Who would you want as a role model: Hina Khan or Amy Childs?

Hina Khan and Amy ChildsTwo weeks ago, there was widespread condemnation of the Taliban, when they shot Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai in the head for speaking out about girls’ education.

Now, another Pakistani schoolgirl, 17-year-old Hina Khan, has been threatened for doing the same thing and has asked the Pakistani Government for extra protection – something they seem unwilling to give.

Now compare the actions of Hina and Malala with one of Britain’s current, most high-profile role-models, Amy Childs, famous for being the country’s self-proclaimed ‘vajazzle queen’ and appearing in reality TV shows.

I know Pakistan and the UK are very different countries, but step back for a second and compare the two.
