Malala Yousafzai dresses up in green to commemorate Pakistan’s Independence Day
Dressed in green, the world's youngest Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai, Sunday shared her picture on her social media accounts to wish Pakistan a "Merry 75th Independence Day".
“Today and every day, we must stand for the dignity of every person in our beloved country, regardless of their caste, religion or ethnicity,” the 25-year-old tweeted emphasizing the teachings of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on equality.
The champion of girls’ education and women’s rights turned to Twitter, calling on fellow citizens to defend the equality and dignity of each person, whatever his or her “caste, religion or ethnicity”.
Sharing her thoughts as part of the celebration, Malala also shared a photo on Instagram with her husband Asser Malik, and an image of Quaid-e-Azam with the text of one of his more popular quotations.
“You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed — that has nothing to do with the business of the state,” the quote read.
