Malala Yousafzai, Pakistan’s teenage Nobel Laureate has called on the United Nations, Pakistan and India to work together to improve conditions in Kashmir. She urged India and Pakistan to stop the ongoing Inhumanity in Kashmir in her statements.
She said, “The Kashmiri people, like people everywhere, deserve their fundamental human rights… They should live free of fear and repression”, added, “I call on the United Nations, the international community and India and Pakistan to work together with utmost urgency to right these wrongs, providing the people of Kashmir with the dignity, respect, and freedom they deserve“.
Malala said that due to the weeks-long curfew imposed in Kashmir “many schools have been closed… keeping children away from their classrooms.”
“I stand with the people of Kashmir. My 14 million Kashmiri sisters and brothers have always been close to my heart,” she said.
India sent an all-party delegation headed by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday to hold a meeting with various sections of the society and listened to their concerns as part of efforts to find a common solution.
The all-party delegation also met the representatives of various political parties.
The Hurriyat leaders, however, refused to meet with the all-party delegation for peace talks on Kashmir.
