Malala Yousufzai dischargedMalala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban, has been discharged from the Birmingham hospital where she was being treated.

Brave Malala Yousafzai, 15, was gunned down for demanding education for girls and was flown to the UK for surgery in October and went under the knife at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Malala will continue rehabilitation at her family’s temporary West Midlands home. She will undergo further reconstructive treatment on her injured skull in the coming weeks.

Dave Rosser, medical director at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS foundation trust quoted by Guardian said “Malala is a strong young woman and has worked hard with the people caring for her to make excellent progress in her recovery. Following discussions with Malala and her medical team, we decided that she would benefit from being at home with her parents and two brothers. She will return to the hospital as an outpatient and our therapies team will continue to work with her at home to supervise her onward care.”

The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan said it shot Malala, a campaigner for girls’ education, for “promoting secularism”.

She was shot in her head and chest by unknown gunmen while she was returning home from school in the north-easern Swat district on 9 October.

She was admitted to the hospital on 15 October 2012, six days after she was wounded in a school bus shooting which provoked worldwide condemnation and revulsion. She had also highlighted Taliban atrocities in the Swat valley and, when younger, kept a diary for the BBC’s Urdu service.

  1. Ahh yes , religion , with you darkage ideas of trying to control people into being interlectiual slaves , just because you don’t want people in the world to have free minds

  2. The issue of Malala has played an incredible role in uniting the nation against terrorism. The cause of Malala for promoting girl’s education has spread wings to other part of the country too. Every Pakistani is praying for the health of this courageous daughter and I hope and pray she gets well soon.
