Malala's father offered job in UK Pakistan Consulate
London, Nov. 23 (ANI): The Pakistani government has decided to give Malala Yousuzai's father a job at the Pakistan Consulate in Birmingham, where the 15-year-old activist is being treated.
According to sources, Ziauddin Yousufzai, who has worked as a senior teacher and administrator in Swat, would either be given grade 18 or 19 Counsellor rank or he will be appointed a senior administrator. He would be paid around 3,000 dollars, and may be provided with a car and housing facility. He will be appointed on a yearly contract until the family decides to go back to Pakistan, reports The News.
"Government of Pakistan is responsible for the welfare of Malala and her family while they are in the UK. In view of the expected prolonged treatment of Malala in the UK, the Government of Pakistan is thinking about various options to properly look after the family," said a spokesperson of the Pakistan High Commission.
The entire Yousufzai family is currently on visit visa to Britain to be with Malala, who was shot by the Taliban last month for advocating female education. Their visas will be expiring around March 2013.
Doctors at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where Malala is currently being treated, have said she would take at least two years to fully recover from her severe injuries. (ANI)
