Malala Says Boko Haram Ought to Study The Religion They Claim to Support

Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, has also lent her voice to the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, calling for the rescue of more than 200 school girls kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Borno state by Boko haram insurgents.

Known as a famous advocate for girls’ right to education, Malala in an exclusive interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour said that "girls in Nigeria are my sisters." She says that Boko Haram, which kidnapped nearly 300 girls in Nigeria, do not understand Islam. "I think they haven’t studied Islam yet, they haven’t studied Quran yet, and they should go and they should learn Islam," she said. "I think that they should think of these girls as their own sisters. How can one imprison his own sisters and treat them in such a bad way?"

Malala survived an assassination attempt by the Pakistani Taliban in her native country in 2012. She was targeted because of our outspoken support for girls' education. But she continues to speak up, fighting for girls' rights to education around the world.
