The youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who survived being shot in the head by the Taliban has condemned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's call to ban Muslims in the US. Despite widespread backlash over his rhetoric, Trump stands by what he said and continues to defend himself. Malala has pointed out that Politicians need to be careful about what they say and think of the implications of their speech.
Malala to the Press Association:
"So it's important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it."
"If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism. It will radicalise more terrorists.”
She condemns Trump for using discriminatory language and his hate speeches against Muslims. She fears that it will worsen the situation and by targeting the entire Muslim population, only more terrorists will be radicalised.
Malala calls Donald Trump's comments to be "tragic" and "full of hatred".
