Nobel Peace Prize to Yazidi Activist and Congolese DoctorNadia Murad, a survivor of sexual violence by the Islamic State is one of the two noble peace prize winner this year. Dr Denis Mukwege, a gynaecological surgeon who founded a hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the co-winner of this award. They were awarded this Prize for their campaigns against the usage of rape as a weapon of war.
They worked together putting aside the risks for their lives and helped the victims.
Around 331 individuals and Organisations were nominated for this award this year and the committee went with these two. Both the winners in their own way brought the wartime sexual abuses to the public and made the criminals held responsible for their actions.
Let us congratulate the winners on their getting the noble peace award.
