Malala added that weeks-long curfew imposed in IHK have made several schools shut down – keeping children away from their classrooms as well as hampering education. “I stand with the people of Kashmir.” She also mentioned to Dailytimes.com.pk that her 14 million Kashmiri brothers and sisters have always been close to her heart.
