ASTONISHING Taliban chief's writes letter to Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai,saying why they triedto kill her.

A Taliban commander has written to teenage schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai explaining why she was shot in the head by the group – but also expressing regret that it ever happened.

Malala, then 15, was gravely wounded by masked gunmen who singled her out as she returned home in a school bus in Pakistan’s north-west Swat Valley.
The shooting sparked worldwide condemnation and Malala was flown to Britain for treatment.

The letter from Rasheed, who was freed in a mass jail break last year after he was arrested over a plot to murder Pakistan’s former president, falls short of offering a full apology.
But he wrote:

 ‘When you were attacked it was shocking for me. I wished it would never happened and I had advised you before.’ He explained she was shot not because she went to school, but because she had spoken out against the Taliban in Pakistan .
‘Taliban believe that you were intentionally writing against them and running a smearing campaign to malign their efforts to establish Islamic system in Swat and your writings were provocative,’ he wrote.
‘You have said in your [UN] speech that pen is mightier than sword, so they attacked you for your sword not for your books or school.’
He added that he was not against the principle of girls being educated, but was specifically against a western education – which he said followed a ‘satanic or secular curriculum’.
However, the tone soon changes, as Rasheed makes a bizarre attempt to defend the TTP’s assassination attempt

He writes that Malala had to be silenced because she was ‘running a smearing campaign to malign their efforts to establish Islamic system in Swat and your writings were provocative.’
Rasheed claims that the Taliban is in fact not against education for women, challenging her on why she was shot.
‘There were thousands of girls who were going to school before and after the Taliban insurgency in Swat, would you explain why were only you on their hit list???,’ he asks.
‘You and the UNO is pretending that as you were shot due to education, although this is not the reason, be honest, not the education but your propaganda was the issue and what you are doing now.’
Rasheed also defends the destruction of schools in Swat Valley by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, claiming they are being used by the Pakistani army, and ‘when something sacred is turned lethal it needs to be eliminated this is the policy of Taliban’.

The letter, in which he claims the Western nations are in ‘conspiracy with Jews and freemasons’ he also calls President Barack Obama a mass murderer and claims polio vaccinations are a sterilization programme.
He writes that although it is ‘amazing’ that she campaigns for education, Rasheed finishes his letter, dated on July 15th, that Malala should ‘come back home, adopt the Islamic and pushtoon culture, join any female Islamic madrassa near your home town’.
