Malala urges Muslims to unite for peace


Sharjah—Pakistan’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, giving a speech on Wednesday in the Emirates, urged Muslims to respect the “true message of Islam” and unite against wars in their countries. “We cannot talk about investing in our future in this region without calling for an end to these bombings and these attacks,” Malala told a conference in the southern Gulf emirate of Sharjah on the future of women in the Middle East. Malala also called for empowering the younger generation, especially women, with the education needed “to bring peace and prosperity to their countries”.
