Malala reaches Pakistan; yrs after she came under attack there

she is expected to hold meetings with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Well known activist and Nobel Laureate Malala Yosafzai reached Pakistan, more than five years after she had to quit the country after she survived an assassination bid on her life.

She has been advocating rights of the girls to education which did not go down well with the Taliban at the time and an assassination was attempted on her.

Malala Yousafzai, the 20-year-old, was accompanied by her parents and CEO of the Malala Fund.

In Pakistan itself, she is expected to hold meetings with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa as well as few others as well.

She is also slated to attend “Meet the Malala” programme during her four-day stay in Pakistan.

It was in October 2012 that 15-yr-old Yousafzai was shot in the head at point-blank range by Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) gunmen as she was returning from her school in Swat valley.
