Islamabad : Malala Yousufzai’s book has been banned in Pakistan’s private schools after the teenage activist was accused of becoming a tool of the West for writing “highly controversial” contents in her memoir. The All Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF) issued a statement, saying it has been decided that Malala’s book, ‘I am Malala’, would never be made part of the libraries or the curriculum in private schools. The APPSF unanimously approved banning the book after it “found the contents regarding Holy Prophet highly controversial and written at the behest of Western forces” who it claims have used Malala for ulterior motives. President of APPSF Mirza Kashif Ali said the federation represents all the private schools of the country no matter how big or small and that the decision to ban Malala’s book was taken with consensus because the academics know that Malala was playing in the hands of the West.
