Quit dream of being PM, says Malala

Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai termed politics a “complicated matter” and said she has quit her desire to be the prime minister of Pakistan.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, the youngest Noble laureate said she had dreamed of being the prime minister from the age of 11.  “I felt that by being the prime minister, I could resolve the issues of the country, but this is not a reality,” she said.

According to Malala, change can be brought by any method and added that she would continue her work by becoming a doctor or an engineer.


She also disclosed that she keeps an eye on politics in Pakistan and said that politicians must improve their priorities.

Malala, elaborating further, said political parties in the country should prioritse health and education, as it the basic right of every citizen rather than hurling abuses at each other.

Malala further said today’s Pakistan is different from the Pakistan of 2012 and she is happy over the restoration of peace in the country.

Referring to the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL), the youngest Noble laureate said that though she was supporting Peshawar Zalmi, Islamabad United deserved to win.

Talking about ‘Malala haters’, she said they were a small percentage of the country’s population and the country loves her and her purpose, adding that she would like the people to understand her and educate their children.

She also added that she believes in education for girls and stated that she was neither an agent nor standing with any foreign powers. The Army and the government helped and facilitated her safe return to Pakistan, she said while talking about her trip to the country.

The youngest Nobel laureate said she would return to Pakistan after completing her education.
