Malala angers Indians by trolling India at WC opening ceremony
LONDON: Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai was targeted by some Indians on social media after she trolled India for coming in last in the 60 seconds challenge.
Malala is known for her sharp wit and excellent sense of humour. Every time the activist makes an appearance, her statements make headlines worldwide.
After she played the 60 seconds challenge with former Pakistan skipper Azhar Ali at the opening ceremon of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Malala was asked to say a few words.
When asked about the 60 seconds challenge, Malala said,”Well, it didn’t go well. We came in at number seven but India finished last so…,” she said, laughing.
It was obvious that Malala, representing Pakistan, made the comment in a light-hearted manner. However, some Indians on social media were angered by her comment.
We came 7th but India came last – Malala Yousofzai, very typical.

You praise Pakistan, a nation where you can't go.
You demean India like a typical brainwashed Pakistani, yet India is a nation which you can safely visit.
Stop being petty and disgusting @Malala. pic.twitter.com/MGugFTKCfV

Don't know why ICC invited Malala, that Nobel Prize winner said Pakistan will be happy that they came 7th(in 60 second game) because India came last. Absolute state of her who came representing Pakistan.

Malala insulted India at a WC event!
An essential condition for winning a nobel for peace is to rise above petty and hateful nationalism. You clearly don't deserve the award @Malala
Feel free to block me like you block anyone who points out your hypocrisy 😄 pic.twitter.com/rzNNSIQwfY

Farhan & Kumble scored only 19 & India finished at last and Malala was celebrating India's failure 😒
" We did well, we were 7th but India finished last, that's what matters for Pakistanis "
Typical Paki thoughts 😒🌚

Typical Pakistani mindset from this overrated malala.
She is happy that India came last.
She doesn't even have the courage to live in her country,yet she takes on India here.
Where was she when teenage Hindu girls in Pakistan were forcefully converted to Islam and married?#CWC19 pic.twitter.com/mUjL8F8IOg

Heard you were glad that Pak finished ahead of India. Love it when people celebrate little joys of life.
You're still always welcome in India though.
We don't attack schools here.@Malala

Right. @malala is now just a tool in the hands of her handlers. She does not utter a word on the abduction, forced conversion and marriages of minor girls in Sind by the so called Sufis. Reserves her gyan for India and Indians. Petty and small. https://t.co/ZALqPpN8ex

However, some Pakistanis were quite elated at her cheeky comment. They couldn’t help but express their delight at the joke on India’s expense.
Cheeky and spot on as always @Malala! How I love this girl👌😂
"Pakistan we were ok, not too bad-came No 7 but India came last so I think for Pakistan that's what….but India played really well"

Most hilarious moment of that Cricket World Cup opening ceremony was when Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai – I repeat, Nobel Peace Prize Winner – tells the crowd, "Pakistan, we were okay, not too bad, came No. 7…. but India came last!" pic.twitter.com/bECmfVhknZ

Malala also spoke about how sports united countries and had no boundaries. The education activist said that Sana Mir and other women cricketers in Pakistan were inspiring other girls to play cricket in Pakistan as well.
