Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai celebrated on Thursday birthday of an Army Public School (APS) massacre survivor.
Malala’s father tweeted a photo that showed Waleed, the survivor, cutting the cake and being accompanied by his family.
Ziauddin Yousafzai hailed Waleed as a brave and resilient survivor of the APS attack in which more than 144 people, mostly teenagers, were killed by Taliban in December 2014.

The young educationist, who now lives in Birmingham, United Kingdom has been carrying out campaigns for addressing the woes of students amid expanding extremism in the country. She has also become the youngest United Nations Messenger of Peace.

The valiant activist came to prominence when a Taliban gunman shot her in the head in 2012 as punishment for campaigning for girls to go to school, which defied the militant group’s ban on female education.
Malala has since continued campaigning on the world stage and in 2014 became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner.
