[Dawn] After the outpour of grief and anger over the attack on Malala Yousafzai from world leaders and officials, the teenage girl from Swat
...a valley and an administrative district in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistain, located 99 mi from Islamabad. It is inhabited mostly by Pashto speakers. The place has gone steadily downhill since the days when Babe Ruth was the Sultan of Swat...
received support from an unexpected quarter when Madonna dedicated a song to Malala in a concert in Los Angeles.
According to a report on The Hollywood Reporter, the music diva said she cried when she heard about the shooting of the girl in Swat valley. "This song is for you, Malala," she said and then went on to sing "Human nature."
"The 14-year-old schoolgirl who wrote a blog about going to school. The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her. Do you realise how sick that is," Madonna asked her fans in LA.
The 54-year-old then shouted "Support education! Support women!" to loud cheers from the crowd.
Madonna even went on to reveal Malala's name, which was written on her body when she stripped during the concert.
Some of the fans who attended the concert were moved by Madonna's and took to social media websites to praise the act:
| She does have a fondness for stripping, poor dear. Last time she stripped to show the president's name written on her torso. |
