Pak to give embassy job to Malala`s father in UK
Islamabad: The father of 15-year-old Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban and eventually flown to Britain for treatment, is likely to get a job at the Pakistan High Commission in London so that he along with his family could stay abroad for a few years.
According to sources in the Interior Ministry, Ziauddin Yousufzai was planning to apply for asylum in the United Kingdom, which could have got more embarrassing for Pakistan, after the Malala case, reports The News.
Sources said that Interior Minister Rehman Malik has assured Yousufzai of a job at the Pakistan High Commission in London. Malik, however, said he has assured that Yousufzai won`t apply for asylum there.
Yousufzai, his wife and their two sons flew to the UK on October 25 to be with Malala.
"Malala is healing and it may take several months for her complete recovery therefore by offering the job to Ziauddin Yousufzai in Pakistan HC in UK, the family would be able to live there for next few years," the sources further said.
Malala, who had advocated girls` right to education, was shot in the neck and head and two other girls sustained injuries when the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) opened fire on their school van in Swat valley on October 09. She was flown to Britain for specialised treatment on October 15.
