2014 Nobel Peace Prize Shared Between Maala Yousafzai and

The Nobel Peace Prize 2014 The Fighter of Human Rights, School For Girls, Paid Near Ultimate Price…In a World Where Ethical Muslim Men of Honor Mowed Down By Blackwater and Affiliates To Insure That Only Islam Militants Thrive Will Never Do In Today’s World Ever Again!


OSLO, Norway (AP) — Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan and Kailash Satyarthi of India won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for risking their lives to fight for children’s rights. The decision made Malala,  17-year-old  education activist, became world’s youngest Nobel winner, sharing her status with another worthy soul.

Celebration kicked off on the streets of Mingora in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, citizens were happy to learn of the information and sharing sweets

When she was a student at her father’s school, Malala was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman 2 years ago for wanting  girls  to have a right to education. She survived several operations with the help of British medical care and continued on with her activism and studies.

Satyarthi, 60, has been at the forefront of a global movement to end child slavery and exploitative child labor since 1980, when he gave up his career as an electrical engineer. The grassroots activist has led the rescue of tens of thousands of child slaves and developed a successful model for their education and rehabilitation. He has also survived several attempts on his life.

“Child slavery is a crime against humanity. Humanity itself is at stake here. A lot of work still remains but I will see the end of child labor in my lifetime,” Satyarthi told The Associated Press at his office in New Delhi. “If any child is a child slave in any part of the world, it is a blot on humanity. It is a disgrace.”

Malala’s father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, said the decision will further the rights of girls.

“(The Nobel will) boost the courage of Malala and enhance her capability to work for the cause of girls’ education,” he told the AP.

Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said the decision “has given pride to the whole of Pakistan.”

The Nobel committee’s announcement reflected a delicate diplomatic balance, naming one activist from Pakistan and another from India, two countries that are long-time bitter rivals; one Muslim and one Hindu; both sexes; an elder statesman of child’s rights and a youthful advocate who had herself been a victim.

Committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland said it was important to reward both an Indian Hindu and a Pakistani Muslim for joining “in a common struggle for education and against extremism.” The two will split the Nobel award of $1.1 million.

By highlighting children’s rights, the committee widened the scope of the peace prize, which in its early days was given for efforts to end or prevent armed conflicts.

“It is a prerequisite for peaceful global development that the rights of children and young people be respected,” the committee said. “In conflict-ridden areas in particular, the violation of children leads to the continuation of violence from generation to generation.”

Many around the world praised the Nobel committee for focusing on children.

“The true winners today are the world’s children,” said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, praising Satyarthi’s “heroic work” and Malala’s “courage and determination.”

“The biggest threat to the Taliban is a girl with a book,” said Margot Wallstrom, Sweden’s foreign minister and a former U.N. envoy on Sexual Violence in Conflict.

Raised in Pakistan’s ruggedly beautiful, politically volatile Swat Valley, Malala was barely 11 years old when she began championing girls’ education, speaking out in TV interviews. The Taliban had overrun her hometown of Mingora, terrorizing residents, threatening to blow up girls’ schools, ordering teachers and students into all-encompassing burqas.

The Nobel Peace Prize 2014 was awarded jointly to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”

Michele Langevine Leiby December 9, 2014

From being shot by the Taliban in Pakistan in 2012 to becoming the youngest Nobel laureate two years later, here is a look back on Malala Yousafzai’s journey. (Nicki DeMarco/The Washington Post)

Her school uniform says it all — stained with blood, it is a painful symbol of sacrifice. It is the uniform young Malala Yousafzai was wearing on an October day two years ago when the Pakistani Taliban shot her for advocating a girl’s right to an education.

History’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner said this month that she donated her dark-blue-and-white uniform for the 2014 Peace Prize exhibition in Oslo because “it is an important part of my life.”

“Now I want to show it to children, to people all around the world,” Yousafzai, 17, said in an interview conducted for the exhibition. “This is my right, it is the right of every child, to go to school. This should not be neglected.”

On Wednesday, Yousafzai is to accept her Nobel at a ceremony in Oslo. Her very survival and her accomplishments since the shooting – including addresses at the United Nations and the World Bank, writing a book and establishing a foundation – would seem to guarantee that the cause won’t be neglected. But stopping the Islamist extremists bent on suppressing equal rights for girls and women is another matter.

The Pakistani Taliban has continued blowing up schools for girls in Pakistan’s tribal areas, and, across the border, the Afghan Taliban has conducted poison attacks on  schools to discourage attendance.

(And we hardly need to mention Nigeria’s Boko Haram – a band of girl-kidnapping fanatics whose very name characterizes Western education as a sin in their version of Islam.)

“Malala is the symbol of the infidels and obscenity,” a Pakistani Taliban spokesman said the day his movement asserted responsibility for sending a gunman to kill a schoolgirl. Actually, they could not have picked a better symbol to undermine their own cause.

Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, summed it up in a tweet the day the Nobel was announced.
