Nobel peace prize winner and child education activist Malala yesterday put a controversial tweet on the situation of Kashmir in the post 370 era.

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist and the youngest to receive the Nobel peace prize along with Kailash Satyarthi for her work on female education and women upliftment in society in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan.

Few days ago, India has taken a historic move to revoke article 370 from Jammu & Kashmir and make it truly an integral part of India. By this act, Kashmiris used to enjoy special benefits from the Central Government.

“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,”
