But some Pakistanis have always been critics of Malala, favouring conspiracy theories claiming she is "a Western agent" or was actually shot by the Central Intelligence Agency.
She says: "It is now actually happening and I am here" and that she will continue to campaign for the education of girls.
The reception included senior government functionaries, leading social activists, lawmakers and guests from her home region of Swat who came to welcome the young woman they dubbed "daughter of Pakistan". From growing up in Swat - it was such a lovely place - to then seeing terrorism and extremism from 2007 till 2009. Malala strongly advocated education through her diary, which was featured on BBC Urdu.
"I am just 20-year-old, even then I had endured so much in life, if it were up to me, I would never have left this place", Malala continued to a thunderous applause from the audience. "I had no choice, I had to leave for my life". "So, we should invest in education of these children".
While her campaigning has taken her around the world, Yousafzai has also harbored a desire to return to her homeland.
Since then, she has become a worldwide symbol of female empowerment, founding the Malala Fund, a charity dedicated to giving all girls access to education, with her father, Ziauddin.
He was speaking at a ceremony in honor of Malala at the Prime Minister Office in Islamabad today (Thursday). "It is your home. But she was not given permission due to security concerns", said one relative, who declined to be identified.
"We won't ask men to change the world, we're going to do it ourselves", Malala said.
Abbasi said Pakistan had fought a successful war against terrorism and rid the country of this menace.

Malala was dressed in Pakistani shalwar kameez and dupatta.
"Pakistan welcomes "Gul Makai" to her home".
"No one hates Malala We hate the mindset working behind her".
Ms Yousafzai, who now lives in the United Kingdom where she was airlifted for treatment, said: "Today is the happiest moment of my life".
The Pakistan army has tightened security following Malala's visit to Islamabad as the Taliban has promised to attack Malala again as she survived, CNN reports.
The activist, who was treated in Birmingham following the 2012 shooting, was the youngest ever victor of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 and now studies at Oxford University.
She was awarded Nobel Peace Prize in December 2014.
Unable to return to Pakistan after her recovery, Malala moved to Britain, setting up the Malala Fund and supporting local education advocacy groups with a focus on Pakistan, Nigeria, Jordan, Syria and Kenya.
She is now studying at Oxford University. Yousafzai has repeatedly responded to the criticism with a grace far outstripping her years, often saying education is neither Western, nor Eastern.
