I am not Malala — the money trail

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

MA­SOOD KHAN I don’t know why some of the Pak­ista­nis keep on prov­ing that it’s a Land of Pure and who­ever dif­fers with them is a traitor and a for­eign agent. They ex­pect a pin drop si­lence on un­doc­u­mented fund­ing of Pak­istan’ sem­i­nar­ies no mat­ter from where money flows. If ever try to bring their fi­nan­cial re­sources un­der spot­light, you are work­ing against Ide­ol­ogy of Pak­istan, Is­lam and Mus­lim Ummah and what not.

Now the same peo­ple who never ac­cepted that Malala was shot by Tal­iban, who al­ways ques­tioned her in­tel­lect to in­flu­ence the world, who while fail­ing on all fronts fi­nally de­clared her a planted CIA agent (never mind how CIA es­tab­lished and funded their sem­i­nar­ies in 80s and be­yond), are once again danc­ing with joy that Malala is now a mil­lion­aire— means she is a for­eign funded western agent!

Gates of ha­tred against Malala have been opened and the (un) so­cial me­dia is buzzing with one mantra — isn’t what we have been say­ing for that long? Never mind the com­pany ear­lier set up to pro­tect the copy rights of her life story — I am Malala, has earned around $3 mil­lion (pre-tax profit of $1.5 mil­lion), never mind she and her fam­ily has do­nated around $1 mil­lion to­wards char­i­ties across globe — hate mangers don’t know what else they can do with this news. One thing is sure she didn’t steal this money; at least she is not part of the civil­ian and mil­i­tary elites who made bil­lions, not mil­lions as corruption money in Balochis­tan wherein Quetta’ civil hospi­tal wards got flooded dur­ing re­cent rains! May I ques­tion where the money earned by hate mangers by pub­lish­ing — I am not Malala, is be­ing spent? — Saudi Arabia
