A Historic Homecoming: Malala returns to Pakistan


Malala Yousafzai was only fifteen years old when she was shot in the head by the Taliban militants. Her destiny did not let her succumb to the fatal injuries inflicted by the gun shot. She turned herself into a powerful weapon against the Taliban, which tried to eliminate her from the mother earth mercilessly.

The Islamic militants of her country, Pakistan, wanted her to stop speaking in favour of the ‘Girl Education’.

The gun shot did not fear her. Instead, it encouraged her to speak more loudly about the ‘Girl Education’.

Malala, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, now runs a global organisation, named Malala Fund, for the ‘Girl Education’, and is studying in one of the world’s most prestigious university, Oxford, for her degree course in politics, philosophy and economics.

The twenty year old educational activist, who is currently settled in the United Kingdome for the purpose of study and due to some security concerns, is at present on a brief visit to her homeland form where she was once expelled by the militants through the gun shot.

Certainly, her homecoming is a strong message to those Islamic militants and Pakistani Islamic conservatives who believe that girls are not supposed to gain education and must stay inside the four walls of their home doing household activities.
