The Sindh government has decided to restore the original name of the Malala Yousafzai Government Girls Secondary School on Karachi’s Mission Road after social media backlash.

The school was initially named Seth Kooverji Khimji Lohana Gujarati School after a Gujrati social worker. The school was renamed after the Pakistani activist, Malala Yousafzai, on the 6th of February 2012.

Following this, the father of the Nobel prize laureate, Ziauddin Yousafzai, took to Twitter and responded to the human rights activist Kapil Dev’s tweet. The activist had requested the Sindh Education Minister, Saeed Ghani, to rethink the decision. Kapil also commented that new schools should be opened to honor Malala Yousafzai.

Ziauddin tweeted that the school’s original name must be restored. “We are obliged to respect our history.”

In this regard, the Sindh Education Minister shared that he has ordered a thorough report on the matter. “The name will be revert officially after the due process, but surely any other school will be named after Malala,” he assured.
