Some people say that by winning the Nobel Prize Malala Yousafzai joins Pakistan’s loneliest club on Nobel Prize winners. This prize might just the thing this nation needs at the time.

This 17 year old school girl is the prime survivor of a Taliban assassination attempt.  This is why her triumph is a historic day for the nation of Pakistan. This prize also makes her one of the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Prize and also the second Pakistani.

In splitting the award between an Indian child rights activist and a Pakistani schoolgirl, the Nobel committee weighed years on animosity between two disputing nations.
