From The Telegraph:
Malala Yousafzai remains in a critical condition after being singled out by gunmen on her way home from school on Tuesday.
Her courage in writing a blog about life under the Pakistan Taliban when they controlled the Swat Valley has turned her into a national hero in a country where few are brave enough to challenge extremism.
Doctors cannot yet say whether she will make a full recovery.
Hours after surgeons removed a bullet from his daughter’s neck, Ziaddun Yousafzai told The Daily Telegraph that his family had no intention of seeking asylum overseas.
“We wouldn’t leave our country if my daughter survives or not,” said Mr Yousafzai, at the military hospital in the north-western city of Peshawar where Malala is being treated.
“We have an ideology that advocates peace. The Taliban cannot stop all independent voices through the force of bullets.” […]
The Pakistan Taliban has already said it will try again to kill Malala if she survives. On Wednesday family friends reported fresh threats against Malala’s father and brother.
Malala won international recognition for highlighting Taliban atrocities in Swat with an anonymous blog for the BBC three years ago, when the Islamist militants led by radical cleric Maulana Fazlullah burned girls schools and terrorised the valley.
Her struggle resonated with tens of thousands of girls who were denied an education by Islamist militants.
Gunmen flagged down her school bus on Tuesday and opened fire after asking for the young activist by name.
