The name of Malala Yousafzai is household is bestowed with many honors and the greatest of all is the Nobel Prize for peace. Her role as teenage girl presented for efforts against Taliban that she played for girls’ education who prohibited their right. Through this article, it will be analyze that whether her role is politicize for specific reasons or she has genuinely worked for her cause. Education is compulsory for every human being whether man or woman and government of Pakistan acknowledges such right. The article 25-A of the constitution of Pakistan states, ‘the state shall provide free and compulsory education to all children from the age of five to sixteen in such manner as may be determined by law’. The government of Pakistan seems responsive towards its constitutional obligation. Hence, a certain section of Pakistani society disapprove her due to her association with west while another segment supports her efforts. Since the creation of Pakistan, several philanthropists have spent their lives for the betterment of their nation and their work has become identity of Pakistan in abroad so, why Malala decided to leave Pakistan? It is the question emerge in mind of every Pakistani and sometimes it is believe that her entire humanitarian works is a stage show. As far as female education is concerned, it is a comprehensive term in Pakistani society and a specific class use it as a political gain otherwise the overall conditions of women in Pakistan are not bad.
