Taliban Shooter Who Attacked Malala Escapes Pakistan Prison, Releases Audio Clip Revealing Date Of Escape

The former Pakistan-taliban spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan escaped from prison on January 11, 2020. He is the one who was responsible for the 2012 shooting on Malala Yousafzai and for executing the  Peshawar Army School attack in 2014. An audio clip released by him on Thursday (February 6, 2020) on social media which said that he escaped prison on January 11, 2020 due to non-fulfillment of promises made by Pakistani forces in 2017.

With the help of God I succeeded to escape on January 11, 2020 from the confinement of the security forces,” he said in the clip. This escape is a shock to Pakistan who keep on campaigning against eradication of Taliban forces. Ehsan has said without unveiling his location that in coming days he would make a video on his confinement days.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala was shot in 2012 in Swat valley when she was campaigning for women's education. She is one of the fearless activists who challenged Taliban through education. Malala’s fight began when Taliban started infiltrating the Swat valley, violence was a routine occurrence along with ban on music, television and Women education. Her father admired her passion for education and took her to Peshawar  where she gave a spell bounding speech on education as one’s basic right. From the day Malala made her mission that education can not be curtailed, she urged nations to come forward and help to provide education to all women.

On her 16th birthday she flew to New York to give a passionate speech at the UN where she urged the world to challenge extremism with education. Since then she met with a number of personalities like Queen Elizabeth and Barack Obama and went to Harvard as well. In October 2014 Malala became the youngest pakistani to receive a Nobel Peace Prize. On her 18th birthday she had opened a school in Lebanon for girls and the tag line said “Books, not Bullets.

Relationship Between Pakistan and Taliban 

There are a number of instances where we find Pakistan supporting Taliban whether it attacks Afghanistan or other places. The basic assumption is that Pakistan somehow believes that a leader in uniform will help them broaden their security interests. On a number of platforms Pakistan has talked about eliminating Taliban or helping to destroy them. Seems like Pakistan’s military operations have learned from militants' groups like Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, which India believes was involved in the Mumbai terror attacks. According to Pakistan security forces they still have faith that Taliban some way or the other safeguards their domestic security.

The interference of Pakistan in Afghan politics can be said to be a reason by which Taliban  and Pakistan ties had strengthened in the past. Yet Pakistan is often accused of harbouring terrorists and supporting such extremist groups. The terror groups behind Pakistan are the sole reason for its distorted reputation around the globe.
