“I am not worthy of Nobel Peace Prize, person who solves Kashmir dispute will be” – PM Imran

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said he is not worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize and that the person who solves the Kashmir dispute will be worthy of the prize instead.

“I am not worthy of the Nobel Peace prize. The person worthy of this would be the one who solves the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and paves the way for peace & human development in the subcontinent,” the premier tweeted, amid worldwide acknowledgement of his peace gesture for releasing Indian air force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman after his plane was shot down.


Prime Minister Imran’s tweet comes as social media and prominent personalities in the political circles have been calling for him to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to defuse tensions with India.

#NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan began trending on Twitter soon after the prime minister announced in a joint session of Parliament on Thursday that Pakistan would release Wing Commander Abhinandan after the Pakistan Air Force shot down his aircraft as it intruded into the Pakistani airspace. Abhinandan was handed over to Indian officials at the Wagah border crossing the next day.
