History was made today when an Indian and a Pakistani national jointly shared the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2014. The Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2014 has been jointly awarded to Indian rights activist Kailash Satyarthy and Pakistan's Malala Yusafzai.

Kailash Satyarthi is an Indian children's rights activist. He runs Bachpan Bachao Andolan Group in New Delhi, which has freed over 80,000 children from various forms of servitude and helped in successful re-integration, rehabilitation and education. He has been active in the Indian movement against child labour since the 1990s.
Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani school pupil, education activist. She was shot shot at by the Taliban in 2012 for protesting against curbs on girls attending school in her town in the Swat Valley.

They are honored with this award for "their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education". There were a record 278 nominations this year, 19 more than ever before – including US whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Pope Francis. Also on the list of nominees was an anti-war clause in the Japanese constitution and the International Space Station partnership. The Nobel committee said it “regards it as an important point for a Hindu and a Muslim, an Indian and a Pakistani, to join in a common struggle for education and against extremism,”.

  • An Indian wins the coveted Nobel Prize for peace after 35 years.
  • Satyarthy is the second Indian after Mother Teresa, to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
  • Malala at 17 years is the youngest ever winner of the prestigious peace award. 
  • She is Pakistan's first Nobel laureate.
Last year The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2013 for its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons. Peace Prize was the fifth of this year's Nobel prizes. The Nobel prizes in Medicine , Physics,  Chemistry  and Literature 2014 were already announced.
