Nobel Laureate Malala Encourages Mexican Students to Use Social Media as Political Weapon

Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai encouraged youngsters here to use social media platforms as a political weapon and on issues that they truly care about, such as equality, women’s rights and education.

The 20-year-old activist warned of the danger of discrimination on social network and the media in her remarks on Thursday during a press conference at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education in Mexico City.

Youzafzai said if online discrimination persists, people will start thinking that they need to hate Mexicans, Muslims or Catholics.

“Thanks to technology, young people could now be more involved in the politics of their countries,” she said.

When asked about the xenophobic remarks of US President Donald Trump which usually appear on his social media accounts, Youzafzai said that his behaviours were wrong.

She said although people should follow their tradition, culture and nationality, they should not follow the hate because it hurts others.

Youzafzai was also concerned about the situation of women in Latin America and called for equal right to education.

Youzafzai, who won the Nobel Peace Prize when she was 17, making her the youngest Nobel laureate to date, began her fight for equality at the age of 11, resisting the fundamentalist Taliban’s prohibition of local girls going to school.
