Shazia and Kainat were the other two girls who also sustained injuries in the attack on Malala Yousafazai returning home in their school van on October 8, 2012. Malala Yousafzai was moved to Birmingham due to the criticality of her condition while Shazai and Kainat who got less serious injuries continued receiving treatment in Swat and Peshawar.
Shazia’s father confirmed she arrived in England on June 29 after her application for study visa was approved by the UK embassy. Shazia will join Malala Yousafzai at the Edgbaston High School in Birmingham, England. While Kainat’s father confirmed on telephone that his daughter’s application submitted at the UK embassy some 15 days ago has been rejected a couple of days ago.
