Human chain to show solidarity with Malala

A number of social groups will form a human chain here Friday to show solidarity with women folk of south Asia on Malala Day - the birthday of Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai.
Members of Khudai Khidmatgars, Sadbhav Mission and Aman Uday have appealed to people to join them at Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah at 4 p.m. Friday.

"All over the world, especially in our societies, lakhs and lakhs of girls lead life under extremely tough and challenging circumstances as they face different types of discrimination at all stages of their lives," said a statement issued by the group.

The 16th birthday of Malala is being celebrated as "Malala Day" across the world on 11-12 July.
Malala was shot in the head 9 October, 2012, after she became a spokesperson for girls' education and boldly opposed the Taliban's moves to ban girls from schools.

She underwent treatment in Britain, and continues to live there after her father was appointed to a diplomatic post at Pakistan's consulate in Birmingham, which he can hold for up to five years.
