Benazir Bhutto is my idol: Malala Yousafzai to Asif Ali Zardari
London: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari made a visit to the hospital in Birmingham in which the teenage women's education rights activist Malala Yousafzai is recovering from the gunshot wounds.

Zardari's daughter Aseefa Bhutto Zardari also accompanied him to Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Saturday, said the sources of Pakistan.

The President was told about the condition of Malala by Hospital's Director Dave Rosser.

President's daughter presented a shawl to the young crusader. It was the first time when Zardari met Malala.

An anti-human group of Taliban had attacked her on October 9, 2012, while she was returning home from a school bus through a Taliban-held Swat Valley. Later, Taliban took the responsibility of the attack and said that it is the punishment for raising voice for girls' education.

The attackers had shot a series of bullets to kill the activist, but she suffered a bullet which penetrated through her head to end in her shoulder. The doctor had said about her condition, I don't believe that a schoolgirl suffered such a kind of brain damage.

"The nation is proud to have such girls like Malala and her schoolmates Shazia and Kainaat. The government has made up its mind to provide education to all girl child at any cost," said the President.

"We are providing education to all the girl child to fight the extremist mindset in a proper way in the country," he added.

Malala said her family and the people of Swat were grateful to the government for the quick arrangement for her treatment at the best hospitals in Pakistan and Britain.

She termed Benazir Bhutto, who was the former Prime Minister and wife of President Zardari, as her idol and said that she would love to follow her footsteps.

Zardari thanked the world for praying for the long life of the daughter of Pakistan and said that the prayers have kept her breathing.

He termed Malala as the path driver of millions of Pakistani girls and women.

President Zardari also thanked the British government and the management and staff of Queen Elizabeth Hospital for providing the best medical care to fearless activist.

He said that he has all the appreciations for the United Nations Secretary Ban Ki-moon, The UNESCO and other international organisations which stood in support of the Pakistani girl.

Malala's father Zia-ud-Din Yousafzai, who is staying with her in the hospital, thanked the President for his support to his daughter.
