Vote for Pakistan, appeals Malala Yousufzai
Islamabad: One vote can change Pakistan`s future and "it`s our right", teen activist Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, said Saturday, a day when ballotting took place in the country.
In a letter carried by the Dawn, Malala said, "It`s an honour for me to share some words with my sisters and brothers in my country."
"If we want education, electricity and natural gas in our country, we must take a step.
"Let`s vote for our country. We never realized how much powerful our vote is. One vote can change our future," she said.
She stressed that "it`s our vote that chooses which politicians will govern our motherland. I request all my sisters and mothers to move forward, go to polling station and vote. It`s our right".
"And one day, a change will come. All girls and boys will be going to schools and there will be peace everywhere."
Malala was shot by a Taliban assassin as she took a bus home from school in Pakistan`s northwest region in October 2012. She was flown to Britain shortly after the attack and was treated at Birmingham`s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
