Are some elements supporting Taliban's actions?
Hina criticised those trying to justify the attack on Malala and called on people to discourage such forces.
"If we fail to unite against the curse of terrorism, unfortunately, there will be no hope for the country. Today we need national integrity above everything," she said.
Across the country, children and ordinary people held special prayers for Malala's recovery.
In Karachi, students of a government-run school named after Malala expressed shock at the attempt of her life yesterday but said they would double their efforts to achieve the goals set by Malala, including education for all girls.
In Swat, where the army conducted a massive operation in 2009 to flush out the Taliban, all private educational institutions were closed to protest the attack.
A steady stream of people made their way to Malala's home in Mingora, the main town in Swat, to offer their support to her parents and relatives.
