Just saw the speech given by the father of Malala. I was very moved by what he said. What a wonderful family. It is also beautiful to see a Muslim family where the girl is the centre of attention which I think means a lot in a society where often sons are preferred. Sad that it had to happen this way and we can only hope that it will mark a sea-change in the Islamic world to have more respect for women. I wish Malala a speedy recovery and hope that she will grow to be a strong voice for women in Islam.
