What is Wrong With These Guys Who Are Dissing  Malala On Twitter?

At 15, she was shot in the head by a Taliban activist while she was returning from school.

At 16, she gave a speech at the UN and published her first autobiography.

At 17, she became the world’s youngest nobel laureate, who defied all adversaries and demanded that girls be allowed to receive education.

She is none other than Malala Yousafzai.

6 years after surviving the deadly assassination attempt on her, she has returned to her homeland, Pakistan.

Malala, who is now 20 years old, landed in Islamabad in the wee hours on Thursday.

While some welcomed “the brave daughter of Pakistan’’ with open arms, others attacked her on Twitter, denouncing her for being the “girl brainwashed by America.’’


“Malala is Back, Tall & Victorious”

Malala fans and admirers stood strong with her on the micro-blogging site.

“Treat Her Well, Pakistan...”


Haters Gonna Hate?

Malala will be in Pakistan till 2 April. She is expected to hold meetings with Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Details of the trip have been kept secret "in view of the sensitivity", an official told AFP news agency. It is not yet confirmed whether she will visit her family’s hometown during her visit.
