’s British doctors have been delighted with her ongoing recovery.


  1. The prayers have been answered but recovery continues.

    Reconstructive surgery will help to correct mild to moderate disfigurement.The sad fact is that the recovery can take between 2- 5 years and she may have enduring changes in her personality and behavior.
