Mussarat Ahmadzeb, a Pakistani woman parliamentarian and lawmaker, has claimed that the Taliban attack on Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai, was “scripted”. She even alleged that the entire episode of Malala writing for the BBC and the attack on her were part of the scheme.
While speaking to Urdu newspaper ‘Ummat’, Ahmadzeb said,
The attack on Malala was scripted way before the incident (in 2012).
Doubting whether a bullet was actually shot at Malala, the woman also claimed that the government later gave land to medicos involved in Malala’s treatment.
According to Ahmadzeb’s statement, Malala could not read and write when it was shown that she was writing for BBC and that an American trained her for three months for the position.
Later, Ahmadzeb tweeted,

In 2014, Mussarat Ahmadzeb was disowned by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party for not abiding by the party discipline.
Malala Yousafzai was shot in head in 2012 for her active role in fighting for female education and opposing restrictions imposed on girls by the Taliban.
The 19-year-old survived the attack and became a global symbol of advocating for millions of girls who were being denied an education across the world.
In 2014, Malala went on to become the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
