Islamabad, February 7 (The Express Tribune): Pakistani Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai has been recognized quite a few times for her activism in girls’ education. Thee 20-year-old, who is currently studying at the Oxford University, was recently honored in India with an epic mural painting, with the likes of famous singer Lata Mangeshkar and sportswoman Mary Kom.
However, this is not the first time the activist has been honored for voicing girls’ right to education.
Previously, in an interview with news agency PTI, Malala said she is very excited about expanding her Malala Fund, Gulmakai Network to India, where she would want to work with the local people as they best understand the local issues and can suggest necessary solutions as well.
Excited to see so much “snow to the level of her height” on her first visit to Davos, the young activist agreed the issues were very much the same in India as they are in Pakistan with the two being one country before Partition, hence sharing the same culture.
Brimming with excitement while talking about India, Malala said, “The support that I have received from India has been overwhelming and I want to thank everyone in India for their love and support. I get so many letters of support from India.”
She said there was one girl who sent her a letter saying she wanted to be the Prime Minister of India!
