I believe that in Pakistan, the silent majority is speaking and that there is now a national consensus that the country can delay no longer in ensuring girls and boys have schools to go to and teachers to teach them.
This has been a breakthrough moment for Pakistan and now we must turn Pakistan's new ambitions and popular determination into delivery on the ground.
Dr Shahzad Ahmed. a specialist in ear, nose and throat surgery at the BMI Hospital in Edgbaston, describes the injuries suffered by Ummad Farooq after the shooting and the hour long procedure in which the bullet was removed through his nose.

Ummad Farooq, who's 22, and studying for a MBA at Sunderland University, was attending a wedding in Karachi when he was gunned down.
His newly-wed brother died in the attack, and his father is in intensive care.
“I only went to Pakistan a few weeks ago for my brother’s wedding. After the wedding, we were attacked as we returned home from Friday prayers.
“My father was driving the car while I, my two uncles and my newly-wed brother’s father-in-law were in the car. My brother was riding a bike. As we were half way home, we heard a gunshot. My father saw from the side mirror that my brother was on the ground and was bleeding. He had been fatally wounded.
“As Papa stopped the car, there were two men on a bike who opened fire on us. My father got shot with five bullets that are still in his body. He is fighting for his life in intensive care in a hospital in Pakistan."
