Malala Yousufzai’s book has been banned in Pakistan’s private schools after the teenage activist was accused of becoming a tool of the West for writing “highly controversial” contents in her memoir.

The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF) issued a statement,saying it has been decided that Malala’s book,‘I am Malala’,will never be made part of the libraries or the curriculum in private schools.

The APPSF unanimously approved banning the book after it “found the contents regarding Holy Prophet highly controversial and written at the behest of Western forces” who,it claims,have used Malala for their own ulterior motives.

Islamabad: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant group has claimed that Pakistan’s government resorted to sorcery to cause headache and body pain to its slain chief Hakeemullah Mehsud. Mehsud sought spiritual treatment from an Arab healer prior to the fatal drone strike on November 1,the TTP said in a statement. In the last days of his life,Mehsud had received spiritual treatment which improved his health and he was able to step up militant activities,the statement claimed. “Although he had no symptom of any disease,Hakeemullah’s health had been steadily declining because of the government’s sorcery,” the TTP was quoted by The Dawn as saying.
