PESHAWAR, 8 July: Youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai completed her school education and joined Twitter on Friday.

The 19-year-old Malala said in her Twitter message that she is concerned about millions of girls who don’t have facility of getting education.

“I know that millions of girls around the world are out of school and may never get the opportunity to complete their education,” she wrote.

By the day’s end, Malala was pushing 400,000 followers. She emphasised the need for promoting women’s education. She said she is planning to carry out a global campaign in this regard in summer vacations.

Malala got fame for raising voice for women’s education during Operation Rah-e-Rast in Swat despite severe difficulties and threats to her life. In October 2012, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for demanding that girls have the right to an education. She recovered and went on to attend school in the UK. Now she has spread her mission of promoting girls’ education from Pakistan to the whole world.
