Malala Yousafzai who is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner has returned to her home country after being self-imposed exile for six years.

She is expected to meet Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during her visit to Islamabad.

In 2012, a member of Taliban attacked Malala for attending school. Malala was only 14 years old when she was attacked. She was immediately air-lifted to Great Britain for treatment after the attack.

After recovering, she decided to fight for the right for girls to attend school and established the Malala Fund in 2013 to assist girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan on their education. She received the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts for fighting for girls’ education in the year 2014.

The Pakistan army has tightened security following Malala’s visit to Islamabad as the Taliban has promised to attack Malala again as she survived, CNN reports.
