Malala Yousafzai says no to war

With the dangers of Indo-Pak war has been terrifying the people of both the nations, Pakistani activist and Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai has urged the Prime Ministers of the two countries to show true leadership by shaking hands to settle the current stand-off.

Malala, in a statement released on Twitter, said that “retaliation and revenge” is never the right response and the world doesn’t need another war. “As a Nobel Laureate, UN Messenger of Peace, a citizen of Pakistan and a student, I am alarmed by the escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan – and concerned for people living on both sides of the border. Everyone aware of the horrors of war would agree that retaliation and revenge is never the right response – once started, it rarely ends. Millions of people are suffering today because of existing wars – we don’t need another. Our world cannot even care for all the people currently in peril,” she said.

“I ask the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to show true leadership in this difficult time: to sit down, shake hands and settle the current conflict and long-standing issue of Kashmir through dialogue. I ask the international community to support talks between India and Pakistan and to help prevent loss of lives and homes,” Malala added.

The Pakistani activist also said the citizens of both countries know that the “true enemies are terrorism, poverty, illiteracy and health crisis – not each other”.

Tensions between both the countries erupted again when over 40 Indian CRPF soldiers were killed in Pulwama attack carried by Pakistan supported JeM terrorist group.
