Malala Yousafzai reveals why she visited Pakistan?

ISLAMABAD:Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has revealed that why she visited Pakistan after so many years.

She said that the purpose of her visit was to let the world know that her country is peaceful.

“In the outside world, internationally, there are concerns that Pakistan is a terrorist country or there is no peace in Pakistan," she said. "So, my trip was important to give the message that there is peace in Pakistan and the people of Pakistan have stood against extremists,” she said in an interview with the Voice of America.

Malala, who made a surprise four-day visit to her homeland, returned back to Britain today.

The young activist and her family departed from Islamabad airport at 10amMonday morning via a private airline.

Yousafzai, who is currently studying at Oxford University, visited the PM House and her hometown in Swat during the visit. She also campaigned for Malala Fund, which is working towards educating girls in Pakistan and other countries.

Accompanied by her parents, the young activist flew to Pakistan early Thursday morning, more than five years after she left the country following an assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2012.
