-London: Nobel peace prize winner and Pakistan education rights

activist Malala Yousafzai has urged the UN to work  towards peace in

Kashmir and help children in the valley to go back to school.

Malala, 22, tweeted that she was deeply concerned  about reports that

Kashmiri students “have not been able to attend schools for more than

40 days” , and “about girls who are afraid to leave their homes”.

     “I am asking leaders, at UNGA (UN General Assembly) and beyond,

to work towards peace in kashmir, listen to kashmiri voices and help children

go safely back to school,” the youngest -ever Nobel laureate tweeted on saturday.

She remarks drew sharp critisism from some Indian Twitter users, including

functionaries of the BJP and the Shiv Sena, who asked her to speak out on the

plight of the girls belonging to the minority communities in Pakistan.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration have tried to keep schools open but

few pupils have turned up. While many parents fear for the safety of the pupils, posters

have appeared in Srinagar  warning people to keep their children away from schools.
