Youngest Nobel Prize winner calls on the international community to respond to the suffering of Kashmiris.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai on Thursday expressed concern over the deteriorating situation in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir, following New Delhi's decision withdrawing special status granted to the region.
"Today I am worried about the safety of the Kashmiri children and women, the most vulnerable to violence and the most likely to suffer losses in conflict," the youngest Nobel Prize winner said in a tweet.
The children's education rights activist said: "The people of Kashmir have lived in conflict since I was a child, since my mother and father were children, since my grandparents were young. For seven decades, the children of Kashmir have grown up amidst violence."
Malala jointly won 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with India's Kailash Satyarthi for their cause and struggle, demanding the right to education for all children.
"I hope all south Asians, the international community and concerned authorities respond to their [Kashmiris'] suffering," she added.
