After receiving initial medical treatment in Pakistan, Malala was sent to the United Kingdom where she now resides with her family.

While she is arguably the most recognisable Pakistani in the world, Yousafzai - known nearly universally as Malala - is a polarising figure at home.

"It is now actually happening and I am here", Malala said while meeting Mr Abbasi at his office in Islamabad.

"I know that millions of girls around the world are out of school and may never get the opportunity to complete their education", Malala wrote at the time. Secrecy surrounded her arrival as well as details of her visit, which is expected to last until Monday. "We are delighted to see her back", she said.

Also on Thursday, the 20-year-old met with Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

Some say that Yousafzai return signifies the end of extremism in Pakistan and hopefully in the world at large.

The Nobel Laureate Malala Yousaf said today was the happiest moment of her life.

Ms Memon, who is the chairwoman of the Benazir Income Support Programme, tweeted "Welcome home @Malala" while minister Musadik Malik described her as a "homecoming queen".

The social activist in her brief speech said that she dreamt of returning back to the country while in UK.

Her autobiography "I am Malala" revealed a more girlish side - she was a fan of Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber and the "Twilight" series of vampire romance novels. "And then seeing how many difficulties women and girls face in our society, and how we can fight against those challenges", she said.

"I don't think she's done anything".

She said her focus was on education in Pakistan, adding that it was necessary to empower females through education.

At his encouragement, Malala started writing a blog for the BBC's Urdu service under a pseudonym in 2009, aged just 11, about life under the Taliban in Swat, which the Islamist militants had taken over in 2007.

In October 2012, masked gunmen stopped a bus taking Malala and some friends home from school and shot her. Two other girls also sustained gunshot wounds in the attack. In critical condition, Yousafzai was flown to the garrison city of Rawalpindi before being airlifted to Birmingham in Britain. She has established the Malala Foundation, which works for the promotion of girls education worldwide.

The shooting drew widespread global condemnation and she was subsequently sent to Britain for treatment.

Earlier this month she congratulated students on their first day at KKF Model School in Shangla - the school in Pakistan that was built with the help of her 2014 Nobel Peace Prize money.

Yousafzai's return Thursday made instant news in Pakistan.

Agha says that Pakistan is still not a safe place for rights activists, government and military critics, as well as journalists: "In the past, the army had conducted many operations against the terrorists; however, we have not seen the level of violence go down".
