As it is known, Malala was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago for insisting that girls as well as boys have the right to an education. Satyarthi, 60, has been at the forefront of a global movement to end child slavery and exploitative child labor since 1980. Some commentators advanced idea that once representatives of India and Pakistan are together on the podium for peace this must be a strong signal for the both nations to make peace. Committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland also 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 Committee explained they focused on children problems because “In conflict-ridden areas in particular, the violation of children leads to the continuation of violence from generation to generation.”
