Destroy knowledge. Because, Scientia Potentia Est

Equally; One who destroys knowledge, usurps power

Malala is a prime example of one who seeks knowledge, with a college keeping her name alive.

scientia potentia est

The phrase implies that with knowledge or education one’s potential or abilities in life will certainly increase. Having and sharing knowledge is widely recognised as the basis for improving one’s reputation and influence, thus power. This phrase may also be used as a justification for a reluctance to share information when a person believes that withholding knowledge can deliver to that person some form of advantage. Another interpretation is that the only true power is knowledge, as everything (including any achievement) is derived from it..

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Authorities in Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province have decided to rename a college after teenage activist Malala Yousafzai, who was shot and seriously wounded by the Taliban last week.

The decision to rename the Government Girls Degree College Saidu Sharif in the town of Mingora in Yousafzai’s native Swat Valley was made at a meeting earlier this week, in recognition of her efforts to promote girls’ education rights in the volatile region.

She was shot in the head last week by the Pakistani Taliban. She is currently receiving medical treatment in Britain.
