After the recent events in Indian occupied Kashmir, lots of national and international celebrities have raised their concerns against the tyranny of Indian forces. Amidst all the tension Twitterati didn’t forget to call out the Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai for her silence over Indian atrocities in Kashmir.
Renowned Pakistani actress Veena Malik also joined Twitterati in raising their concerns regarding Malala Yousafzai’s silence. In a tweet, where she tagged the Nobel laureate, Veena Malik questioned Malala Yousafzai’s awareness regarding the tense situation in Kashmir.
Hey @Malala I’m just wondering if you do know about Kashmir issue?
I am a bit surprised that you haven’t talked or said anything about in regard to India-Kashmir-Pakistan current situation….Unfollowing You Right Here…!!!
Malala finally took to Twitter to voice her support to the Kashmiri people after 3 Days. Malala’s response came three days after India’s controversial move of scrapping Article 370 of its constitution.
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. I care about Kashmir because South Asia is my home — a home I share with 1.8 billion people including Kashmiris.
We represent different cultures, religions, languages, cuisines and customs. And I believe we all can live in peace. I know we can appreciate the gifts that all of our people, in all their diversity, contribute to our world.
There is no need for us to continue to suffer and hurt each other. 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.
I hope all South Asians, the international community and concerned authorities respond to their suffering. Whatever disagreements we may have, we must always defend human rights, prioritise the safety of children and women and focus on peacefully resolving the seven-decade-old conflict in Kashmir.
