Malala to leave for London after four-day trip in Pakistan
Islamabad: Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousaf Zai and her family left for London from Benazir International Airport Monday morning.
The young activist, who was accompanied by her parents, returned to Pakistan early Thursday morning, more than five years after she left the country following an assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012.
During her visit, Malala met the prime minister and a delegation of civil society and women’s rights activists in Islamabad.
Later, she also visited her hometown of Swat, amid tight security, along with her family, where she interacted with her friends and relatives.
Visiting the Prime Minister Office on Thursday, Malala addressed the gathering where she said she was happy to be home after five-and-a-half years.
The 20-year-old also thanked the army and government for the role they played in her return to the county, adding that without them this would not have been possible.
She further talked about her mission of providing education to children. “We want to work for the education of children and make it possible that every girl in Pakistan receives a high-level education and she can fulfill her dreams and become a part of society.”
