Quotes

"As I am a non-Muslim, my Muslim brothers used to look at me with disgust in their eyes. But one incident broke the roots of this hatred. The village sardar’s mother was very ill. His mother’s blood group was O negative and no one was a match I was shaking and scared but stepped forward and stated that I was ready to donate blood."
In her book I am Malala, she talks of how odd her Abba must feel in the altered reality: "I used to be known as his daughter; now he's known as my father." Perhaps there's a message here for all fathers in our son-obsessed subcontinent
Fayaz Ali Shah, Principal of the college, while talking to The Nation said, "Outsiders and former students are the main problem creators in the college."
