We must talk to the Taliban to get peace: Malala


Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teenager, shot in the head by the Taliban for championing girls’ rights to education has said talks with the militants are needed for peace.

In her first in-depth interview since the attack, Malala told the BBC that discussions with the Taliban were needed to achieve peace.

“The best way to solve problems and to fight against war is through dialogue,” she said.

“That’s not an issue for me, that’s the job of the government… and that’s also the job of America.”

In July, plans for talks involving the Taliban, the US and the Afghan government were frustrated by a row over the status of the Taliban’s newly opened office in Doha, Qatar.

Malala said it was important that the Taliban discussed their demands.

“They must do what they want through dialogue,” she said.

“Killing people, torturing people and flogging people… it’s totally against Islam. They are misusing the name of Islam.”


  1. Great lady ambassador championing the struggle against Taliban, Malala is being considered for Nobel prize , InashAllah she will wins. Those who care for her cause can donate on line to Malala fund to help her spread her message . Proud of this brave young muslim lady. May Allah protect her- Ameen.

  2. Yes people of Swat did talk to them and what happened. Its easier said than done whole sitting in peace in UK.

    • Zahid, it will also be easier for you to sit in peace in england and speak , as soon as you get brave enough to stand up and speak against Taliban and get shot in the head.

  3. Now anything Malala says becomes important lol.Yes she is a brave young lady,I commend her for her courage but she has no clue to what needs to be done,she needs to worry about going to school and getting her education and leave making comments on politics and in general to the grown ups.She is lucky to have got shot and survived,many didn't,there are a lot of Malalas in the world that didn't make it,lets not forget about them.

    • Anon- She did get her Polio vaccination in England, because the one she had gotten in Pkistan just like you got was a fake.

  4. wow, a 16 year old girl is going to control the whole situation, let me remind you all that she isn't the only one that got shot or has been attacked, we've lost millions of people and none of them got attention but this girl? why? if the UN and every other premier of different states really care so much then they should nominate everyone who have lost their lives for a nobel prize right? cz they've suffered the same malala has? what ever happened with malala was not fair to her and she did not deserve it but lets not forget she is the only one.
