ملالی جویا در کانادا

ملالی را که نگاه می کنید انگار خود افغانستان است، شکننده، اما ایستاده و پر خروش. صدایش آنقدر آرام است که گاهی به سختی شنیده می‌شود اما مفهوم کلامش صریح است و بی‌تعارف. ملالی متولد ۲۵ اپریل ۱۹۷۸ است.

KABUL: More than two dozen international writers and activists have called for the immediate reinstatement of a blunt woman member of Afghan Parliament.

They said the case of Malalai Joya, the 29-year-old elected representative suspended from the Wolesi Jirga (Lower House of Parliament) in May this year, required the urgent attention of the international community.

In a press release emailed to Pajhwok Afghan News on Thursday, 25 activists and writers living in countries whose governments are at war in Afghanistan and back the Hamid Karzai administration voiced support to the suspended parliamentarian.

Enemies of Happiness poster

"In September 2005, Afghanistan held its first parliamentary elections in 35 years. Among the candidates for 249 assembly seats was Malalai Joya, a courageous, controversial 27-year-old woman who had ignited outrage among hard-liners when she spoke out against corrupt warlords at the Grand Council of tribal elders in 2003. ENEMIES OF HAPPINESS is a revelatory portrait of this extraordinary freedom fighter and the way she won the hearts of voters, as well as a snapshot of life and politics in war-torn Afghanistan.

Canada’s combat role criticized

But suspended MP from Afghanistan doesn’t want Canucks to leave

By Markus Ermisch, Kamloops This Week, November 10, 2007

Malalai Joya’s reputation as an uncompromising, relentless critic of Afghanistan’s parliament and administration seemed to be at odds with the tone of her brief guest lecture at Thompson Rivers University on Sunday.

The 29-year-old, who was suspended from parliament for the duration of her four-year term in May because of her verbal attacks against the Afghan government, spoke in a soft voice about the plight of the people in her war-ravaged country.

To be sure, the facts she mouthed quietly to the packed auditorium were staggering — 95 per cent of women in the Asian country suffer from depression; every 28 minutes a woman in Afghanistan dies during childbirth — but the fiery orator many in the audience had expected was nowhere to be heard.

Meet Afghanistan's 'bravest woman'

"I'm from a land of tragedy called Afghanistan," said Malalai Joya

The so-called bravest woman in Afghanistan is a petite 29-year-old, with a soft voice and a polite, reserved demeanor. But when the recently ousted member of parliament speaks of the cost of championing human rights in her home country - and her resolve to continue doing so - her dark eyes command attention.

"I'm from a land of tragedy called Afghanistan," said Malalai Joya, who spoke at Dalhousie University yesterday as part of her Canadian tour to promote a shift in foreign policy - away from occupation, toward education.

Joya earned her title from the BBC for speaking out against the "warlords and druglords" she says control Afghanistan's parliament, to which she was elected in 2005. She was thrust into the global spotlight when she was ejected in May for allegedly slandering fellow MPs.

TRU gets a chance to see history in the flesh

She has been called the bravest woman in Afghanistan — and she is just that.

About 18 months ago, I read an article on a website about a young parliamentarian whose colleagues — while sitting in session — threw bottles at her, puller her hair, knocked over chairs and yelled out threats.

All this because she spoke the truth.

Malalai Joya, the youngest person ever elected to the Afghan parliament, interrupted a former warlord — the parliament is filled with former warlords now masquerading as politicians — who was praising the Mujahadin, a Muslim-based military force.

Most Canadians can only experience “hell on Earth” in their nightmares, but for Afghan MP Malalai Joya, it is an every day reality.

Joya was invited to share some of her experiences at Toronto’s Steelworkers Hall at 25 Cecil St. on Nov. 6. She was very outspoken about the horrors that she and other women in Afghanistan face on a day-to-day basis.

Joya says that safety is her main concern and in her view, when the U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan, it did not solve any problems; it escalated them.

Six years after Canadian troops were deployed to Afghanistan, Malalai Joya, a former Afghan parliamentarian, speaks from the belly of the so-called beast.

Twenty-nine year old Joya, who was born in Afghanistan but grew up in refugee camps in Iran and Pakistan, is a women's rights activist and former member of the Afghan parliament, the Loya Jirga. Currently, she's on a speaking tour in Canada and will be visiting Halifax this week with an arsenal of words---her weapon of choice in the 'war on terror.'

Controversial Afghan parliamentarian visits Vancouver

Calls on Canada to 'act independently' and break from U.S. policy

Mike Howell, Vancouver Courier, November 7, 2007

She is a politician who is prepared to die.

As a member of Afghanistan's legislature, Malalai Joya says she has received death threats and her house has been shot up for reasons she believes are connected to her criticism of the country's government.

In December 2003, she famously spoke out against the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, saying it was dominated by warlords. She also described the country's 249-seat legislature as worse than an animal stable, "like a zoo." Since her denouncement--and subsequent suspension from the legislature--the 29-year-old Joya said her life is in danger. It has forced her to travel in Afghanistan under a burqa with armed bodyguards.

Warlords no better than Taliban, says Afghan MP

Taliban make use of the situation and become powerful.

Michael Stittle, CTV.ca News, November 7, 2007

Joya in Canada

As Afghan police scrambled to the scene of a bomb blast Tuesday that killed five lawmakers and dozens of children, Malalai Joya, haunted by death threats and assassination attempts in Afghanistan, sat on the other side of the world, clutching a cup of tea with her eyes cast downward.

"This is not the first suicide bomb in Afghanistan and it will not be the last," she warned. "The problem is that the victims are always innocent victims -- especially children."

Canada must pull its troops out of Afghanistan and no longer support a government full of "warlords, drug lords and criminals" if it wants to aid in rebuilding the stricken nation and avoid another 9/11, says a controversial Afghan politician.

"(Canada) must act independently and not follow the policy of the United States," says Malalai Joya, 29, a firebrand currently on a nationwide speaking tour that brings her to Toronto tomorrow night.
