Like Malala’s father, he runs a private school in Mingora.

However, the Swat Valley remains a tense place. Only last month, several hundred students in Mingora protested plans to have their school named after Malala, saying it would make the institution a target for the Taliban.

Malala’s father vowed to return to Pakistan with his family once Malala is fully recovered.

“I thank the whole of Pakistan and all other well-wishers for praying for her and our family,” he said. “What I am doing here is all temporary, and God willing we all will return to our homeland.”
