Malala Yousufzai Story of Struggle and Receiving Hate from Pakistan

A Pakistani women's activist said Friday that Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai is hoping to visit her Swat Valley hometown but that the trip depended on security clearances from the government.

Ms. Yousafzai, who has said that she wants to run for Prime Minister one day, added: "It is my plan to return to Pakistan after completion of my education, because it is my country and I have equal rights on it like any other Pakistani".

Yousafzai and her family arrived in the town of Mingora, in the Swat Valley, via helicopter from Islamabad provided by the Pakistani military after arriving in the Pakistani capital on Thursday flanked by heavy security. Malala on her return to Pakistan said, "I still cannot believe that this is happening in reality, I have seen this dream in the last five years that I can keep my foot in my country".

She sobbed upon entering the home where relatives, former classmates and friends had been anxiously waiting since morning to welcome her with flowers and hugs. Two Taliban jumped on bus that took her from school home and shot her in head.

Malala reiterated her joy of being in Pakistan and her mission of providing education to children.

She called Swat "a piece of heaven".

Addressing the participants in the annual prize distribution ceremony of a private college here, he said now the whole world saluted Malala for her courage, dedication, great struggle for girls' education and determination.

She suffered bullet injuries and was admitted to the Military Hospital Peshawar and then taken to London for further treatment.

However she has also been met with pockets of intense criticism.

Malala returned to Pakistan in a surprise visit in the early hours of Thursday. But she told me that I had won the Peace Prize.

Yousafzai became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Prize at age 17 in 2014 for her work to advocate for girls' right to education.

"I left Swat with my eyes closed and now return with my eyes open", she told AFP, remembering her memory of how she was airlifted out in a state of comma after the Taliban attack. And it declared November 10 Malala Day - a day of action to focus on "Malala and the 32 million girls like Malala not at school".

"We welcome Malala and the slogan that she has raised - one pen, one teacher".

"People have positive as well as negative views about her", fellow resident Arshad Ali said. Let us see some mixed reactions.
