Inspiration - The Fearless Activist Who Challenged Terrorism With Education.

Malala Yousafzai has become a global icon for her fearless efforts advocating for every child’s right to education, even while living under increasingly dangerous circumstances.

Malala born and raised in a country where only boys were allowed an education.On July 12, 1997, Malala Yousafzai was born in Mingora, a city in the Swat District of Pakistan.Malala grew up in awe of her father, an activist who believed the lack of education was the root of all of Pakistan’s problems. She attended a public school founded by her father and developed a thirst for knowledge from an early age.

As class attendance dwindled for fear of retribution, Malala refused to renounce her right to an education. Her father noticed her passion for standing up against the Taliban’s oppressive campaign and took Malala to Peshawar to speak at the local press club. There, she gave an impassioned speech to an audience of newspapers and TV channels. She asked them, “How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?”
On October 9, 2012, Malala was riding home from school on a bus with her friends when a masked gunman jumped aboard. He brandished a gun at the children and demanded to know which girl was Malala. As her friends turned to look at her, he fired three shots. One bullet hit Malala on the left side of her head, traveling down her neck and embedding itself in her shoulder. Panic ensued as she collapsed and the gunman made his escape.

An ambulance was called and 15-year-old Malala was airlifted to a military hospital in critical condition. After a five-hour operation, the bullet was removed, but she was far from stable.  she was transferred to Germany and then the United Kingdom for treatment.
The murder attempt spurred worldwide outrage and protests across Pakistan. A right-to-education bill was passed in her country for the first time, and she receives global support when promoting her cause.

On July 12, 2013, her 16th birthday, Malala was flown to New York to give a passionate speech at the United Nations, where she urged the world to challenge extremism with education. Later that year, she published her first book, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban.
Since then, Malala has continued her activism with renewed courage. In October 2014, at age 17, Malala became the youngest person and only Pakistani to receive a Nobel Peace Prize. On her 18th birthday, she opened a school for Syrian refugee girls in Lebanon. At the opening, her first words as an adult were a call-to-action for world leaders to invest in “books, not bullets.”With over 40 honorary awards to her name, Malala Yousafzai has become a messenger of peace
Today, Malala resides in Birmingham, UK, where she has been proudly accepted to Oxford University. There she will study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics to strengthen her influence and further her advocacy for education.

Throughout her youth, Malala has shown exceptional strength and courage in the face of terrorism. The attempt on her life only served to embolden her belief in a better, more equal world. Her voice has brought education to thousands of children and has inspired millions more. Malala Yousafzai is proof that age has no bearing in the fight for what is right, that anyone can and should raise their voice to improve the world around them.

Book by Rajesh Bhat Programme Officer of AIR Directorate released.

A new book unravels historical facts about how Radio Kashmir has over the past seven decades countered incessant malicious propaganda by various underground and FM stations that operate round-the-clock from across the border.Replete with rare pictures, transcripts and documents from the archives of Jammu and Kashmir, “Radio Kashmir: In Times of Peace & War” reveals how Radio Pakistan and its notorious Radio Trarkhal beamed vicious misinformation against India to create unrest in the minds of people of Kashmir while trifling with their sentiments and identity.
It also says how under ‘Operation Topac’, the ISI launched more radio stations, mostly along the Indo-Pak border to bombard airwaves with hostile ranting.In addition to Jammu and Kashmir, Radio Pakistan had a meticulously planned coverage to target certain communities living in Indian cities, including New Delhi, Jaipur, Kanpur, Bikaner, Ambala, Saharanpur, Meerut, Aligarh, Farrukhabad, and parts of Nepal, rousing anti-India feelings, the book says.And how Radio Pakistan and Azad Kashmir Radio acted as a bridge in establishing communication channels between the infiltrators and their masters. These messages, colloquially called Taranas, were most often in Gojri, Pahari, Urdu and Punjabi, spoken on either side of LoC and even in the Punjab province of Pakistan, according to the book.

Brought out by Stellar Publishers, this book emanates from research, based on a doctoral study by author Rajesh Bhat (posted in the Policy Division of Directorate General, All India Radio), who had also served as Special Correspondent, Daily Excelsior in terms of the pivotal function performed by a public service broadcaster like Radio Kashmir during the times of both peace and war since 1947.
The book goes on to describe how Radio Kashmir performed an immensely significant role in safeguarding the strategic interests of both the Government and the masses by addressing the core issues concerning the welfare and security of a nation.And also how industriously it has attempted to weave a cohesive social and cultural fabric in Jammu and Kashmir in the face of turmoil, unrest and proxy war being waged by seditious elements.Set up on December 1, 1947, with a makeshift studio in Sri Ranbir High School in Jammu, to countermand the specious rumours and fabricated information being disseminated to the refugees pouring in post-Partition, Maharaja Hari Singh inaugurated the station with his maiden broadcast to allay the fears of the people in the turbulent Valley.
To fight on another fraught front, the state government set up another unit of Radio Kashmir at Srinagar on July 1, 1948, with the prime aim to speak to the people in their own language, and also maintain harmony and brotherhood through the broadcasts, while effectively and skilfully countering the Pakistan propaganda.

The two wings of Radio Kashmir at Jammu and Srinagar, which initially started functioning under the J&K Information Department, continued to be under the control of the state Government till April 1954 with this unique name, although they were relaying general programmes and news from AIR, which was already functioning in the pre-Independence era.
