It's Time To Heed Malala's Words After The Charleston Shootings

"I don't think there is anyone else I would rather talk to tonight other than Malala," Jon Stewart said in introducing the teen Nobel Prize winner.

Nobel Peace Prize winner and human rights activist Malala Yousafzai recently appeared on the grim episode of The Daily Show to share her thoughts on the Charleston shooting.

“I have seen these kinds of situations in my life when there's no justice, when there's no human feelings, and there's no humanity, and for a second, you think that no one has feelings at all,” she told Jon Stewart, offering her condolences and prayers to the families of the people who were killed in the attack.

The 16-year-old, who survived an assassination attempt from the Taliban in 2012, is perhaps one of the most uniquely qualified people to shed light on the horrors of gun violence. Even Stewart said that he couldn’t think of a better person to talk to than the peace activist herself.

Stewart also praised Yousafzai for her willingness to speak about such issues in society.

A documentary based on the life of Malala Yousafzai, He Named Me Malala, is set to hit the theaters Oct. 2.

Nine people were killed in the mass shooting at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, while the suspected shooter, Dylann Roof was arrested at a traffic stop in Shelby, North Carolina few hours later.
