Papers carried a picture of Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai standing with Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the PPP chairman without giving any back ground of this meeting. I wonder if this was just a photo session with a Nobel Laureate or did it have some other objective? Was it PPP’s requirement, to project their chairman, by showing him with a distinguished girl, who earned many international awards, including Nobel Peace Prize of 2014 and entering her name in the Guinness Book of world records being the youngest in getting Nobel Peace Prize. Whatever the case may be, it speaks low of PPP chairman by photographing with Malala without any reason. Either PPP party should have arranged a function in her honour, where the chairman could have been shown presenting her with some suitable prize or Bilawal could have gone to attend the function at the party’s expense, where she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
