Ziauddin, father of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has written an open letter to the parents of the Nigerian schoolgirls who were abducted by terrorist group Boko Haram saying that Malala and he will not give up the battle.

According to ABC News, Malala and her father have become global advocates for education after Malala survived an attack on her by Taliban two years ago.

Ziauddin Yousafzai's letter came to the fore on the eve of the 300th day of the schoolgirls' abduction.

He showed complete solidarity to the parents saying that "we cannot rest until we have justice for your daughters and for all girls and boys kept out of school".
