Education activist, Malala Yousafzai, has recently faced criticism for her lack of speedy and strong support for the Palestinians and is now facing major backlash once again. This time because of her partnership with former US First Lady Hilary Clinton, who has actively spoken against a ceasefire in Gaza.

Malala Yousafzai always had people who did not agree with her point of view. But this time it’s different. Different because people, including notable personalities who have defended her against those deeming her a “puppet” of the Western world, are now withdrawing support of her.

In a recent announcement, Hillary Clinton and Malala are said to collaborate as co-producers for a new Broadway production titled “Suffs,” marking their debut on the Broadway stage.

“Suffs” is a musical that depicts the suffrage movement in the United States, chronicling the campaign for women’s right to vote from 1913 to 1920, culminating in the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

This collaboration has become questionable for the Pakistani public in the light of an on-going Israeli genocide in Gaza that is financed by the US and above all, supported by Hilary Clinton herself. And people are asking: what exactly is Malala thinking by doing this collaboration at this time.

People react:

Some supporters defended Malala

Background

While Malala Yousafzai has spoken regarding the situation in Gaza since October 7 and has called for a ceasefire, her takes have been carefully worded and somewhat diplomatic which also drew criticism as she has not openly called out Israel for committing a genocide.

On the other hand, Hilary Clinton has openly advocated against a ceasefire in Gaza, justifying Israeli deadly operations in the besieged strip.
