[Updated at 11:17 a.m. ET] We've just received video that shows Malala Yousufzai speaking for the first time on camera since she was shot.
"I'm getting better day by day," she said, citing the prayers of her supporters. "Because of these prayers God has given me this new life."
[Posted at 9:57 a.m. ET] Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai who was shot in the head by the Taliban is doing very well after two operations over the weekend and will not require further surgery, her doctors said today.
"She has no long-lasting brain injuries ... the brain is healing very well," her neurosurgeon Anwen White told reporters in Birmingham, England.
I wish this young lady well in her continued recovery.
God has not given her anything... THe doctors, the politicians, the PEOPLE have. The day we stop believing in a mythical superpower and start believing in ourselves and our own capability to change the world, is the day we achieve world peace...
Actually, in more ways than one HER GOD IS WHAT CAUSED THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE !!!!!!!!!! Religion is a dangerous tool that prevents progress and must be slowly eroded and removed from this world....
She apparently believes otherwise. And, you need to respect that. So, wish her well. If you can't do that, don't even bother responding to this article.
Calvin, how dare you ridicule all atheists, which I assume you're doing with the "your kind" comment. Even if you don't agree with this person's comments, they were much more respectful than you. Religion has killed hundreds of millions so this person raises a valid point. What's more amazing to me is that Christians still have to believe that this person is going to hell. If you don't see a problem with that, I feel sorry for you.
Malala we wish you good luck and may god give you speedy recovery. You are an answer to religious extremism. I hope peoples of Pakistan will learn something from you and will say NO to Terrorism, religious extremism and violence against women.
God gave her nothing. Her body healed itself with the aid of modern medicine. When I hear God call and say Stop that and I know its god then I will believe. But so far all I hear is stories from a book and rumors from people. Wheres the proof people. And no the spark of life isn't proof. Its nature in motion.
And let's not forget that Christians have to believe she is still going to hell. You either accept Jesus as your "lord and personal savior", or you perish. Religion is so immature!
More people die in the name of religion in this part of the world
God bless you, Malala! You are a survivor!
A brave one indeed.We wish you the best in life Malala.
GOD IS REAL'BELIEVED OR NOT, ONEDAY EVE'Y ONE WIL GIV ACCOUNT OF THEIR DEED"GOOD OR BAD.MALALA GOD WIL NE'ER FORSAKE U
Go ahead and yell. It make what you're saying that much more believable.
Which god did this? Budda? Yahweh? Allah? Zeus? Apollo?
A matter of faith, folks.
There are those who believe whatever their faith leads them to believe & there are those who don't. What is there to argue?
Well said saywhat on both comments!
As for this little brave girl I do hope that she causes us to think about countless other Malalas dead & dying in this 'war on terror'.
Malala, God Almighty will continue to guide and protect you.
I am exceptionally proud of this girl regardless of what she believes. She is stronger than each of you arguing about religious beliefs and forgetting the point of the actual story the fact she was shot for standing up for rights and arguing that the Koran does not forbid the educations of females. I cannot say it was and was not God I believe, however, we all have our beliefs and to each his or her own. Fighting with someone over religion is pointless, They believe what they believe live by example and that is where you can impact others. Not arguing here and missing the main point of the story. You go girl!!!
