The video of her speech has been shared widely on the internet, in which, she strongly denounced the propaganda mechanism by Pakistan to dent India’s image on the international stage and objected to Malala for defaming her country and homeland by calling it oppressed.

Mir urged everyone to stop polarising Indians on grounds of religion, Indians won’t allow you to break up us, adding that, Mir said our perpetrators living in the UK in Pakistan will stop maligning my country.

During the event, Mir also received the Diversity Ambassador Award for championing diversity in the J&K region.

The program was organised to provide a comprehensive overview of the socio-cultural and political landscape of the region. The event emphasised the diverse nature of Jammu and Kashmir, highlighting its multicultural, multireligious, and multilingual characteristics.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would be arrested in the next two to three days, said Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Saurabh Bharadwaj during a press conference in Delhi on Friday. Adding that, he said the BJP was worried over the alliance between AAP and Congress.

Addressing the press, Bharadwaj claimed that the BJP has warned the party of allying with Congress in different States. If AAP still does so, Kejriwal would be jailed and there is only one way to keep Kejriwal out of arrest, and that is not to ally with Congress, the AAP leader added.

Bharadwaj further said that his party received the information that Kejriwal would be arrested, following which, he asked the Centre why it was showing such haste. Bharadwaj also said that his party is aware that a notice under CrPC 41A is ready to be served to Kejriwal. And it’ll be handed over to him today and he will be arrested in the coming 2 to 3 days.

Taking a swipe at BJP, he said that they can arrest Kejriwal if they want to but the alliance between AAP and Congress will still take place.

Delhi Minister and AAP leader Atishi, too, hit out at the BJP and told the Centre to send as many notices as they wish, as many summons as they wish, arrest every leader of AAP, hang AAP leaders by the noose, but the party will not be bent down by their threats. AAP has fought for this country’s republic and Constitution and AAP will continue to do so in any circumstances.

On this, AAP leader Gopal Rai said that BJP need no basis but whosoever will speak against, BJP will act against them. From Delhi to Punjab the way roads have been blocked and converted into cantonments shows the frustration of the Centre.
