Pakistan’s Malala moment

Source: ET

Malala Yousufzai on December 10 made history as she became the world’s youngest winner of the Nobel peace prize award. Aged only 17, the teenager from Swat collected the peace prize in Oslo alongside Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi, 60, who has worked tirelessly to rescue children from abusive situations and to raise awareness about children held as slaves. There was symbolism, too, in the fact that the two recipients of the award belonged to different generations and to two neighbouring countries fiercely hostile to each other. Malala addressed this point as she called for both countries to make education their priority.

  1. Well done Malala. You will see dawn in your country. It is unfortunate that both Noble prize winners have not willingly been owned by Pakistan. In both cases religious clerics are to be blamed. But it is said, “US KAY HAAN DAIR HAI UNDHAIR NAHIN” A time will come when historians will term the current era as dark one and will curse those who caused this era to be so.
