Malala Yousafzai addresses UN

London: Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai has said if attacked by the Taliban, she would talk to her intended killer about the importance of education.

This is the moment Malala, who was shot by the Taliban for championing girls' education, left US chat show host Jon Stewart speechless.

According to the Mirror, the 16-year-old rose to fame after being shot in the head and neck while on her way to school with other girls in Pakistan. She was later sent to Britain for treatment.

Malala left Stewart visibly stunned when she said that if attacked by the Taliban she would talk to her intended killer about the importance of education - rather than trying to defend herself physically, the report said.

She concluded by saying that that's what she wants to tell you, now do what you want.

This sparked a standing ovation from the audience, while Stewart so impressed he jokingly offered to adopt Malala.
