Despite opposing good relations with Pakistan, Hindu right-wing party Shiv Sena said on Wednesday said it will always welcome child activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzai to India as she stood up against terrorists.

"I want to tell all peacemakers in India that Shiv Sena and Saamna has appreciated the efforts and the struggle carried by Malala against terrorism in Pakistan. If Malala comes to India, Shiv Sena would also welcome her," Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said in Mumbai, according to the Times of India.

"People like Kasuri and Hafiz Saeed spread terrorism and violence against India whereas there is a small girl like Malala, who is still fighting against terrorism and has won the Nobel Peace Prize for the same," he added.

Further, Raut said, "So, if she is welcomed in India, it would send a great message to all Pakistan lovers in India that terrorism should not be promoted, instead it should be dealt with harshly."

Malala, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, had recently said she wished to pay a visit to India, especially to Delhi and Mumbai, to inspire young girls there.

Humarine | 6 years ago | Reply Shive Sena and RSS will soon be deserted from the heart of Indians if they go forward thus.India is a huge country and this kind of groups can grow only in the western and central India where people eat and make noise much but think less.Being a common Indian I am too believe we are both citizen of a country and global citizen so single among the thousand in this world is neither alone nor minor.Millions of extremists are minor and alone in the world instead.
prabhjyot singh madan | 6 years ago | Reply India is not only Bombay, Maharashtra. It has over 28 states and shiv sena is nonexistent in all of them. Please try to give importance to trinamool congress and Calcutta city incase you heard of the place. It was the capital of India till 1912. All places go with their growth phase and downfall just like Calcutta and so will Bombay with shiv sena, but we will survive as a nation. Btw , Calcutta is known as the cultural capital of India Just like Bombay is known as the commercial capital of India and yes, shiv sena sucks because they don't respect our constitution. Rab rakha
