Mala Yusafzai, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and educational activist, posted on Twitter earlier today the news of the lifting of peaceful elections in the increasingly fierce conflict in Kashmir.
Malala has been a regular commentator on politics and global affairs, and she has written about her feelings for Kashmiri in her life in Pakistan.
“Since I was a child, the Kashmiri have been living in harmony because my mother and father are children because my grandfather is very young.”
Her letter focuses on the plight of Kashmiri children, as Malala is always concerned with the best interests of the child. “For 70 years, Kashmiri children have grown up in violent incidents,” he said.
Yousafzai said he cares about Kashmir because “South Asia is my home and I share a house with 1.8 billion people including Kashmiri.”
“Today, I am concerned about the safety of children and Kashmiri women, who are the most vulnerable to violence and may be the most in conflict,” Yousafzai noted, and some groups are more vulnerable in wartime than others.
“We may have any differences… We need to peacefully seek to resolve this seven-year conflict in Kashmir.”
Malala’s statement was issued after the Indian government renounced Kashmir’s special status on Monday, when tens of thousands of troops arrived, and some Internet and mobile phones were cut off in an area widely criticized by India.
Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was amended on August 5, giving the Kashmir Constitution and freedom of choice in all matters of national defense, diplomacy and diplomacy.
The article also prohibits the permanent settlement of external factors, the purchase of land, the work of the government and the protection of education.
