Bilawal met with Malala

BIRMINGHAM: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who is visiting Britain these days, called on Malala Yousafzai to congratulate her on becoming the second Pakistani after Dr Abdus Salam to win a Nobel prize.
“Met Malala @MalalaFund to congratulate her on winning the #NobelPeacePrice,” said a tweet that appeared on the PPP leader’s Twitter handle.
Yousafzai, the child rights activist, is the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
The young leader of one of Pakistan’s largest political parties spent a whole morning with Yousafzai family at their Birmingham residence.
“Spent the morning in Birmingham with @MalalaFund & her family. @ZiauddinY”, said he in another tweet.
The son of former president Asif Ali Zardari and slain prime minister of Pakistan Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, was also accompanied by his sisters, Bakhtawar, and Aseefa Bhutto Zardari.
Yousafzai, who currently lives in Britain, rose to prominence in Pakistan by campaigning for girls’ right to education.
In October 2012, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman and is regarded with suspicion and hatred among many in Pakistan.
Evacuated to Britain, she made a remarkable recovery and today attends school and flies around the world to champion for universal access to education through her Malala Fund charity
