Pakistani Taliban 'delighted' over Malala missing Nobel Peace Prize

Johannesburg, Oct. 12 (ANI): The Pakistani Taliban has said that they were delighted that Malala Yousafzai, the education activist whom they had tried to kill last year, missed out on the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid said Malala didn't deserve the Nobel Peace Prize as she did 'nothing big', News24 reports.

He further added that the award should be given to the real Muslims, who are struggling for Islam, because Malala is against Islam and she is secular, so she didn't deserve it.

The 2013 Nobel Peace Prize was given to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) for its work to rid the world of chemical arms.

The 16-year-old was shot in the head on her school bus on October 9 last year for speaking against Taliban.

She was flown in critical condition to Britain for treatment and went on to become a global ambassador for children's rights. (ANI)
