Following the announcement of activist Malala Yousafzai winning the Nobel Prize, twitterati took to the social media network to congratulate the youngest Nobel Prize winner.

She was also termed as the ‘pride’ of Pakistan by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Ahmed Shah, Malala’s school teacher and uncle, told AFP: “Malala is a pride for Pakhtunkhwa and Pakistan,” referring to the country’s insurgency-wracked northwest province.

“She raised her voice for the injustices in a society where women can’t even speak.”

Ayesha Khalid, who was at school with Malala, added: “It’s not Malala alone winning this award, the girls of Pakistan have won it.

“Malala is the light of our eyes and the voice of our heart.

“She has proved that you can’t put a halt to education by blowing up schools”.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan also congratulated Malala.

” Education for women is Pakistan’s top priority and I am glad she won an award for it,” Imran said.

Some of the congratulatory tweets can be viewed below:

You have shown grace where all have shown contempt. You are the light where all is dark.you are the spark of pakistan, the torch, hope. May you find a way to fulfill all your dreams, because i believe in your dreams.

    It’s great .. Malala a 17 year old girl received prestigious Nobel prize for peace 2014 … Really to be frank & open such sorts of appreciation is lacking in people of AP. especially from a few people from nellore . But none of us achieved such a great award inspite of having qualifications like MBBS, MD, Phd, B-tech…. People of AP , especially from nellore give preference only for qualification … But Malala even though not having such degrees recieved a great honour … Malala hat’s off to you … you are the inspiration for many youngsters of our state of AP , Nellore area …Not only for them for senior lecturers like me of 30 years of age … Keep going … you will receivemany such awards … god bless you …

    Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai on becoming the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the second Nobel Prize Winner from Pakistan. Brave girl indeed.
    I expect Pakistani people will give her befitting welcome back home, even though the nation’s past behavior with the first Nobel Laureate (Dr Abdus Salam) had been quite embarrassing.
