Indian children’s right activist Satyarthi & Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai got Nobel Prize
Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for advocating girls’ right to education, and Indian children’s right activist Kailash Satyarthi won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.
Mr. Kailash Satyarthi is not an international celebrity like 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan, with whom he is sharing the prize. Instead, he has labored for three decades to shave away at the numbingly huge problem of child slavery in India, using undercover operatives and camera crews to find the airless workrooms and mine shafts where children were being kept.
Malala Yousafzai was the 17-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl, education advocate and survivor of a Taliban assassination attempt is her country’s most famous teenager and has been the darling of the international community for more than two years now.
