He Named Me Malala

I was left with nothing but in awe after watching this documentary last weekend thanks to M.A.D team, you guys are the greatest! *muacks* :-*
How many of you here enjoy watch documentaries like me? Don't think much would enjoy the long talks and action-less screening right? :P
Well, in that sense i was glad i grew up watching tons of documentaries from animals, world war and about people all thanks to my dad (usually i'll call him old man lol).
For "He named me Malala" was really an inspiring documentary about a girl younger than both you and me with a determination to change the world.


Seriously at that age who would even think of winning nobel prize awards or even fight for women's rights in your own country? At that age i was basically only worried about passing my frigging PMR so i can move on with my life and finish form 5 =.=
Thinking back i felt like i haven't done anything worthwhile with my life till today except for chasing rainbow unicorn poop trails lol.

Living against all odds in your country where women in general were treated like slaves and deprive of any rights. Yes there are still countries that are still following this caveman system till this very day and many innocent girls and women are living in fear because of this.
Education is taken for granted in many advanced countries, some drop out because they don't see the point of education but how about those out there who WANTS to actually learn but aren't allowed.

Thinking about this itself makes me take back all my complaints about having too much assignments or hating my unreasonable lecturers, i am considered blessed to have this freedom to pursue my studies and yet i chose to take it for granted by complaining.
While many out there are still living in fear under the retarded law of terrorists in their homeland, with war still ongoing in certain parts of the world. Those who aren't aware there is actually still a war ongoing out there should seriously read more about global issues.

This documentary is based on a bestseller biography of a girl who was shot in the head by Talibans but survived and is living well this this very day (still younger than me lol!)
For those who have read the book would be familiar about Malala's life story from her childhood to adolescent days before she was shot because of the speech she gave fighting for women's rights to have access to education in their country. 
But the whole experience from reading this book and watching the live documentary is totally different, in fact i felt so much disgust for the Talibans in the show because of how they misused and twisted Allah's (God) teachings for their own delusional ruling.

Even though in every religion, God tells us to love our enemies and forgive them no matter what but somehow it seems impossible to me at this point of time especially with their barbaric actions to those who are considered "against" them.
To shoot a 15 year old girl in the head just because you felt she is a threat? That is more like an act for cowards than a so called self proclaimed "religious group who hears God's words". 

Those who read this blogpost might find this rather a sensitive issue to be talking about but really, today we are living in an era where we have the freedom of speech (except my country la lol) to express our thoughts and actions. But sadly those are easier said than actually practiced due to the fact we are actually still unable to voice out without having government authorities knocking on our doors.
So i am not here to look for an argument but to just voice my thoughts on this matter ON MY OWN blog lol, so no harm shall be inflicted on others k? If you don't like what you read here please just click "X" on the top right tab :)


This documentary was beautifully made especially with the drawings that tells the early life of Malala and her family's, not to mention the soundtrack that fits to it perfectly.
Also its a chance for you to learn more about what's actually going on in other parts of the world, it's time to get out of your comfort zone and learn about the global issues that are still ongoing for the past few decades. It might be your usual 2 hour action packed block buster but this whole 1 hour 27 min show will definitely change your perspective on the world especially about women's rights and education.
It will be showing in GSC cinemas near you from November 2015 onwards, all this takes is 1 hour to be empowered :)
You can show your support by watching this movie and also funding their cause: www.malala.org
