“I have seen doomsday and survived, you might say. Malala has been honoured by the nation, by the world, by people of all classes, of all creeds, of all colours. I am grateful for that. But I am a father. I respect all those feelings but the only priority now is the life of my daughter and her total rehabilitation.

“I don’t need any awards or political bullshit. I need my daughter.”
