While Malala Yousufzai addressed the UN General Assembly on July 12, a day which also marks her 16th birthday, Twitteratis took to the social networking website to voice their opinion.

Some hailed her for being courageous and brave for standing up against the Taliban while others called her speech a "made-up act".

Some called her names and a 'Western Agent'.

#Malala was also the top most trending topic in Pakistan on Friday evening.

dear PAKISTANis and Muslim fellows. i dont know hen we will come of this denial state that west and Jews are against us.who is killing shia tribe in Pakistan , who is doing suicidal in mosques(taliban takes the responsibility of suicidal).if Saudi and UAE can prosper with links with west and using their technology so what is the harm in it.west gave nationality to Muslims but how Muslim countries gave citizenship to Pakistan.what we have achieved in Afghanistan n the last 30 years , we have given orphans and widows to Afghanistan.why we are so much after Islamic law, if you see in details most of practice laws are same as islamic law like justice , social security, much more blood is needed to this religious people.Malala is the daughter of the nation and proud of puhthoons.we need more courageous people like her for representation of true islam and pakistani and puhthoon. salute to you.
