"Ally" in War on Taliban Ban Book by Girl Attacked by Taliban

Apparently Malala is an Islamophobe:

Malala Yousufzai’s recent book ‘I am Malala’ will be banned completely due to its ‘controversial’ contents in all private schools across the country, Pakistan Today has learnt.

“Our academics have thoroughly studied her (Malala’s) book and have concluded that reading that book will only confuse our children. Malala’s defence of Salmaan Rushdie in the name of freedom of expression, not writing Peace Be Upon Him after the name of prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and criticising the Quranic injunctions about the status of women in testifying as witnesses are only a few things which will challenge the ideological foundations of our next generation,” Kashif said while talking to Pakistan Today.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they're using the Britishism "private school" to mean what we would call "public schools". So, blame imperialism for the confusion.

Thanks to Laura
