Dreamed of this day for 5 years: Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan
Lahore : Malala Yousafzai, who survived Taliban's assassination bid, came back to Pakistan after five years to the tragic attack, claiming to continue her battle for the education of women.
She returned to Pakistan with more courage and confidence, asking people to unite for the movement. Malala will be staying for four days and try to present the work done by her foundation to educate women.
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi welcomed her and noted the tragic day of attack with an assurance that Pakistan has come a long way ahead to overcome terrorism.
Addressing the gathering, Malala went emotional and shared how much she missed Pakistan while she was away for her treatment and education.
“I still cannot believe this is happening. I have dreamed of this day for five years. All the time I was in cars and planes around the world, I used to tell myself that I am back home in Pakistan. And it was never true,” she said between sobs of happiness.
“The attack happened and I had to leave home, everything was happening by itself. I could not control it,” she added.
It is still not clear if she will be visiting her hometown during her current visit to Pakistan.
