He Named Me Malala Official Trailer 1 (2015)        Video        Documentary HD        19 June 2015

 

HE NAMED ME MALALA

is an intimate portrait

of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai,

who was targeted by the Taliban

and severely wounded by a gunshot

when returning home on her school bus

in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.

 

The then 15-year-old (she turns 18 this July)

was singled out, along with her father,

for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her

sparked an outcry from supporters around the world.

 

She miraculously survived

and is now a leading campaigner

for girls’ education globally

as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

“honour code” /  “honour” killings

 

The tribal areas in North and South Waziristan,

which borders Afghanistan,

are known for the strict “honour code” imposed on women,

whose movements are heavily restricted

and who are often not allowed out of the house unaccompanied.

Malala Yousafzai

 

Malala Yousafzai

is a (...) Pakistani schoolgirl

who was shot in the head

by the Taliban in October 2012

in retaliation for her work in promoting

girls’ education and children’s rights

in the northwestern Swat Valley,

near the Afghan border.

 

Ms. Yousafzai

was shot by a gunman

who had singled her out

as she returned home

from school in Mingora,

the main town in the valley.

 

Initially, she was treated

at a military hospital in Peshawar,

where surgeons removed a bullet

that had passed through her head

and lodged in her shoulder.

 

Two days later,

she was airlifted

to an army hospital

in Rawalpindi,

near the headquarters

of the Pakistani Army.

was kept in solitary confinement on death row

after being convicted of blasphemy in Pakistan

over an argument about a cup of water.

 

Now,

after her acquittal eight years later,

she is in fear for her life.

Samar Minallah Khan        USA

 

Khan's films focus primarily

on the practice of swara,

where a daughter is given away

as compensation for a crime.

 

Swara happens mainly

in poor, rural areas.

The Taliban's attempt

to kill a 14-year-old girl,

famous for speaking out

against the Islamic militants

and their attacks

on girls' education,

has triggered a wave

of national revulsion

in Pakistan.
