Didn’t see this coming.

Malala, Pakistan’s Nobel Peace Prize winner and Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations, is under fire for her plea to the leaders of both India and Pakistan to resolve the animosity between the two.

Since her accident, Malala has always been a controversial topic for Pakistanis. While many of us applaud her bravery and incentive to further the narrative on knowledge and equality for women in Pakistan, many people in our country criticize her for leaving Pakistan and beginning a life elsewhere.

However, Malala has always had nothing but hope and confidence for our country and given our current situation with India, she commented on the topic.

And while many were in praise for her message,

People on Twitter are calling Malala out for criticizing the situation, stating that because she left her country, she doesn’t have an opinion.

And while Malala was pretty much stating the most neutral commentary in her tweet, it seemed to have rubbed many Indians in particular, in the wrong way.

Many feel her message unreasonable, given the fact that she herself no longer resides in Pakistan.

And in the same fashion, many Pakistanis are offended at the fact that she did not recognize that Imran Khan has been on the better more sensible side of things in the whole situation.

Just like anyone who has settled outside of Pakistan, Malala is completely entitled to her own opinion. Pakistan is and will always be her home as well as anyone else’s who has chosen to study, work or live abroad. It is absolutely valid for her to have concern and being so that she is a UN ambassador, it is technically part of her own job to feel concerned as a citizen of the world and as a Pakistani.

It is, however, quite surprising to see that both Indians and Pakistanis are not allowing external individuals to plea for peace, yet have orchestrated an entire social media campaign together for the same incentive. It seems as though even in the strife for war and peace, both nations are keen on keeping the (what seems prehistoric) rivalry on their own ground.

Have you seen the conversation around Malala’s tweet? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
