Malala, 14, was singled out and shot by gunmen on Tuesday for blogging about life in the Swat Valley while it was occupied by the Taliban until 2009.
With placards that said â€śI am Malala,â€ť â€śstand with me or the Talibanâ€ť and â€śI was shot for wanting peace and education,â€ť the demonstrators gathered in front of the Punjab assembly and chanted slogans against Taliban â€śmurderers.â€ť
South Asia Partnership Pakistan (SAP), a group of regional development organizations,Â organized the two hour rally which concluded with the lighting of candles in front of giant posters of Malala, a childrenâ€™s rights activist who had spoken out against the militants.
â€śThis is the ugliest face of ignorance, tyranny and extremism. The cowardly act of the militant Taliban has proved they do not spare innocent children,â€ť said Farzana Mumtaz, media coordinator of SAP, in a press statement.
â€śShe caused wonder in the world with her progressive campaign in an impoverished locality. She has made the whole nation proud. She has become a symbol of womenâ€™s courage and the whole of society stands with her.â€ť
Meanwhile, surgeons released news of her condition after removing a bullet from near her spinal cord in a three-hour operation. â€śShe will be kept in intensive care unit as the next 24 hours are critical,â€ť said Doctor Mumtaz Khan at the Combined Military Hospital in Peshawar.
Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan has offered to pay her medical expenses.
