The news is that, Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban in the head has received another yet the biggest European human rights prize called "Sakharov" which is one of the major prizes got by many other international personalities such as South Africa's Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi from Burma, while Malala is the first Pakistani who got this prize. She is the youngest person who got this prize.
The European Parliament President, Martin Schulz, presented the award to the 16-year-old activist who already got many awards in the past. Here is the picture of the moment when Malala got the award in Strasbourg, France today.
The teen girl was already nominated for "Nobel Peace Prize" this year, but she didn't not receive the Nobel Prize, however, she received many other international awards such as women of the year 2013 by Glamour, Women's rights award "Raw & War" and many more which we can't count.
On the occasion the smart lady said that, it courges her more to have such great honors. She said, the importance of this prize is very closer to my heart because I am now in the row with Nelson Mandela, a great human activist.
There are millions of girls across the world aren't eligible to join school due to different situations, there are girls who can't get higher education due to early marriages, there are girls who are threatened, there are girls who are tortured. Malala added.
She moreover said, the powerful nations are not those who have weapons, guns and bombs, in her opinion the powerful nations are those who have educated society, human morals, education for everyone and equal rights for both genders female and male.
The world and developed countries have to help Pakistan and other developing countries to increase the literacy rate and reduce the poverty which is the major reason why girls are not getting education, she added more.
