Noble Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai appeared on the episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman and well much serious discussion went down in the episode that we need to talk about:
The episode started with David Letterman inviting Malala Yousufzai on stage. As she was seated comfortably in her chair on stage with thousands of people’s eyes on her, Letterman didn’t hesitate to ask her the first question about what would have happened if he had not survived the shot in her head by the Taliban? The brave 20 year old, Nobel Prize winner did not hesitate one bit in answering, as i quote “I would hope that many people would have stood up against those extremists and not just the extremists, but against the ideology”. She went on to add that its mainly such toxic ideology against women that needs to be fought against to give women the rights they deserve, the right to education, the right to secure life and the right to freedom.
Most of the interview with Letterman talked about Malala’s generous goals to ensure education and security for women everywhere and to put an end to honor killings. Malala also talked about her plans to return to Mingora and well of course, the ban Donald Trump so shamelessly imposed on the Muslims.
As Malala found her herself going deeper into the details of the day she was shot, she talked about how strange she felt when she woke up and found herself in a completely different country because before that all she remembered that she was going home on a bus with her friends. Frightening isnt it?
Moving onto the topic about what Malala thinks about forgiveness, she said that she believed that the best revenge is to forgive the enemy and that she has generously with a heavy heart forgave the people who attacked her.
On why education is important, in honor of women’s day, is that its the crucial factor for women in helping them secure their future and rights. Malala believes that if the government invests more money into education, more good can come out of it and that its high time that people start thinking about investing in women education, because all they need is an ambition and intention!
