Taliban urge Malala to come back, join madrassa


Days after Malala Yousufzai made a passionate appeal at the UN for the education of children, the Taliban on Wednesday asked the teenage activist to return to Pakistan and join a madrassa in the restive northwest.

Adnan Rashid, a Taliban fighter wanted for an attempt to assassinate former President Pervez Musharraf, wrote a letter to Malala, who was shot in the head in a militant attack last year.

“I advise you to come back home, adopt the Islamic and Pashtun culture, join any female Islamic madrassa near your hometown, study and learn the book of Allah, use your pen for Islam and the plight of Muslim Ummah and reveal the conspiracy of the tiny elite who want to enslave the whole humanity for their evil agendas in the name of a new world order,” Rashid wrote.

The over 2,000-word letter was dated July 15 but it was not immediately clear from where it was issued. It was released to the media on Wednesday.

Rashid, a former air force personnel, tried to justify the attack on 16-year-old Malala by claiming that she was involved in an “anti-Taliban campaign”.

“Taliban never attacked you because of going to school or you were an education lover; also please mind that Taliban or mujahideen are not against the education of any men or women or girls,” he wrote.

“Taliban believe that you were intentionally writing against them and running a smear campaign to malign their efforts to establish Islamic system in Swat and your writings were provocative,” he added.


  1. So nobody has a right to disagree with the taliban, well isn't that kind of them, kill you if you don't fit in, enough is enough, no religion should run a country or any government, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, separation of church and state is the way it should be.

    • While I agree that separation of Church and State is a desirable objective, fact is that in Pakistan's case, it is an option long abandoned by self serving political elites

  2. I hope Malala does not go back to Pakistan until she has completed her education…the worst thing she could do is to waste her time on Madrassah education in Pakistan…everyone knows the curriculum there is not good and there is so much more to learn in this world than just religion..religion is a part of life but it should not be all of life …but that is the lesson that Pakistan has not yet learned….

    • my dear islam is the complete code of life and it guide us in every field of life so why we accept that religion is just the part of our life…we muslims are not liberal and ecular minded…hope you understand….

      • u people destroyed pakistan,,this is 21st century,,dis mullas destroyed pakistan,future more and more attack we can see in pakistan against women and innocents,islam is just religion not life,if u r interestd in religion go taliban and be a suicide bomber ,you will get heaven aftr death.u people made pakistan the dangerous place on earth

  3. I am sure that Malala is not impressed. one day they try to kill her, a the next they want to enslave her in the name of Pushtu values. The key point here is that the Taliban see nothing wrong with continuing ancient pre-Islamic even pre Christian era practices, even if they fly in the face of true Islamic values.
    The world and the vast majority of Muslims have moved on from the dark ages the Taliban wish to drag us back into.

  4. .
    Beg for forgiveness …
    Not interested in any other word from you or your gang …

  5. taliban do not fell any sham or regrets. they are confident that they are right. correct. ultimate truth. final. in such situation ……what to say? i guess nothing. but they will ultimately damaging Islam.

  6. Islam is a complete way of life and it is the best, Islam never says to not be educated and it even says that go to all corners of the world to get education. now these people who have hijacked islam and think that they are the ones to decide who is going to heaven and who to hell are wrong. Isalm is a religion which teaches every one to live in peace and also gives you the guidance of how to live a life which is in balance. Isalm never says to leave the world and just sit in the jungle and prey.
    it always guides you to be normal prey and be honest and merciful. so these people who claim to be islamist first should see what they are doing sending suicide bomber to a mosque to kill muslims is WRONG and Isalm does not allow that.

    “…and reveal the conspiracy of the TINY ELITE who want to enslave the whole humanity for their evil agendas in the name of a NEW WORLD ORDER.”
    tiny elite = Illuminati / Dajjal-e-Gorow
    Taliban are working for Illuminati / Dajjal-e-Gorow themselves.Taliban are bringing New World Order by killing a heavy population according to the New World Order conspiracy in the name of Islam,because Islam is the only threat to Illuminati / Dajjal-e-Gorow.Also Illuminati is providing all the weapons to Taliban.
    Taliban are working for Illuminati / Dajjal-e-Gorow to bring New World Order before the advent of Dajjal / Antichrist,the false messiah.
