Books fight terrorism

· Malala inaugurates Europe's largest library ·

London, 4. Books as weapons for fighting terrorism. This was the message of Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old civil rights activist known for her work in promoting the right of women in her country to education, at the inauguration of a Birmingham library. With its 31,000 square metres, the library is the largest in Europe and holds one million books, including the first editions of various works by William Shakespeare. In her address, Malala — who was attacked in Peshawar on 9 October 2012 and rushed to Great Britain where she was hospitalized and now lives — emphasized the value of a culture which promotes societies based on peace. In her fight against global illiteracy, Malala has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
