CHEERS AND APPLAUSE NICE TO SEE YOU. CHEERS AND APPLAUSE THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. gtgt THANK YOU SO MUCH. IT’S AN HONOR FOR ME. gtgt Jon IT’S AN HONOR FOR US. I KNOW ME. THIS IS BY THE WAY, WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT BEFORE THE SHOW. NOTHING FEELS BETTER THAN MAKING YOU LAUGH. I WILL SAY THAT.

I ENJOYED THAT VERY MUCH. gtgt THANK YOU. gtgt Jon I AM MALALA. IT’S HONESTLY HUMBLING TO MEET YOU. YOU ARE 16. WHERE DID YOUR LOVE FOR EDUCATION COME FROM gtgt WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND THIS IS THE PART OF OUR HUMAN NATURE THAT WE DON’T LEARN THE IMPORTANCE OF ANYTHING UNTIL IT’S SNATCHED FROM OUR HANDS. AND WHEN IN PAKISTAN WHEN WE WERE STOPPED FROM GOING TO SCHOOL AT THAT TIME I REALIZED THAT EDUCATION IS VERY IMPORTANT AND EDUCATION IS A POWER FOR WOMEN. AND THAT’S WHY THE TERRORISTS ARE AFRAID OF EDUCATION.

THEY DON’T WANT WOMEN TO GET EDUCATION BECAUSE WOMEN WILL BECOME MORE POWERFUL. CHEERS AND APPLAUSE gtgt Jon EXACTLY RIGHT. CHEERS AND APPLAUSE WHEN DID THE WHEN DID THE TALIBAN COME TO SWAT VALLEY BECAUSE BEFORE THEN YOU DESCRIBE IT AS A PARADISE OF SORTS. gtgt A TALIBAN CAME IN 2004 BUT AT THAT TIME THEY WERE QUITE GOOD. THEY DID NOT SHOW THE TERRORISM AND THEY DID NOT BLAST ANY SCHOOL AT THAT TIME. THEY STARTED WITH THE REAL TERRORISM IN 2007 THEY BLASTED MORE THAN 400 SCHOOLS IN SWAT.

The Daily Show Malala Yousafzai Extended Interview

THEY SLAUGHTERED PEOPLE AND IN THE MONTH OF JANUARY 2009, THEY USED TO SLAUGHTER EVEN TWO THREE PEOPLE EVERY NIGHT AND THEY FLOGGED THEM AND WE HAVE SEEN THE BARBARIC SITUATION OF THE 21ST CENTURY. AND WE’VE SEEN LIKE THE CRUELTY AND WE’VE SEEN HARSH DAYS IN OUR LIFE. AND THOSE ARE REGARDED AS THE DARKEST DAYS OF OUR LIFE. IT WAS REALLY HARD FOR US AT THAT TIME. gtgt Jon YOU DESCRIBE IN THE BOOK STILL, NO MATTER WHAT, THEY TOOK THE SIGNS OFF THE SCHOOLS. THEY WENT UNDERGROUND BUT THEY CONTINUED IN THE FACE OF YOU.

SPOKE OUT PUBLICLY AGAINST THE TALIBAN. WHAT GAVE YOU THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE THIS gtgt YOU KNOW, MY FATHER WAS A GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT FOR ME BECAUSE HE SPOKE OUT FOR WOMENS’ RIGHTS, FOR GIRLS’ EDUCATION. AT THAT TIME I SAID WHY SHOULD I WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHY SHOULD I BE LOOKING TO THE GOVERNMENT, TO THE ARMY, THAT THEY WOULD HELP US WHY DON’T I RAISE MY VOICE WHY DON’T WE SPEAK FOR OUR RIGHTS I STARTED WRITING DIARY. I SPOKE ON EVERY MEDIA CHANNEL I COULD. I RAISE MY VOICE IN EVERY PLATFORM I COULD.

I SAID I NEED TO TELL THE WORLD WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SWAT AND I NEED TO TELL THE WORLD THAT SWAT IS SUFFERING FROM TERRORISM AND WE NEED TO FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM. gtgt Jon WHEN DID YOU REALIZE THAT THE TALIBAN HAD MADE YOU A TARGET gtgt WHEN IN 2012 I WAS WITH MY FATHER AND SOMEONE CAME AND TOLD US HAVE YOU SEEN ON GOOGLE IF YOU SEARCH YOUR NAME THAT THE TALIBAN HAS THREATENED YOU. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. I SAID IT’S NOT TRUE. EVEN AFTER WHEN WE SAW IT I WAS NOT WORRIED ABOUT MYSELF THAT.

MUCH I WAS WORRIED ABOUT MY FATHER. WE THOUGHT THAT THE TALIBAN ARE NOT THAT MUCH CRUEL THAT THEY WOULD KILL A CHILD. I STARTED THINKING ABOUT THAT AND THINKING THE TALIB WOULD COME AND HE WOULD KILL ME. I THOUGHT WHAT WOULD YOU DO MALALA, I THOUGHT TAKE A SHOE AND HIT HIM. BUT I THOUGHT IF YOU HIT A TALIB WITH YOUR SHOE THEN THERE’S NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND THE TALIB. YOU MUST NOT TREAT OTHERS WITH CRUELTY AND HARSHLY. YOU MUST FIGHT OTHERS BUT THROUGH PEACE, DIALOGUE AND EDUCATION.

THEN I TELL HIM HOW IMPORTANT EDUCATION IS AND I EVEN WANT EDUCATION FOR YOUR CHILDREN AS WELL AND I WILL TELL HIM THAT’S I WANT TO TELL YOU NOW DO WHAT YOU WANT. CHEERS AND APPLAUSE I KNOW YOUR FATHER IS BACK STAGE CHEERS AND APPLAUSE I KNOW YOUR FATHER IS BACK STAGE AND HE’S VERY PROUD OF YOU. BUT WOULD HE BE MAD IF I ADOPTED YOU BECAUSE YOU SURE ARE SWELL. COULD YOU STICK AROUND I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT SWAT VALLEY AND WHAT IT.

WAS LIKE GROWING UP THERE AND HOW PEOPLE CAN GET INVOLVED THROUGH THE MALALA FUND AND THOSE TYPES OF THINGS DO YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME gtgt YES, YEAH, SURE. gtgt Jon I AM MALALA IS ON SHELVES NOW. VISIT TO THE MALALA FUND. MALALA YOUSAFZAI. gtgt WONDERFUL TO LISTEN TO YOU TALK. WE’RE BACK. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE BOOK I AM MALALA. IT’S ON BOOKSHELVES RIGHT NOW. YOUR LOVE OF SCHOOL REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF MY CHILDREN. OKAY. MAYBE NOT. LAUGHTER THE PEOPLE OF SWAT VALLEY WHEN.

THE TALIB FIRST CAME, THEY THOUGHT, THEY ARE BRINGING ORDER. THEY ARE BRINGING SERVICES. THEY ESTABLISHED A COURT THAT WAS FASTER THAN PAKISTANI COURTS. gtgt YES. gtgt Jon AND THE PEOPLE RESPONDED. WHEN DID THAT BEGIN TO TURN gtgt WHEN THE TALIBAN CAME, THEY WERE TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE AND THEY WERE JUST MISUSING THE NAME OF ISLAM. THEY WERE TELLING PEOPLE WE WILL SET UP ANOTHER COURT FOR YOU AND PROVIDE YOU JUSTICE ON TIME. USUALLY COURTS IN PAKISTAN, PEOPLE DIE AND THEIR CASE IS NOT YET RESOLVED IN THE COURT.

BUT THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE COURTS OF PAKISTAN. SO PEOPLE JUST SAID IF THE TALIBAN ARE DOING IT, WHY DON’T WE SUPPORT THEM. THEN THEY WERE THAT MUCH CRUELER WHEN THEY STARTED SLAUGHTERING PEOPLE. THEY EVEN BLASTED A GENERATOR OF ELECTRICITY. AND IT WAS THE MOVE RAMADAN IN WHICH WE DON’T EAT ON THE DAY. IN WHICH WE DON’T DRINK FOR THE WHOLE DAY. THEY BLASTED ELECTRICITY GENERATORS PROVIDING ELECTRICITY TO THE WHOLE CITY. WE CANNOT HAVE WATER BECAUSE ELECTRICITY IS RELATED TO WATER SUPPLY AS WELL. PEOPLE WERE SITTING IN THE DARK.

PEOPLE COULD NOT BUY ELECTRICITY GENERATORS. PEOPLE WERE SITTING IN THE LIGHT OF CANDLES AND PEOPLE WERE JUST DYING OF THIRST AT THE TIME. MY FATHER IS A GREAT FATHER BECAUSE HE BOUGHT GENERATOR FOR THE SCHOOL TO CREATE ELECTRICITY AND PROVIDE WATER TO THE STREET AND THAT COMMUNITY. BUT STILL MANY PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING FROM THE HARD SITUATION. AND OTHER THAN THAT, OUR FREEDOM WAS TAKEN FROM US. gtgt Jon YES. gtgt THE WOMEN’S FREEDOM. WE COULD NOT GO TO MARKET. WE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO GO TO SCHOOL. WE WERE JUST KEPT IMPRISONED.

WE WERE LIMITED TO THE FOUR WALLS OF OUR HOUSE. WOMENS’ RIGHTS WERE DENIED AT THAT TIME AND THAT’S WHY I SPOKE BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN EQUALITY AND I BELIEVE THERE’S NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. I EVEN BELIEVE THAT A WOMAN IS MORE POWERFUL THAN MAN. gtgt Jon WHAT, WHOA WHAT CHEERS AND APPLAUSE CHEERS AND APPLAUSE WHOA! CHEERS AND APPLAUSE YOU KNOW, MALALA, THIS WAS GOING SO WELL. LAUGHTER YOU WERE DOING SO BEAUTIFULLY. LAUGHTER AND THEN SUDDENLY BAM! LAUGHTER IT’S THIS IS THE PART THAT.

THEY BEGAN TO SAY YOU CANNOT DANCE. gtgt YES. gtgt Jon YOU CANNOT THE WOMEN CANNOT DO THESE THINGS. YOU SAY THAT MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THIS IS A WRONG INTERPRETATION OF ISLAM, OF THE KORAN. DO YOU WHY HAVE THE TALIBAN AND THESE MORE EXTREME GROUPS BEEN ABLE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IS IT THE FEAR THAT THEY BRING TO THESE TOWNS DO THEY IS THAT WHY THE PEOPLE HAVE HAD A HARD TIME THROWING IT OFF gtgt THE FIRST THING IS THAT THEY WERE REALLY CRUEL. THEY HAD.

GUNS IN THEIR HANDS. IF I HAVE A GUN IN MY HAND AND I TELL YOU SOMETHING DO THIS, YOU HAVE TO DO THAT BECAUSE IT’S FOR YOUR LIFE. SO THERE WAS FEAR ALL AROUND. THAT’S WHY PEOPLE COULD NOT SAY ANYTHING. THEN THE SECOND THING THAT THEY WERE MISUSING THE NAME OF ISLAM. THEY WERE TELLING PEOPLE THEY ARE DOING THIS FOR ISLAM. THEY ARE DOING THIS FOR ALLAH AND THE PROPHET PEACE BE UPON HIM. THEY WERE USING RELIGION FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL BENEFITS. THIS IS ALSO THE REASON.

BUT THEN LATER ON PEOPLE TRY TO REALIZE THIS AND THE GIRLS ARE VERY BRAVE. GIRLS IN OUR SCHOOL. AT THAT TIME WE WERE JUST 11 OR 12 YEARS OLD BUT WE SPOKE OF OUR RIGHTS TO EVERY MEDIA CHANNEL AND NEWSPAPER WE COULD. WE DO NOT KNOW AT THIS TIME THAT OUR SMALL INTERVIEW WOULD HAVEAT AN IMPACT BUT IT HAD BECAUSE WE WERE RAISING UP OUR VOICE AND SPEAKING UP FOR OUR RIGHTS. AND WE WERE SPEAKING FOR PEACE. WE WANTED TO LIVE A NORMAL LIFE BECAUSE IT’S LIKE A PARADISE. I.

BELIEVE IN TWO PARADISES ONE I GET AFTER DEATH AND ONE I GET ON EARTH BECAUSE SWAT IS BEAUTIFUL AND YOU WOULD BE ASTONISHED WHEN YOU SEE THE LUSH ASTOGREEN HILLS AND THE TALLLUSH MOUNTAIN AND CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER. IT’S REALLY BEAUTIFUL. YOU WOULD LOVE SWAT. gtgt Jon MALALA, I’M FROM NEW JERSEY CHEERS AND APPLAUSE SO I KNOW A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT PARADISE. IT DOES IT SOUNDS MAGNIFICENT AND IT’S HEARTBREAKING BECAUSE YOU SEE WHAT THESE CHILDREN WANT AND WHAT THESE PEOPLE WANT IS TO JUST LIVE IN PEACE WITHOUT HAVING THIS IMPOSED ON THEM.

AND I THINK WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO HELP, YOU KNOW, THERE ARE PASSAGES IN THE BOOK ABOUT THE UNITED STATES. AND WE COME OUT GREAT. LAUGHTER BUT THERE IS YOU KNOW, THERE ARE ATTACKS IN SWAT AND IN THOSE AREAS, DRONES, AND THEY TALK ABOUT A MAN A C.I.A. AGENT WHO SHOT TWO MEN IN LAHORE. ABOUT A MAN A C.I.A. AGENT WHO SHOT TWO MEN IN LAHORE. WE HAVE A COMMON WANT AND DESIRE BUT PERHAPS ARE NOT ACCOMPLISHING IT IN THE MANNER THAT SHOWS THE PEOPLE HOW WE.

FEEL BUT IN SOME WAYS WE DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO WHAT IS YOUR THOUGHT ON THAT gtgt I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA, THE UNITED STATES, THEY TRULY SUPPORT PEACE AND THEY SAY THAT WE MUST NOT FIGHT AGAINST WAR THROUGH WAR. THEY BELIEVE DIALOGUE IS THE BEST WAY. WE MUST TRY TO FIND A SOLUTION FOR IT. IN MY OPINION, THE SOLUTION THAT WOULD WORK TO FIGHT ALL THESE WARS AND ALL THESE PROBLEMS THAT PEOPLE ARE FACING IS ONLY EDUCATION. BECAUSE YOU CAN STOP WAR FOR A SECOND BUT YOU DON’T KNOW IT.

WILL START AGAIN OR NOT. WE’VE SEEN FIRST WORLD WAR, SECOND WORLD WAR AND I THINK THIRD WORLD WAR IS COMING BUT I BELIEVE WE MUST STOP IT NOW. I DON’T WANT TO SEE A THIRD WORLD WAR IN THIS WORLD AGAIN. THE BEST WAY TO FIGHT AGAINST THIS WAR IS EDUCATION. BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE THE CHILDREN ARE SUFFERING FROM THE TERRORISM. THEY ARE SUFFERING FROM CHILD LABOR AND CHILD TRAFFICKING. THEY ARE SUFFERING FROM THE CULTURE TRADITIONS. THERE’S NOT ONLY ONE ISSUE WE ARE FACING, TOO. MANY OTHERS AS WELL.

EDUCATION IS THE BEST WAY. PEOPLE ARE THINKING DOES GOING TO SCHOOL, LEARNING CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS AND MATH. AND THAT’S IT. GOING TO SCHOOL IS NOT ONLY LEARNING ABOUT DIFFERENT SUBJECTS IT TEACHES YOU COMMUNICATION, IT TEACHES YOU HOW TO LIVE A LIFE. IT TEACHES YOU ABOUT HISTORY AND HOW SCIENCE IS WORKING AND OTHER THAN THAT YOU LEARN ABOUT EQUALITY BECAUSE STUDENTS ARE PROVIDING THE SAME IT TEACHES STUDENTS HOW TO LIVE WITH OTHERS TOGETHER HOW TO ACCEPT EACH OF THE LANGUAGE AND TRADITIONS AND EACH OF THEIR RELIGIONS.

IT ALSO TEACHES US JUSTICE. IT ALSO TEACHES US RESPECT. IT TEACHES US HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER. THAT’S WHY I SUPPORT THE I SUPPORT THE IDEA OF SENDING CHILDREN TO SCHOOL BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST WAY TO FIGHT TERRORISM. AND I WANT PEOPLE TO SUPPORT US IN THIS CAUSE AND THROUGH THEUS MALALA FOUNDATION WE WANT TO OFFER EDUCATION OF GIRLS IN THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES ESPECIALLY IN SYRIA NOW. THEY ARE SUFFERING. THEY ARE HOMELESS NOW. WE WANT TO HELP CHILDREN IN AFGHANISTAN BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN SUFFERING FROM TERRORISM FOR DECADES.
