According to Dr. Agha Seed, National Chair of the American Muslim Alliance, ranking of Malala as the sixth among the 100 top Global Thinkers by the Foreign Affairs magazine is a sign of desperation by the western establishment. Tellingly President Barrack Obama is ranked after Malala in seventh position. The first five are: (1) Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi (2) President Moncef Marzouki of Tunisia (3) Bill and Hillary Clinton (4) Stanford University computer scientist Sebastian Thrun (5) Bill and Melinda Gates. 

Surprisingly, Malala Yousefzai escaped the attention of the Jordan-based Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre - the compilers of another agenda-driven publication, the World's 500 Most Influential Muslims in 2012. However, efforts continue to manufacture an anti-Taliban icon with observing Malala Day on November 10 while UNESCO plans to celebrate Malala Day on December 10. The professed objective behind the Malala Day appears noble but the real objective looks sinister as the innocent girl became a pawn in the New Great Game.
