A Girl Who Survived Bullet to the Head From the Taliban Has an Unexpected Message for Trump

Though Donald Trump has been faced with a long list of politicians speaking out against his proposed Muslim travel ban, he’s now be faced with a critic of an entirely different kind.

This new critic comes in the form of a cultural icon and the youngest person to ever receive a Nobel Peace Prize – Malala Yousafzai – who was shot in the head by the Taliban as a result of her fight to allow girls to receive the same education as boys in Pakistan.

Her recent comments on the “wild things” politicians are saying about Muslims, which were made during an interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4, are said to shut down the candidate “in the best possible way.”

When asked how she thinks such “wild” comments by politicians should be handled, Yousafzai warned:

“It’s important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it.

If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism. It will radicalize more terrorists.”

She added that “the more you speak about Islam and against all Muslims, the more terrorists we create.”

During an event memorializing 134 Pakistani children that were killed when the Taliban attacked a school in December 2014 , Yousafzai had some more direct words when asked about Mr. Trump’s stance:

“Well, that’s really tragic that you hear these comments which are full of hatred, full of this ideology of being discriminative towards others.”

While Trump’s comments – which were made in the wake of the deadly attacks carried out in San Bernardino by a radical Muslim couple – were meant solely as proposal for the U.S., they have undoubtedly reverberated throughout the global Muslim community.
