A quote from Malala …

From the book, ‘I am Malala – The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban’

“My father told me about a woman who had donated generously to the Taliban while her husband was working abroad. When he came back and found out that she had given away her gold he as furious. One night there was a small explosion in their village and the wife cried. ‘Don’t cry’, said her husband. ‘That is the sound of your earrings and nose studs. Now listen to the sound of your lockets and bangles.’ ”

A very chilling account about the true rise of the Taliban, starting with the turn of the opinions of the locals.
