Malalai Joya named to prestigious TIME 100 list of world’s most influential people

Joya has become renown around the world as a courageous advocate of women’s rights and a fierce critic of the NATO war in Afghanistan.

Time Magazine, April 29, 2010

Malalai Joya (JONATHAN EVANS _ EYEVINE)

TIME magazine today named Malalai Joya to the 2010 TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Joya has become renown around the world as a courageous advocate of women’s rights and a fierce critic of the NATO war in Afghanistan. The full list and related tributes appear in the May 10 issue of TIME, available on newsstands on Friday, April 30, and now at time.com.

Joya, now 32, was the youngest woman elected to the Afghan Parliament in 2005 but was later banished from her post because of her criticism of the warlords in Hamid Karzai’s government. Often referred to as “the bravest woman in Afghanistan”, she has survived five assassination attempts and lives an underground life today in Afghanistan, with relatives and supporters providing armed security at all times. Joya has traveled globally to speak out against the NATO occupation and the warlords, druglords and Taliban in her country, advocating instead for genuine democracy and independence for Afghanistan.

Memo to America: Stop Murdering My People

Amid increasing civilian deaths and resurgent warlordism, Afghan women's leader Malalai Joya writes that Hamid Karzai and the U.S. are losing credibility in Afghanistan day by day.

By Malalai Joya, The Daily Beast, April 19, 2010

Malalai Joya

Almost every day, the NATO occupation of our country continues to kill innocent people. Each time, it seems, military officials try to claim that only insurgents are killed, or they completely deny and cover up their crimes. The work of a few courageous journalists is the only thing that brings some of these atrocities to light.

For instance, it was only after the reporting of Jerome Starkey of the Times of London that officials admitted to the brutal Feb. 12 murder of two pregnant women, a teenage girl, and several young men in a night raid at a home where a family was celebrating the birth of a child.

یادداشتی به امریکا: کشتن هموطنان مرا متوقف کنید

افغان های ترقی خواه در پی آنند که این دایره جنگسالاری را برای همیشه از میان بردارند.

نویسنده: ملالی جویا، روزنامه بیست، ۱۹ اپریل ۲۰۱۰
ترجمه: فریدون رسولی

ملالی جویا

رهبر افغان ملالی جویا می گوید که کرزی و امریکا روز بروز اعتبار خود را در افغانستان از دست میدهند.

تقریبا هر روز اشغال ناتو در افغانستان جان تعداد زیادی از مردم بی گناه ما را می گیرد. در هر زمان مقامات امنیتی ادعا می کنند که درین حملات شورشیان کشته شده اند و کاملا این را رد کرده و بالای جنایات خود سرپوش می گذارند. تنها کار یک تعداد از ژورنالیست های دلیر است که گوشه ای از بیرحمی های آنان را بازگو می کنند.

بطور نمونه، بعد از گزارش جیورمی ستارکی خبرنگار تایمز لندن بود که مقامات کشتار وحشیانه ۱۲ فبروری را پذیرفتند که در نتیجه دو زن حامله، یک دختر نوجوان و تعدادی از مردان جوان در یک حمله شبانه در خانه ی شان، جایی که آنان مصروف جشن تولد یک طفل شان بودند به قتل رسیدند.

یورش های شبانه، حملات "اشتباهی" هوایی، آتش گشودن بالای موتر های غیر نظامی در محلات بازرسی- اشغالگران راه های زیادی را برای کشتار مردم افغانستان جستجو می کند. بهانه ها و دروغ ها در مورد این کشتار مانند نمک پاشیدن بالای زخم های مردم ماست. و جای تعجب نیست که اعتراضات در برابر نیروی های نظامی امریکا اوج می گیرد، مردم افغانستان به اندازه کافی رنج دیده اند.

A woman among warlords

DESPITE becoming a household word in Afghanistan after her defiant Loya Jirga address, Malalai Joya was disappointed as far as the constitution was concerned because she believed an Islamic nation would find opportunities to continue its oppression against women and minorities. Ever in support of the adoption of a secular constitution, she maintained that religion belonged to the realm of private personal belief and should be kept distinct from the public administration of justice.

An Afghan Politician Pushes for a Comeback

Her confrontational approach has made her the scourge of many of the powers that be in her country.

PARIS — The people who want to silence Malalai Joya, the youngest elected politician in Afghanistan, are doing a pretty good job of it in her own country.

She has been expelled from Parliament. She has been barred from appearing in the Afghan media after denouncing the role of the warlords in politics.

What is more, she has received so many death threats that she now lives what she calls a fugitive’s life, changing safe houses every night under the protection of her bodyguards and her burqa. Even the flowers at her wedding were checked for bombs.

The Bravest Woman in Afghanistan

Malalai Joya goes to extraordinary lengths just to stay alive.

Dheera Sujan. South Asia Wired, March 15th, 2010

Malalai Joya collecting one of her many international prizes

She’s been called “the bravest woman in Afghanistan”. But then again, Malalai Joya comes from a country where you’re taking your life in your hands by simply speaking your mind. It’s a risk that the elected parliamentarian takes daily.

Malalai Joya’s demands for basic rights for women have earned her a place on the Taliban’s most hated list, and when in 2007 she denounced some of her country’s most excessive warlords, aka, fellow MP’s, they responded by publicly threatening her with rape and execution. She is still fighting her suspension from Parliament.

True grit

One of the most moving chapters in Malalai’s book deals with her experiences as a teacher.

Rahul Banerjee, The Statesman (India), 13 March 2010

Malalai Joya

The courage of Malalai Joya serves not only as a commentary on the current Afghan situation, but is also a reminder that in an atmosphere of deceit, duplicity and relentless violence, there are still some like her who dare to speak the truth and have the courage to face dire consequences, writes Rahul Banerjee.

UNRAVELLING the imbroglio in Afghanistan would require disentangling the many interwoven historical strands responsible for the current situation. Some of these strands are, of course, political whereas others are economic and cultural. This complicated task would probably require special expertise but a complementary approach could lie in tracing the lives of particular Afghans, whether eminent or ordinary, their successes and failures, trials and tribulations, to gain insight into the nature of the historical forces at work.

One such extraordinary life is that of Malalai Joya who, in the very recent past, was the youngest elected woman member of the Afghan parliament. Her experience (she is only in her 30s) serves not only as a commentary on the current Afghan situation, but also reminds us that in an atmosphere of deceit, duplicity and relentless violence, there are still some like Malalai who dare to speak the truth and have the courage to face dire consequences.

Malalai Joya – The voice from the Country where killing a woman is easier than killing a bird

Malalai Joya in Italy
In 2005, Malalai Joya became the youngest member of the Afghan parliament, representing Farah province.

Malalai Joya is a women’s rights activist, politician and one of the bravest women in Afghanistan. I am meeting her in Parma where she has been invited to speak by the Lions Club Parma Maria Luigia during her staying in Italy.

It is a rainy dark day and the taxi drops me in front of the University of Parma at 4.45pm. I enter the hall, pass by the room where I discussed my final dissertation, many years ago, and walk in the dark corridor with the high ceiling and the statues lined against the walls, which still kind of intimidate me. The conference is scheduled at 5pm in the Aula Magna (the main room), which is used only in very special occasions – the only time I had been there was when the University gave me a tribute in memory of my father.
