 Malala, Kailash Satyarthi Share Peace Nobel


An Indo-Pak duo Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai have shared the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in promoting child rights in the sub-continent. 60-year-old Satyarthi, who runs an NGO that rescues children from forced labour and trafficking, and 17-year-old Malala, who shot to limelight after Taliban militants shot her for advocating girls' education, will share the honour.

 

 

Satyarthi, who runs the Bachpan Bachao Aandolan, has maintained the Gandhian traditions with peaceful protests while focusing on children's exploitation. Satyarthi is the second Indian after Mother Teresa to win the peace prize. Malala showed tremendous courage even after the Taliban attack when she decided to contunue her campiagn for girls education in Pakistan. Malala, was airlifted to Birmingham for treatment of her injuries. With this honour, she has become the youngest Nobel laureate ever.

 

She addressed the UN last year, met US Prez Obama and was named by TIME as one of the 100 most influential people and came out with her memoirs ‘I Am Malala’.
