Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai arrives in Pakistan to visit flood-affected areas

She went to her residence under strict security after arriving in Karachi

Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai landed in Karachi, Pakistan, on Tuesday to visit areas of the country heavily impacted by the floods.

Malala and her parents arrived in Karachi via Qatar Airways, and they were then taken to her home under strict security.

The recipient of the peace prize plans to visit and speak with victims in flood-affected areas after flooding wreaked havoc across Pakistan.

Malala was shot in 2012 by a Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) assailant after she was singled out for her campaign opposing militants’ attempts to prevent women from obtaining an education.

She went on to become the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize as a result of her support for education.

After being attacked, she moved to London, and this is her second trip back to Pakistan. She came to Pakistan in March 2018 for a four-day visit.

Since Malala is visiting Pakistan, it should also be mentioned that long-gone militancy in Swat has also returned in Swat.

Taliban’s presence and activities in Swat are increasing, and locals are protesting every other day against local administrations and government to not let terrorism rise again in the area.
