Fearing the Taliban people in the valley parents stopped sending girls to school and more than 400 schools were closed. There, one of the schools was also of Malala.

This incident changed Malala's life.
Malala was so shocked that she wrote a diary for the BBC from 2009 under another name 'Gul Corn'. In this, she opened the Taliban's illiteracy layer by layer in the Swat Valley. She mentioned that she could not watch her favorite Indian serial Raja Ki Aayegi Baaraat due to the ban on watching TV. This led to Taliban sorrow. A few days later, in December 2009, Malala's father revealed that Malala is 'Gul Corn'.
She is fond of writing the Mazmoon diary, Malala wrote 'Today was the last day of school, so we decided to play a little longer on the field. I believe that one day the school will open, but on the way to leaving, I saw the school building as if I will never come here again. '
