However, there are also people who argue that the education activist isn’t good enough to be the keynote speaker for the LUMS convocation. Seeing as the activist just graduated from Oxford, people feel she is not qualified enough to be a keynote speaker.


Others list reasons why LUMS isn’t good enough for Malala Yousafzai.

Bilal Khan who?

Then there were some students who actually suggested replacing the Nobel Peace Prize-winning activist with Bilal Khan the singer.

Then there were some other suggestions on who the keynote speaker should be.


Word is that only a few students suggested that Malala Yousafzai be replaced as the keynote speaker for LUMS convocation.


That’s when Netizens started asking why do some LUMS students want to uninvite Malala Yousafzai?


Based on the mixed responses online it’s unclear what the LUMS management will do regarding this situation.

Malala recently graduated from Oxford University. Her online exams just ended just recently in June. She had a celebratory moment with her family in London

Previously she was a speaker at the virtual ‘Graduate Together‘ ceremony with people from all across the world, when she herself had not even graduated.

There are conflicting opinions about Malala in Pakistan. The education activist was shot on the head by the Taliban in 2012. She was evacuated to UK and then stayed there as she was offered a scholarship to study at Oxford.

However, her silence on key issues in Pakistan such as Kashmir has irked the public.

  1. Unsure what’s their criteria for inviting a keynote speaker but seems a bit lame. What has she really accomplished? A degree from a prestigious institute & then what? Noble prize winner? Anyone who speaks against Talibans may become credible in the eyes of the west…

    • True that. What has she truly accomplished? Many girls and boys go through what happened to her. She is the trophy girl for the west. I bet the west will use her later on for accomplishing things in their favour.

  2. Malala barley graduated last month, what qualifies her to be a keynote speaker at such a prestigious institute?? Where are our think tanks with huge practical experience and wisdom to share. Had i been a graduating student or a faculty i rather shame the speaker as well as those who try to nominate her to speak to our youth..

  3. Activist since childhood, as a young girl resisted the mullaban, Nobel laureate. Only disgraceful misogynistic mullaban apologists will keep speaking against her. No shame in that lot..!
