People gather outside The Library of Birmingham on its opening day in Birmingham central England on September 3, 2013. The library was officially opened by Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani advocate for girls education who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012.

Malala has done us proud. Doing her part in the cause of girl's right to education with dignity and grace. Any father would be proud to have a daughter like her. British people deserve to be thanked for being so gracious.

The Britishers and USA are trying to make Be-Nazir out of Malala. Good luck gentlemen.

Malala is European. She has a British passport and subscribes to the Western values such as individual freedom. So it is wrong to call her a Pakistani prodigy, she is British.

She is really brave to stand for Pakistani girls' education rights, in spite of nearly being killed by terrorists. BTW, baby fat on her cheeks suggest that she is enjoying British cuisine. :)
