Gordon Brown: 'Breakthrough moment for Pakistan' in education rights

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is in Pakistan today, met two of Malala's friends who were injured in the attack and said there was now a real momentum for change in the country.

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.

– Gordon Brown MP
