If Malala Yousafzai wins the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize, she would be the youngest
Pakistani activists and writer Malala Yousafzai, who cheated death when Taliban militants shot her is expected to be a Nobel Prize winner this year. The girl who voiced her opinion against the strict regime of Taliban would be the youngest if she wins the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize.

Having taken a bullet to the head and survived it, the girl now lives in London as Taliban militants have openly said that if they got their hands on her, she would not be alive. Having braved the attack, she also often speaks openly against the tyranny of the regime and the necessity for the empowerment of women, which has made her a superstar. Many people are rooting for her win.

The only thing that could work against is her age. As was reported by, the youngest Nobel prize winner till date is Tawakkol Karman, a Yemeni human rights activist, who was 32 years of age when she won the award. Many experts are of the opinion that this award can burden the 16 year old, Malala. NTB further reported that Tilman Brueck, head of SIPRI said, “I am not sure it would be suitable from an ethical point of view, to give the peace prize to a child.”

Tuesday is the day when the names of winners would be announced. Expectations are also rife that the Higgs Boson would also be awarded Nobel trophy in the physics section. While there is a lot of controversy with the God's particle, a number of experts believe that the award would go some other way.

It is sure that if either one of them wins the Nobel prize, it would create quite a stir and people will talk about it.
