In October 2012, Malala — then 15-years-old — was shot in the head at point-blank range by Taliban gunmen as she was returning from her school in Swat valley. She suffered bullet injuries and was admitted to the Military Hospital Peshawar and then taken to London for further treatment.
Later Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan took responsibility, saying they attacked the girl for her “pro-peace, anti-Taliban and ‘secular’ agenda”.
The shooting drew widespread international condemnation and she was subsequently sent to Britain for treatment.
In 2014, Malala became the youngest recipient of Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17, in recognition of her efforts for children’s rights.
