Malala Yousafzai is the beautiful 14 year old girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban because of her efforts advocating on behalf of education for girls in Pakistan.
After Friday Prayer, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf visited Ms. Yousafzai’s family at a heavily guarded military hospital in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, where doctors were considering whether to send her abroad for treatment.

“The next 48 hours will be critical,” Mr. Ashraf told reporters. Extremists targeted Ms. Yousafzai, who was shot in the head while riding in a school bus on Tuesday in Mingora, because, he said, “they were scared of the power of her vision.”

“She is the true face of Pakistan,” he added.

The army is directing efforts to save Ms. Yousafzai, who is on a ventilator. Government officials have estimated her chances of survival at 50 to 70 percent.
O Lord of the people, heal Malala's injury, remove her pain and cure it.  You who can cure, grant such a cure that no illness remains.  (Islamic prayer with edit)
