PHOTO: INSTAGRAMemail@example.com A few days ago, a resolution was moved in the National Assembly requesting nomination of a Nobel Peace Prize for Imran Khan. The resolution, which comes after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s decision to release the Indian pilot, argues that Imran has “played a sagacious role in reducing recent tensions between Pakistan and India which were created due to the warmongering attitude of the Indian leadership”.

The resolution has led to fierce debate, both in electronic and particularly social media. Many PTI supporters, as expected, … [Read more...] about Despite his achievements, Imran Khan does not deserve a Nobel Peace Prize

The committee said Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege had been “the foremost, most unifying symbol both nationally and internationally of the struggle to end sexual violence in war and armed conflict”.

On Monday, Dr. Denis Mukwege, a hero for brutalized women in his native Democratic Republic of the Congo, will receive the Nobel Peace Prize, along with an extraordinarily courageous young activist, Nadia Murad, herself a victim of profound sexual violence. There is no one I can think of more deserving of the prize than Mukwege, whom I’ve had the honor to know for nearly a decade. Mukwege is not a household name. But it should be. And, I dearly hope the Nobel Peace Prize will give Mukwege the platform he deserves. He founded Panzi Hospital in the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo. The hospital treats women and girls who have been victims of exceptional violence, including gang rape and vaginal assault with weapons, not just male organs. … [Read more...] about Opinion: Nobel Peace Prize winner is inspiration to all
