The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
It was just announced a few days ago that the young girl from Pakistan who was shot in the head by the Taliban at the age of 15 and is now residing somewhere in the United kingdom Malala Yousafzai has been named the youngest Noble peace prize winner in history of that awards along with a 60 year old Indian Kailash Satyarthi who has been advocating for the abolishment of child labor for many years now. Along it was being discussed that Malala can be one of the winners but the lesser known Indian was surprise winner according to me. First of all I want to congratulate both of them for bringing an honor to their respective countries and they can now work even harder to fulfill the extra liability or burden that has come with this prize and I do hope that they will excel in their mission that they have now become famous for. But while Satyarthi is working in his own country, Malala is still a wanted girl in her own country and cannot go there without getting killed. Although naïve people are calling her to come back and fight for girls’ rights, you and I know that it is just a trap to silence this voice. Apart from this, there are many people who think that she is being used by the West to malign Pakistan and even their religion Islam. Although it is not true but the hatred of the regular so called Middle Class Pakis who use western technology but blame the west for all their ails hate anything that brings great awards to any individual Pakis anywhere in the world.
