Malala Condemns Donald Trump's Proposal for Muslim Exclusion

Malala Condemns Donald Trump's Proposal for Muslim Exclusion

By Danica Lo

Yesterday, at a ceremony in England memorializing the Taliban massacre of a Pakistani school last year, where 134 were killed at the hands of terrorists, Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai publicly condemned GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposal — and insistence — on the United States adopting a police of Muslim exclusion.

"Well, that's really tragic that you hear these comments which are full of hatred, full of this ideology of being discriminative towards others," Yousafzai told AFP. Instead of exclusion, Malala advocates a solution- and education-based approach to the problem of extremism and terrorist indoctrination.

"There are these terrorist attacks happening, for example what happened in Paris or what happened in Peshawar a year ago. It's not just needed in Pakistan but across the world. If we want to end terrorism we need to bring quality education so we defeat the mindset of terrorism mentality and of hatred."
