NF Bureau: In a shocking and weird development, the Pakistanis have started a movement, demanding Nobel Peace Prize for their PM Imran Khan, saying he has emerged as an epitome of peace and harmony.
Pakistan information minister Fawad Choudhry moved a resolution in the National Assembly Secretariat, calling for a Noble Peace Prize for Imran Khan.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan played a sagacious role in reducing recent tension between Pakistan and India which was created due to the war mongering attitude of Indian leadership. The aggression manifested by Indian leadership had brought the two nuclear weapon states to brink of war, endangering the lives of tens of millions of people on both sides of the border. The situation was averted due to proactive and deft handling of the situation by Prime Minister Imran Khan. Keeping in view his contribution towards peace in the region, Prime Minister Imran Khan may be given Nobel Peace Prize,” the resolution said.
The netizens in Pakistan joined the chorus by launching a hashtag #NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan campaign and starting an online petition with the aim of collecting maximum online signatures from across the globe.
The development came in the wake of killing of 3 civilians in Kashmir in Pakistani firing. the deceased included a 5-year-old baby and a 9-month-old infant. Pakistan is yet to take any action on JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar although Jaish had claimed responsibility for Pulwama terror attack.
