KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday congratulated Malala Yousafzai over telephone on winning the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and invited her to work with him for transformation of education system in Sindh.

In a telephonic conversation, he said his late mother Benazir Bhutto was alive in the shape of Malala, adding that every girl of Pakistan had the potential to become Benazir.

After winning the prestigious global award, the teen education rights campaigner had dedicated her Nobel peace prize to “voiceless” children around the world on Friday.

Malala moved to Britain for medical treatment after being shot in the head by a Taliban fighter in October 2012, an attempt to silence her vocal advocacy of the right of girls to go to school.

Bilawal said that education was the best tool to eradicate extremism from the society and Malala could play a pivotal role in this regard as a torch-bearer.

The young PPP leader said Malala has given hope to him and the entire country and she is the voice of ‘real youth’ of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Pakistan.

“This daughter of Pakistan is the ambassador of peace and our national heroine,” he concluded.
