Last Thursday, Malala Yousafazi was shot on the way home from school, as part of as assassination attempt by the Taliban- who targeted the 14 year old for speaking out group’s oppression of women in her homeland of Pakistan.
Shot in the head and then again in the neck, she currently remains unconscious and in present danger with the Taliban threatening to target her again for being a ‘symbol of the infidels and obscenity‘.
So, in what marks a strange twist in this tragic story, ‘Ray Of Light‘ icon Madonna has ‘honored’ Malala with a strip tease carried out during Wednesday’s showing of her ‘MDNA Tour’ in LA.
An act, which has now been billed as distasteful.
In response to the strip tease, users of social networking site Twitter took to the medium to weigh in.
I respect that Madonna supports Malala but a striptease in support of a girl who supports education is so irrelevant. twitter.com/HibahAqsa/stat…

Madonna wont be able to identify Pakistan on the map of the world, but she dedicate a song for #Malala? Shows the Power of US backed media

@mehrtarar Posting a prayer and taking your clothes off are two very different things. Esp when one plays into Taliban rhetoric.

Em, Pakistanis cross at MADONNA for her “inappropriate” nod to Malala Yousafzai, get a fucking life and try to focus on real problems?

Madonna honored Malala in the way she knew best. Lets appreciate that and not get caught up with trivialities. Thank you #Madonna
